    Heh, drinking Konami wouldn’t be THAT bad of a way to die… better than any LSD out there I bet.

    Hmm… Maybe I can find the Konami Poison thing on the internet… You think they just cheaped out and just made a new tag for some bleach or something?

    “I’m not sure how many of these Rube Goldberg murders InterAct pulled off, but in a twisted way I have to admire the sadistic ingenuity of their plan. Why they would advertise it and ruin the complex scheme, I don’t know. Somehow, evil geniuses cannot resist bragging about the brilliance of their work, and as we well know, it always brings their downfall in the end.”

    Haha, those evil guys always have to reveal there plan and just point out the flaws and taunt you how you can’t stop them. You don’t need to be smart to be a superhero, just have to know how to listen. Thats how you get the girls too, just listen. Gosh, life is so easy.
