Cracked.com: 4 'Geek Humor' Books by Authors Who Understand Neither:

[up]That's it exactly. I can't read his stuff because of that.
[up][up] Totally. He's extremely overblown. Well, I also skip everything of Gladstone's, but that's another matter.

[up][up][up]I think that's Seanbaby's schtick, ever since he got his own website and all that.

I've been reading less and less cracked as of late. I don't know why, I just have. This one was legitimately funny though.

Pac-Man with bad breath looks a bit more like Pac-Man after a violent gang shootout.

I generally don't like Seanbaby, but he's spot on with those books.

Keep in mind, 3 of those books are from the early 80's, which is not long after Pac-Man craze started in the US, so it's basically how fast can you crank out joke books. Mr. Byrnes decided to see how many bad puns you could get from "Nintendo".

It was pretty funny, but at the same time, Seanbaby's style starts to grate on me after awhile.

Pac-Man given an enema. Seriously, what the fuck is that shit and who even allowed it to be published? The Big Bang Theory is truly funny compared to that.

There's only one Cracked article I've ever dislike, this one, by way of misconceptions, petty assumptions, and a hint of ridiculous typecasting. Simply put the reasons are bad.

This one I don't mind, but I don't feel the subject is that warranting of a list about it. Like I said, these are kids books, not general humor book. Corny jokes that aren't funny are the medium. It really should've been named "4 'Kids Joke Books' By Authors With No Sense Of Humor (also about Videogames and Computers)"

I also enjoyed "Pac-Man Imitating a Shark" and "Pac-Man Being Fed Intravenously".
High-five!

I got a serious laugh from the former. That's rare.

...on Kotaku, there was once a post about Pac-Man taking a shit.

I'm really hoping he makes another MMA article soon. Those are usually the ones that have me holding my sides in laughter.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
