Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and 80s Novelty Songs

My friend Charlie rightly blames me for his failing French in first year university. I was a bad influence. Very bad.

“Come on! You don’t want to go to your French lab! Let’s hit the arcade and play Pac-Man.”  We actually did have Pac-Man fever. And there was no vaccine or cure.

That’s how Charlie ended up with 27% on his exam. This brings back all kinds of memories. (Thanks to Wesley for the link.)
