    • 6655321

      Pfft. Ally Sheedy by a mile.

  • max

    This game was too damn hard! No one ever saw the end legit!

    • Acilius

      true. that 1 switch that had to be up @ the end was completely abstract & rediculous. Riven was better- just got it on the iphone 🙂

    • MonkeyMadness

      I finished it.

    • Da_Boz

      Good game, bad ending.

    • Ryman

      Game was insanely hard.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=682265258 Lindsey Bergeron

      my next door neighbor growing up was a british exec for pentium. looking back, I'm not sure if it's creepy or pathetic that he spent HOURS figuring out this game with me. yikes.

    • Franklin

      My brother in law just finished it a year or so ago. Now he's on to Battlefield 1942.

    • brian CEN CAL :)

      I'd say the best one of these games was Titanic… EPIC!

  • Shawn

    #7 – Mr. Awesome himself

    • Jim

  • Laura W.

    #2 I still have one of those too! Awesome.

    • Mr E Man

      In the 1970's they made them with a tab that you held in your fingertips, and the balls on string. Lots of wrist injuries trying to figure out how to use them.

      • Karl

        Those were the real deal,Nice and dangerous.I remember when they came out with these plastic fakes,much dissapoint.

        • The Foley

          Anyone remember the ones you could get that would spark when they would collide? They were awesome.

    #18 "I'm watching you bitch, last child actress I was linked to got my ass shot!"

    • tralfaz

      Good one, too bad most people won't get it.

      • Patches

        I got this joke before it was funny, but you've probably never heard it.

        Hipster douchebag.

  • NateyTheGreaty


    I wouldn't care when I didn't get the extra guys, because I was amused by what I created when I messed up.

    SMB3 is one hell of a game, love it.

      I live in PA and when we had bad storms a few days ago the Dish reception would flicker and 1/2 of the screen would be a shot at the top of a mans head and the bottom would be the bottom of a womens face. I said it reminded me of #19 haha.. WIN!

  • Kman

    #20 — One of the greatest leaders of the free world. You may not have liked his politics; but he got shit done….and thus begins the barrage of anti-Regan comments

    • Rightclicksaveas

      …and he is a table

    • MonkeyMadness

      He looks fun to play with though.

    • Animal_Mother

      You'd get more leadership out of this table than you would our current president.

      • http://twitter.com/valorikx221 @valorikx221

        Well said Animal

    • Chaos

      Reagan was fantastic when it came to foreign policy, but he really screwed things up on the home front. His belief in the trickle-down theory (that giving more money to the rich would mean that that money would trickle down the poor) and his and other 80s Republicans push for deregulation is partially responsible for the economic crisis. Because of Reagan the rich got richer, the poor got poorer, and Wall Street was allowed to run wild and unchecked.

      • The Pict

        Good thing Clinton came along and fixed all that.

  • Kman

    Sorry Chivers…having a hard time this morning. My previous comment was for, of course, #18. Sorry for the incorrect photo.

    • Bill57

      he is way better then Ossma bin oboma in his sleep

      Clone him & Teddy Roosevelt.

      • whodat

        vote independent

    • Red

      Sure could use a guy like this now, unlike this absolute idiot we have in the White House. I wish Mr. Community Organizer would keep his trap shut, everytime he speaks, the stock market tanks.

      • n word jim

        talk about politics somewhere else

  • Steamboat Willie

    Holy shit a Triforce.

    • free willy

      Thought the same thing

      • Master_Rahl

        Sooooo, the 'Busters are down with Link? That's a pretty bad ass team-up.

  • The Bandit

    #10 …classic…who wouldn't remember "Halt, Stop" when walking around the corner or entering a room. I really have to play it again…

    • Franklin

      "Mein Leben!"

    • Frylock.

      hypegames.com has it, for free. though the sfx aren't quite right… when you shoot a dog it screams out like a soldier…

    • gamechild

      there is also the version for your iPhone, i still play it for hours… the good old times!

      • Texasks

        ^WHAT!?!?!? Thats really a thing!? Is it like the original?

  • chrisdg74

    #13 – Heard yesterday they're making a sequel.(same producers)

    Well, looks like I'm next. Good thing, too. I gotta do a photo shoot for GQ in about an hour and a half. Yeah, they've been after me for months. Doin' some underwear deal. I don't know what…

    • https://www.facebook.com/jason.ciotti Jason Ciotti

      The same studio is making "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"

      • Master_Rahl

        all I know is if Keaton's not in it… don't bother wasting time/money. He made the movie a classic. One of my all-time faves.

        "Nice fuckin' model!!!" <honk honk>

  • Pokepoke

    #15 its the only food that I allways have 100% of the time in my house. epic bugles

  • ChiverBU

    #10 I'm kind of happy the floppy discs are gone, they gave me a weird sensation when I touched them.

    • mr ruffles

      thats why they are not meant to go up your ass

      • ChiverBU

        Yes, because touching means inserting things in your ass

    • http://laughingseraphim.com/pressworks Cecil

      My first ever copy of windows 95 was on Floppy. IT was a discounted upgrade from 3.11 for workgroups that I had.
      Yeah. There was like 88 of them.

  • mooseknuckle907

    #17 I had a bunch of these til I left them out one day near our drainage…and it rained. I was so bummed

    • MonkeyMadness

      So, what happened to them? Do they dissolve in water?

      • mooseknuckle907

        Down the rain drain. sad sad day in my life

    • Animal_Mother

      Muscle men rocked!

    • Travis

      I loved monster in my pocket. Z-bots and Battle Beasts too!!!

    • gnocco

      Could they get away with selling these inarticulate rubber "toys" to today's kids? Or would kids not even consider these due to the flashy toy market?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1362312578 Brad Hardesty

      I have all 233 figures, the poster, the ring, and the belt. You can pick up sizable lots of em on ebay.

  • Animal_Mother


    The exact opposite of our current president.

    • daveh873

      …meaning a white Republican?

      • Animal_Mother

        Race is always at the forefront of small liberal minds.

        • daveh873

          Wow, testy this morning are we? You have no idea if i'm a republican or a democrat, mainly because I don't bring that shit to a comedy website. It was a joke. White Republican, black Democrat… get it? Take the stick out of your ass and laugh a little.

        • Mal

          Adam Baldwin ftw!

    • truth

      Ron Paul is more like Reagan than the current Republican party. This photo is full of win, only could get better if Bill Murray could have been in there somehow.

    • Chaos

      If by opposite, you mean completely cognisant and not being ravaged by dementia that was impacting his decisions, then yes Obama is the opposite of Reagan.

      • Animal_Mother

        To be clear — depiste Jr.'s claims, President Reagan did not suffer from dementia while in office.

        Obama cognisant? Is he cognisant that his Keynesian economic policies are failing or is he just stupid? Based on his speech last night, I'd say stupid.

        • Red

          Obama: Worst. President. Ever. This guy is so bad, he makes Jimmy Carter look good.

          • dfgdfs

            ur fucking stupid, did you forget the 8 years before him when bush totally fucked our whole country for his own personal gain?, pshh, u prolly voted for that retarded little cowboy.

  • MonkeyMadness

    Dead vs. Alive?

    • Animal_Mother

      One of their many, many differences. One brought down the Soviet Union, the other wants to import its failed policies.

  • MonkeyMadness

    #28 That's not the original Stretch Armstrong. I had the Stretch Monster, now that was cool! 😛

  • Tony

    They have these in my doctors office.
    Next to the 15 year old Golf Digest magazines.
    Apparently some kid named Woods is supposed to be the Next Big Thing…..

    • newscot

      Nice. I instantly thought of a doctor's office when I saw this picture too.
      In fact, I don't think I've ever seen one outside of a doctor's office…

      • Texasks

        There is one of those where you wait to get your car washed in my town! still kinda tempted to play with it

    • http://www.facebook.com/kindlin David Terry

      I literally had that exact toy as a kid. I occasionally fucked with it all the way till 2nd grade. I wonder what my grandma did with it? I want it for my eventual kid…. I loved that thing….
