George Costanza's Frogger high score beaten in real life
What's the deal with Frogger? It's an interactive recreation of a tragic daily occurrence in which frogs become roadkill. Also, it faithfully reproduces how frogs often jump from turtles to logs to crocodiles in order to reach their destination and die upon contact with water.
Weirdest game concept ever? Nah. I don't even want to begin making that list. What is pretty weird, however, is that Twin Galaxies has been offering a cash prize to the first person who could best George Costanza's "high score" in Frogger from that one episode of Seinfeld. Yes, that one.
Since the fake score, 860,630 points, was just made up to look impressive, there's a reason why no one until very recently was able to touch it. If you haven't played Frogger in a while, just know that it's obscenely high for the game.
Pat Laffaye of Westport, Connecticut has shown Larry David -- let's just assume he was personally responsible for creating the fictional score since it makes for a cooler story -- that no number is unachievable in gaming.
For this great accomplishment, we tip our hats in Pat's general direction while trying not to look too envious.
