A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of spending some time (and more than a few quarters) at the giant arcade in the Cedar Point Amusement park. There were many games I got to try out for the first time, and one of those was the subject of today's Co-Op Classics, Target: Terror. I'll admit to you right off the bat that it's very debatable whether T:T counts as a trueclassic in anyone's eyes, but it is certainly... memorable.
There's an old Saturday Night Live skit, from back in the day when the show was actually funny (hey, it's an editorial, I can say things like that). I'm not sure exactly who was in it, these many years later, but I recall Tom Hanks was the host, and it was in the Phil Hartman/Kevin Nealon era. The skit begins in a family kitchen, when someone drinks milk from the carton, and it's spoiled, gone all chunky and gross. After one person spits it out, the milk is shared by everyone, passing it around until everyone has tried a curdled, nasty sample. "You won't believe how bad this is!" says one of these unfortunates. It's a great skit, funny to this day, and it points out one fundamental quirk that people have.
