Coleco's Abomination

Contributed by randyjohnson on Wednesday, 6th February 2019 @ 02:01:31 AM in AEST
Topic: HumorPoetry

When Coleco made the Atari 2600 Donkey Kong Junior, what were they thinking?
When they made this game, it gave new meaning to the word stinking.
I was happy to pay thirty-one bucks for this game in 1983.
But when I played it on my Atari 2600, it truly sickened me.
It gave no points for jumping over enemies and no fruit to kill them either.
If this piece of crap was my wife, I would leave her.
I want to forget this abomination that Coleco made but I don/'/t think I can.
Instead of looking like an ape, Donkey Kong looked like a Gingerbread Man.
This version of DKJ was so awful, I can/'/t believe it was real.
They should/'/ve buried this Atari game with E.T. in the landfill.

I fully understand this lament comrade.
I bought my first wife from Belarus, her picture
was not what I got, but then, she did make a good
pilaf. But was it pilaf? No it was pilaf at all.
It was her brother, Pilaf who came to live with us afterward.
Pilaf was a oafish dude who sat around in our squalid apartment playing Donkey Kong whilest Polina never cared to so much as vacuum.
But then again, you got me on that crappy Atari game,
at least Polina was not attractive enough to ever
mess around town, if you know what I mean.
