    This would be funny …if Portal was released this year. I mean: everyone who’s played the game in the 4.5 years since it’s been released has done all these actions in the game itself (minus the licking, or my Portal is broken and i can’t find the lick key). Not exactly novel. Further, there are several excellent fan-made videos that demonstrate these things. H2G: do not encourage the incompetent!
