I was one of them. Still am.
I once had the chance to speak with him. He had a lot of energy.

Godspeed.

Indeed - is there a way I can posthumously roll to give him extra charisma points?

Back in the day, one of my hobbies was devising random name generators that used dice. No matter how cool a system I came up with, I would never have been able to devise one that would come up with that name.

That reminds me of when E33 and I were getting married and we thought we might choose a new name. We decided to keep to our heritage, Russian and Welsh...not a good plan, talk about consonants!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my honor to introduce... Mr. and Mrs. Gwynnlloydskinev!

No need to thank me. I'm just happy to help out.

aaaaaand that's why we never changed it. Recently LuRu had occasion to talk with a Polish person and she informed us that Rudawsky means enjoyment in Polish, so turns out we're happy we never changed anyway.

Okay so I love how they keep putting in the "imaginary" part. I am sure the advertisers were like,"hmm, we need to show how exciting this game is where everyone sits around and uses their imagination..." It reminded me of how I got duped into completely begging for Hungry Hungry Hippos because the commercial looked so exciting. I have never been so disappointed with a product in my life. In case the commercial isn't burned into your memories, check out how much fun these kids are having. Did anyone ever have this much fun playing this stupid ass game?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltljWakR66w&feature=related

Okay, so then in searching for that I found this, well I found a lot of weird hungry hippos videos but this one is the best in my opinion. Particularly the hungry hippo reference in the middle.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWFp3SzG16U&feature=related

Who is this boy and what in the hell possessed him to make that video?
