Pac-Man was about a hungry circle that lived in a haunted square.

Pong was about two lines negotiating the joint-custody of their dot.

Frogger was about drivers ignoring the world's most polluted river.

But I can't remember who started WWI.

Several times a week, a generous pot-head (or glaucoma patient) gives the homeless woman who lives in my subway station a free joint. She then sits on her bench, burning it down, filling the cave with sticky sweet smoke.

I wonder if the pot-head thinks he's funny, giving a homeless woman an unbearable case of munchies she can't afford to cure.
