No Cake in Portal 2
Thank god. Nerd jokes like that wear out their welcome quickly because nerds don’t know when to f***ing stop saying them. There are still folks out there who think it’s funny to say, “The cake is a lie,” and they think it’s cool to be my friend because we both like games. Hey, nerd, if you wanna talk to me, tell me a joke I haven’t heard before. Feel ashamed after the jump.
What was I talking about, again? Oh yeah, cake. Take this, internet. “If you thought you were sick of the memes, I was sick of it way ahead of you,” said Erik Wolpaw, one of the lead writers on Portal and Portal 2, to Gamasutra. “I’ve had enough cake jokes.”
“I absolutely do not want to try and resurrect a three-year-old meme. That seems like it would be kind of sad.”
Hear that, internet nerds? The guy who started the joke says it became lame quickly. Remember this, guys, when you’re still adding Guile’s Theme to everything in six months. Think, “Maybe we should try something different now.” Just tryin’ to help here.
