RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

GR Mailbag: Why Waste Money On Stamps?

Insert Tab A In Slot B
From: Trent
Subject: (no subject)
can you play games, and if so, how? what do you do?
Hey Trent,

Playing games is actually very easy, anyone can do it. Just follow these simple instructions:

1. Fill kettle with clean water.
2. Grasp plug firmly, making sure it is not wet, and insert in electric outlet.
3. Wait for water to boil. Kettle will whistle when water is ready.

CAUTION: Whistle will expel hot steam. Do not place hands or face in front of whistle.

Oh wait! Those are the instructions for my electric teakettle. I guess this gaming stuff is harder than I thought. Let me get back to you.

Oh, Canada!
From: "Bill Stilwell" ********@globalserve.net
Subject: I have had enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Listen hear all you sociopathic morons if i hear one more 
snide comment about canada i'll... i'll... well maybe i wont 
do anything but you can bet your new ps2 that i'll be really 
angry. So please lay off the Canada jokes and start makeing 
fun of the U.K. or something.
Thanx.
(p.s. sorry aboot the sociopathic morons bit.)
Dear Bill,

We certainly did get a lot of Canadian comments about last week's mailbag, and our upcoming game, "Jebus Christ, Hockey Star."

Basically, this thread all started even further back than that when the mighty lumberjacks and cute little Eskimos that populate Canada discovered that they cannot get SegaNet in their igloos. Some Canadians even put down their maple syrup long enough to write us and point out that we never answered the original question! They still want to know when SegaNet will arrive in Canada.

Unfortunately, the overweight, loud, boorish, poorly educated, no-health-care, gun waving, egocentric Americans who work at Sega do not have an answer yet.

However, because we care about Canada, here is this letter again in bad French.

Do What I Say, And Nobody Gets Hurt.
From: ***********.com 
Subject: freegame
I would like to get a free game and no tricks
Ok! Ok! We give up! Just don't do anything rash.

If we can all stay calm, I'm sure we can negotiate without you hurting any of your hostages... whoever or whatever they might be. After all, we did manage to successfully deal with David Koresh.

Just go to the phone both at the corner of 6th and Cedar to get your game. Wait for the phone to ring. Be patient. Really patient.

Right On The Money
From: "Phil Simko" *****@hotmail.com
Subject: sorry, gotta rant
i may be just a high school student, and not a particularly 
intelligent one at that, but. . .what in the hell is wrong 
with the people who write to your mail bag? the vast majority 
of the letters you receive are incomprehensible nonsensical 
drivel that have absolutely no point other than to have 
people make utter fools of themselves. i quote: "i am a retard 
and i am over weight by about 10 stone i am only 15." i'm 
sorry, but that makes absolutely no sense. anyway, keep up the 
good work, and excuse my vehement distaste for your readers - 
they're not all complete morons.
Hey Phil,

You're absolutely right. Everyone who writes to our mailbag is obviously a raving lunatic.

Hi Dudeman,

Welcome to the Mailbag! Have you read Phil's letter directly above this one? Don't worry, a case of Ritalin is on the way. Just remember not to violate the judge's restraining order.
