You Chose Wrong

It seems like there’s a tumblr for everything. But this is good, because the odds of finding an interesting tumblr are increasing.

Case in point: You Chose Wrong, one devoted entirely to the death pages of Choose Your Own Adventure books and their related counterparts. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen or even thought of Be an Interplanetary Spy, but I definitely remember this unfortunate end.

Nice! I used to read CYOA books back in the day. The only one that sticks out to me is a D&D one though. A quick Google search uncovered the title: The Pillars of Pentergarn. I think I remember this one because some of the art freaked me out, particularly the ones of your fighter and thief being turned into skeletons.

Argh. I meant Pentegarn, not Pentergarn. But anyway… those books were fun. I remember I always read the death endings for fun, even if I chose correctly.

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!
