Comic Explains Why PAC-MAN is a Nightmarish Horror Story

I have to admit I've never given Pac-Man much thought. Sure, I played it a bunch as a kid at my local pizza parlor, but I never actually stopped to examine the deeper message the game might be trying to offer. This comic from SMBC Comics (via Geekxgirls) suggests one interpretation of the game that posits a story that sounds like a horrifying punishment straight out of ancient Greek mythology. I bet you'll think about this next time you play Pac-Man — I know I will.
