Pacman, the popular 1980's computer game is said to be dejected, following a near twenty year drought of other work.
Speaking from his home in the back of a ZX Spectrum yesterday the miserable yellow computer graphic said: 'I have not worked for twenty years now. No-one returns my calls, I even got turned down by McDonald's, and they employ those useless blocks from Tetris'.
The Prince of Persia similarly finds it hard to find work in a non IT related field, but at least he has his families fortune to fall back on, and three wives.
Pacman said: 'I have not even got anybody else in my life. And as for that game, it ruined me, it ruined me. They paid me for my likeness once, I did not even get residuals. They have sewn me up like a Kipper'.
Bill Gates was nowhere to be found, and did not even return our calls.
Maybe if the washed up computer graphic got over himself, he would have more luck with the fairer gender. It can't be that bad really, after all many of us remember him from rainy days. Just save your sympathy for the Ball in Binatone Tennis, now, that was a boring job.
