This week we give away a bunch of t-shirts (thanks to AMD) to you, the readers! We discuss the brand new pinball machine announced from JJP: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Then we muse nostalgically about John's birthday bash, and all the retro goodness we played.

Could be a retheme of Road Show!

AND in case you didn’t already know, and couldn’t work it out for yourself, here’s a section from Wikipedia entry on McDonaldland:
”In 1973, Sid and Marty Krofft sued McDonald's by claiming that the entire McDonaldland premise plagiarized their television show. The Kroffts also claimed that the character Mayor McCheese was a direct rip-off of their character "H.R. Pufnstuf" (a mayor himself). At trial, a jury found in favor of the Kroffts and McDonald's was ordered to pay $50,000. The case was appealed by both parties to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The appeals court, in the 1977 decision of Sid & Marty Krofft Television Productions Inc. v. McDonald's Corp., reassessed damages in favor of the Kroffts to more than $1,000,000.[1][2] As a result, McDonald's was ordered to stop producing many of the characters and to stop airing commercials featuring the characters.”

I would like to point out that you all missed the fact that Vigilante 8 abbreviated is V8.
That is all.
