{Blinky turns to look at PacMan}
PacMan: Apples! I need apples!

PacMan: First, a slice. Then, we talk.
{Outside the panels...}
Pinky: The world is constanley changing.
Clyde: They haven't stopped making frozen pudding pops, have they???

The author writes:

This is based on a strip that was print the same day that Pac-Man first appeared in Japanese arcades, which was May 22, 1980. There are also mentions of two memes, because once a horse is dead, you gotta keep beatin' it 'till it's nothing but bone.
