THE TOP FIVE ALTERNATE INITIALS ASSHOLE KIDS LIKE ME WOULD TYPE ON A HIGH SCORE LIST FOR AN ARCADE GAME.
Because sometimes you are just lazy and don't care. There were no QWERTY keyboards on "Pacman" or "PunchOut," so who really had the time to toggle through the letters until you found the ones that matched your initials? So, often times, we'd just skip this entirely and quickly pump a few more quarters into the machine to start again. Plus, I wanna say that AAA was probably the most popular initial set on all arcade games, which means there were lots of lazy kids in the United States, or a ton of people named Adam Abraham Adelman.
When you're ten...let's see...You can't drive, you're too young to drink and do drugs, you live in the suburbs, you're killing time till your showing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles starts, and your life really isn't all too bad...so... you rebel by typing "FUK" into the high score list. Yeah, that'll show them.
When I was a young teen, my orthodontist had an arcade version of Asteroids, and if I recall correctly, Donald Ira Kramer was really good at it.
Never fails. Always and forever. The funniest and/or saddest part about the above is that it's a screengrab from a Youtube video for Big Sean's Dance (Ass). If we have a song like that, shouldn't ASS: THE MOVIE, as made famous by Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" be close behind (pun!) Either way, still my favorite name to put on a high score list, and I'm sure if I came across a Pacman machine today, I'd do my best to avoid those colorful ghosts just so I could type "ASS" into the high score list one more time. Like a cowboy riding into the sunset.
Have a good Monday.
