OOh, does it come with a bonus Rosie the Riveter game too? After all, someone had to make all that stuff for the military boys to enjoy.

Yes. The slogan is, "WWii Can Do It!"

Since I didn't stay long on Comics Curmudgeon after Aldo's death, please tell me: Did anyone do a filk involving him undead? I had some ideas:

1. Mary receives a phone call and hears an echo-y voice say, "Remember me, Mary?" She hangs up, clutches her head, and thinks, "This isn't really happening...."

2. The scene from 7/31/06 -- in which Mary gets her groceries from the trunk and screams at the sight of a cross-armed Aldo nearby -- replays itself, only Aldo is off color to indicate either ghosthood or zombiehood. This leads into his famous phrase: "And now, Mary, it's your turn!"

3. In her haste to escape, Mary drives off the cliff.

I recall there was a sappy tribute to Aldo on YouTube...

I did see a few music-set montages. Maybe it was one of those.

That's not Kilroy himself? Robin Williams misinformed me. I guess it makes sense to call the dude something else if he's the one saying, "Kilroy was here."

Yup! I love bad puns.

And, considering I do (and I didn't even know it was Bad Pun Day! For shame!) On that very day, I presented the following joke to my Toastmasters club:

"Our story takes place in a small village where two brothers ran a successful flower stand. In this village was a small monastery, which was falling on hard times. The brothers noticed the success of the flower merchants and decided that it would be a good way for them to raise money, so the abbey [is that the right word?] began selling flowers too. However, people were more apt to buy from a holy man where the money would go to a good cause, so soon their business was more successful than the brothers'. This upset the brothers, so they hired Hugh O'Shanter, one of the roughest, meanest men in the village, to "talk" to the monks to persuade them to give up the flower business. Hugh succeeded, proving the old adage:

Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars."

You may groan now.

Might be nice to have a '40s equivalent of Karaoke Revolution. "It was-a witchcraft...."

It's called "Jacks" or "Action Abacus"!
Seriously, didn't that guy with the military computer come up with his computer space game or whatever some time later? Maybe the 1950's or 60's?
