I am just exercising my liver. Exercise is healthy.

Yeah, well, I almost died from over-exercising this year.  :P

Gotta stop swinging out of my weight class...

What's the story behind the Moon Pies?  I saw someone handing out a box of them at ZapCon and I've seen Moon Pies mentioned in 2 or 3 different threads on KLOV.

Who cares?  STFU and eat the Moon Pie.  That's what I did.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Just kidding! Moon Pies are always handed out by Alpha-Tron and theyíre done as a tribute to the late, great Bob Roberts (who isnít dead, but itís a tribute just the same).

I just asked for the back story since I've seen them mentioned way to many times to be a coincidence.  I seriously cannot figure out why someone is getting bent over me asking for the back story.

They should be.  Fun fact.  Cows originated and were domesticated in Europe.

Wtf is graham cracker??

Digestive biscuit?  Or "The graham cracker is a sweet, cinnamon-flavored cracker made with graham flour." if you will.  Not to be confused with Graham Norton who is still sweet but not covered in cinnamon nor is he made from flour.

donít you blaspheme in here.... I said donít you blaspheme in here!!!

Not getting bent.  You stated that Moon Pies suck. I respectfully disagreed.

My comment had nothing to do with you and I only said that about moon pies when I was told to shut to ---fudgesicle--- up and eat one after all I did was ask if there was a story about them.

Well you did make a general statement of a making comment "that couldn't possibly offend anyone", then  "I seriously cannot figure out why someone is getting bent over me asking for the back story."
Didn't know if that was directed at me, or at pbj.  Next time just reply directly at pbj if you're talking about him. Quoting works.  There's no need to be indirect here. 

As yotsuya stated, Alpha-Tron gives them out as a tribute to the real Bob Roberts.  Bob Roberts is an arcade op legend. His site has not only a lot of arcade products for sale, but a wealth of knowledge on building, restoring, maintaining and fixing arcade cabinets and electronics.  If you haven't been to his site, do yourself a favour and peruse his many articles and tutorials. There's so much info there!

Bob is also notorious for adding a lagniappe to your orders, sometimes it's treats, or trinkets, or in my case small tools (I once got a Pocket Wire Stripper/Crimper).

But Bob's health isn't great these days, so he had to take a step back from arcade supplies and got his family to cover for him in his stead.

Yeah I've found his website.  I built the power section for the Robotron cab using a drawing I found there.

You guys should just eat Pop Tarts, and stop this insistent moon pie squabbling.

As a Mardi Gras parade veteran I can attest to the fact that a Moonpie and a Dixie beer is truly the breakfast of champions.

Nothing like the smell of free Moonpies in the Mardi Gras morning.
