Nickel News – Burgertime Developer Apologizes For Starting The Childhood Obesity Epidemic

San Jose, CA – The celebration party for the 35th Anniversary of BurgerTime turned bittersweet as the game’s developer issued an unexpected apology for its role in the childhood obesity epidemic.

“It was the ’80s. Kids still went outside to play, Dexatrim was sold over-the-counter, and gamers had to actually stand-up to play arcade games. We had no idea that porting BurgeTime to home consoles would create an obesity epidemic,” said a guilt-ridden former programmer. “On behalf of all skinny, gawky, and nerdy programmers everywhere, we are sorry.”

Members of the shocked crowd which included the Noid (Yo! Noid), Ronald McDonald (McDonald’s Treasure Land Adventure), and Chester Cheetah (Too Cool To Fool) were gobsmacked by the unexpected remarks. Pepsiman was seen running out of the room via the back door and a defiant Chester Cheetah denied any responsibility for the public health crisis. “It’s not easy being cheesy, but it’s crazy to blame a game for being lazy.” said the cool cat.

Retro Gaming Magazine reached out to Chef Peter Pepper for comment but he did not respond to our emails.
