As Jimmy Buffett sang, “I like mine with lettuce and tomato. And hot dogs. And ice cream. And pickles. Not the purple ones though. Eatin’ my pickle in paradise!”
(Parrotheads send your angry emails now.)
The 1982 Telesys game FAST FOOD recalls a more innocent era – high calorie snacks. Parachute pants. Urkel. We know the mission in the game is to gobble as much food as you can (We Americans do love our excessive consumption!) and we know WHAT to eat. (Hold the purple pickle!). But do we know WHY we eat?
