Smack the Penguin

Don't play this at work, otherwise you'll keep trying it until you beat my score:

Good luck :-)

Update: The above link is down, but one of the comments gave us a new link, which is where the folks posting comments are getting their higher scores.

Update, this time on 1/29: Looks like the guy who originally created this game has it posted here. The link in the update above was reverse engineered off the original with his logo added, but it makes it so the scores are really high (as you can't get a very high score with the original -- at least compared to above).

Update on 2/4: Another variation.

Update on 3/10: There are actually a pile of variations of this game. Many listed in the comments to this entry, but this site lists a pile of variants, as well as a history of the the game. Thanks Neil for the link.

Still to this day, this is by far the most commented on entry on my site, surpassing even the One Weekend a Month my Ass entry.

Update on 10/31/05: Simone sent me a new link for this game. Just so you know, however, you are no longer the most commented on entry on this site. That title belongs to a couple entries.

Update Some Time later: Here's a good article that sums up the Smack The Penguin Phenomenon.
