NES Congratulation! Awards

Were you a champion on the 8-bit Nintendo? I wasn’t, but I remember many a night at my friend Brian’s house playing Mike Tyson’s Punch Out! and Double Dragon, so I was still able to enjoy The NES Congratulation! Awards. There are some amusing screenshots and commentary about such pressing issues as the “Sexiest Game Character” and “Most Screwed Up Game,” but perhaps the best feature of this page is the picture of Head of the Class‘ Eric, Brian Robbins. -ram

I think the coolest thing about the site is that they lifted all of those wacky pictures they had in Nintendo Power.

In the new GameCube game, Luigi's Mansion, he sometimes 'inspects' heavy objects by humping them and saying 'ohh yeah'

Bubble Bobble! We had a day off of college on Tuesday due to 18 inches of snow... so my roommates and I played bubble bobble. (We had a hard time winning because after 99 levels, we were getting pretty drunk.)

anyway, the music on it is so cool, I taped it and used it for my segment on KVSC, the college radio station!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
