Scribblenauts and the motherf*cking robot zombies

We can all agree that Scribblenauts is awesome. 5TH Cell is one of my favorite developers, and it makes me emotional to see so many people paying attention to the developer in the weeks following E3. Scribblenauts has generated a huge amount of buzz with its unique concept and ambitious promise of allowing you to bring literally anything you can think of to life.

Following E3, a particular forum post was made and then passed around the Internet as the ultimate pinnacle of Scribblenauts' brilliance, It became something of a meme, mostly due to how over-the-top it was. It went a little something like this: 

"I clicked one, and realized I could RIDE THEM. So I hopped on a f*cking DINOSAUR, traveled back to the present, and stomped the shit out of robot zombies. Did you just read that sentence? Did you really? I F*CKING TRAVELED THROUGH TIME AND JUMPED ON A DINOSAUR AND USED IT TO KILL MOTHERF*CKING ROBOT ZOMBIES."

This forum post (Post 217 in a thread on NeoGAF) has become so well-known that Scribblenauts artist Edison Yan drew the above picture himself, officially commemorating the heroic tale of dinosaurs versus robot zombies. How awesome is that? Apparently, NeoGAF is an in-game item in and of itself. I heard you could defeat enemies with it by claiming you know everything about the game industry and that all gaming blogs are crap. It is a powerful tool, ironically full of tools.
