Introducing the new video game platform that will blow all the old ones
away -- P.L.A.T.O.(tm)!

P.L.A.T.O. stands for Perennially Luminous And Terrific Overmind! It's
the gaming platform so visionary, so amazing, so mind-bendingly perfect,
that it doesn't have any graphics or user interface -- because it
doesn't need them! In fact, having graphics or user interface would
merely mar the perfection that is P.L.A.T.O.!

P.L.A.T.O. comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes, one to suit any
red-blooded American or green-blooded Vulcan! Pick the big
Barcalounger(tm) model, which doubles as a Barcalounger, and nap while
your pulse races as you play the most awesomest video games possible!
Take your P.L.A.T.O. in capsule form and get that extra bolt of
nutrition you need as you take on the conceptual action-based wizardry
strategoism perfection that is P.L.A.T.O.! Release the gaseous form of
P.L.A.T.O. and imbibe its gentle fragrance as you race down the
reflex-challenging mental labyrinth of P.L.A.T.O.! Bath in P.L.A.T.O.'s
gentle rays, and be content!

Buy P.L.A.T.O. now, or be proven genetically inferior forever!
Available soon at Toys R Us and Staples.

In Utah, there is a building just off I-15 with a sign that says:

VIRTUAL GOLF BARN

I laugh now just thinking about it. I think adding "barn" to almost
anything makes it funny. Dragon Barn. CIA Barn. Ninja Barn. Crunchy Corn
Barn. "Women's Dress Barn" (another actual Utah store) cracks me up,
because (a) "barn" connotes livestock, not fashion, and (b) "women's"?.

I mean to say, really. "Women's"?

Note that, in the unregistered version, it takes an extra five minutes to
get to sleep.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is where I realized this was a troll. Wizardry was an RPG, not an
action game. Please check your facts before posting nonsense to USENET!

Student: But what if the cave is just a shadow in another cave?
Socrates: There are some mysteries that are hidden from we mortals.
Student: Has the hemlock kicked in?
Socrates: Fear not, I collected enough silver coins, and now I have an extra
life. Thanks, P.L.A.T.O.!

You've been watching a lot of late night teevee lately, haven't you?
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Uh, Dress Barn is a national chain originating in Stamford, Connecticut,
and Dress Barn Woman is their "large sizes" store or section (as opposed
to Misses and Petites). I think "barn" was really intended to connote
(a) simple, informal styles (their mission statement says "style is about
character, not about expensive labels") and (b) too many of them to fit
in the house. While "Woman" does fall in the WORST EUPHEMISM EVER
category, that's far too pathetic for it actually to be funny. Not from
a clocktower, anyway.

Let's test your theory.

Lint Barn

Potato Barn

Map Barn

Underoos Barn

Hermit Crab Repellent Barn

Fart Barn

I'm not sure the barn really makes the fart that much funnier.

However, Steve Allen would
tell you that "Bart Farn" would
be the funniest thing ever.

Barn Barn.

Nope, that one just doesn't work for me. Perhaps it's one of those, "Sets
that contain all sets except sets that contain themselves," sort of things.
