The Weekly AT Snapshot--October 19th, 2007


Little Timmy has just received a Candyland set for his third birthday! He and his buddies tear open the box and sit down to play.


What game could be more appropriate for these overexcited, sugar-filled little scamps?It is a long, long journey, but Timmy has successfully navigated the lollypop woods, escaped from the molasses swamp, evaded the gooey gumdrops, and reached the final purple space. He draws his very last card...




(Unbeknownst to Timmy and his parents, the evil Michael Barnes has recently infiltrated Milton Bradley's printers, furthering his dastardly plot to insert the Horrible Black Void into each and every board game known to man.)



Today's photo and write-up come to us again from Mark "NeonPeon" Wrynn. Thanks, Mark!

Ha ha! This might be the best one yet...where did you get a picture of Robert Martin as a kid though?

Man Robert hasn't changed at all!

Classic, i am printing a copy of that for my kids candyland!

hehe...guess I'm not in on the Robert Martin joke - he looks more like Dracula (ca. 1987) to me.

Here's where I really got the crying kid from - Snopes link

That really does look like Rob Martin except that he also needs to affect an air of swarmy disinterest...

Isn't that what the smoke in his avatar is for?

Besides, what happened to Robert? And don't tell me he went on a voyage of self discovery playing Anno 1503, because I doubt he'd ever do that.

I might do a whistleblower investigation on the disappearance of Robert Martin...or he might make a surprise reappearance here sometime soon...I dunno, one or the other. Either way, it's sort of like the Howard Hughes story only with 100% less Spruce Goose and 100% more liquor.

Holy shit! Newsflash! Check out the posts under the TALISMAN/KRULL article...
