Text based fun

Posted By on Wed, Jan 18, 2006 at 5:39 PM

I generally try not to get political on this site, because I try to keep an open mind, and besides, it's not part of my mandate. But this is really funny. If you ever played text-based adventure games on your Commodore 64, you'll know what I mean. Thanks, Bill.

Iraqi Invasion: A Text Misadventure
Revision 88 / Serial number 54892

    Oval Office
    You are standing inside a White House, having just been elected to thepresidency of the United States. You knew Scalia would pull through foryou.

    There is a large desk here, along with a few chairs and couches. Thepresidential seal is in the middle of the room and there is afull-length mirror upon the wall.

    What do you want to do now?

    > INVADE IRAQ
    You are not able to do that, yet.

    > LOOK MIRROR
    Self-reflection is not your strong suit.

    > PET SEAL
    It's not that kind of seal.

    > EXAMINE CHAIRS
    They are two several chairs arranged aroundthe center of the room, along with two couches. Under one couch youfind Clinton's shoes.

    > FILL SHOES
    You are unable to fill Clinton's shoes....
