No, he’s just carrying the elephant.

Well, I was busy working on something else Thursday evening and didn’t get a chance to write up a proper blog post…but, you know, I probably gave you enough to read this week. So, here, please enjoy this full-page illustration from the inexplicably-in-my-collection Pac-Man: An Activity Book from 1982:

You’re welcome!

    Wow, I guess I had never really thought before about ghost monsters having an internal life, feelings, weird childhood traumas involving elephants, etc. This little comic panel has really opened my eyes to the implicit bias I held against GMs.

    I love that the doctor’s name is “Dr. Fraud”.

    This haunts my sleep, belches angrily into my very soul

    Actually, Smichal, its placement on the diploma identifies “Dr. Fraud” as the name of the institution that issued it, not the graduate.

    I guess that, if you go to a psychiatrist who got his degree from the School of Doctor Fraud, you should not be surprised if he spends the session ignoring you and playing video games.

    What if the elephant is haunting the ghost, and Dr. Fraud’s true job (if he can be torn away from his game) is to discover what is haunting the elephant? This could go far deeper than we first believed…
