Funny Little Hidden Joke

Dunno if this has already been mentioned in another thread, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

In the Phatt Island library, there are a group of romance novels, all with titles that suggested a disasterous relationship, and all written by a name thats an anagram of Elaine Marley.

Looks like Elaine found a way to vent after she dumped Guybrush! :rolleyes:

  • Yup :D There's also a "Archeology - X never marks the spot" by I. Jones, and a couple of others. The first two MI games were riddled with awesome in jokes.

    Yeah, it took me a minute or two to get the joke though. *gg* Have they been there in the original version as well?
  • And you should also read the book titled "Kleptomania".
  • I always liked the huge title card cycle that keeps referring you to other places. It goes like this:

    Labyrinths - Zip Codes
    Zip Codes - Indexes
    Indices - Titles
    Titles - Headings
    Headings - Cross-Reference
    Cross-Reference - Referential Obscurism
    Referential Obscurism - Groupings
    Groupings - Catalogs
    Catalogs - Subheadings
    Subheadings - Maze Construction
    Maze Construction - Annotation
    Annotation - Footnoting
    Footnoting - Vicious Pedantry
    Vicious Pedantry - Dewey Decimal System
    Dewey Decimal System - Organizational Schema
    Organizational Schema - Labyrinths

    Also, the book you get if you look up Three-Headed Monkey is pretty funny.
  • and of course the

    "Recursion:
    See Recursion"
