    Was just playing around with Google Earth and its web-friendly cousin, Google Maps, and was wondering if I could find Hasbro's base of operations in Pawtucket, Rhode Island... Digging up the address wasn't that much of a problem, just had to look it up on a map and then find photos of the Hasbro HQ to make sure I was looking at the correct building. :)

    I think I can even make out the base of Mr. Potato Head. :) 

    UPDATE: Microsoft Virtual Earth allows for an even better view:

    DISCLAIMER: Dear Geewun fanboys, please don't get any stupid ideas such as rallying up in front of their HQ and demanding something no-one outside you four or five people actually cares for.

    I wonder how hard it is to get a job there. Always been one of my dreams to work at a toy factory.

    Your best chance would be becoming Chinese, then...*

    *Unless you happen to be a descendant from Chinese immigrants, of course.

    He's bowing to the one called Potato.

    We should all show him respect. He was fundamental in our youth and our growth.

    That, or the guy really is chundering.

    ALL HAIL POTATO...or chunder (as the case may be)

    No, no, he thinks only five can agree on any one thing. Heh. He's probably right.

    He just woke in the mid-afternoon in a wading pool in someones front yard half-buried in Natural Light cans, and was fairly hung over; Hasbro's lawn seemed like a good place to hurl while he tried to figure where the hell he was.
