BREAKING: More purloined music in LEC games

I don't know if you guys have been following the scandal - and no feeling person could blame you for trying to hide from the awful truth - but it's "come out" that traditional music in the public domain has occasionally been quoted in the Monkey Island soundtracks. INNOCENCE LOST.

You might think that's something, but it gets even worse than those moral arbiters on the front page are willing to scar you with. I won't patronize you by omission. I have it on good authority that Loom flat-out pilfered music from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.  Oh, wrap yourself in the fuzzy slanket of denial if you must; that won't make it any less true.

Hold on!  This just in: In the 18th century setting of Day of the Tentacle, recognizable patriotic tunes like "My Country Tis of Thee" are snuck into the tracks involving the founding fathers and Betsy Ross.  Did they really think they could get away with this?

I am not done updating your ethos, my naive friend.  Turns out, the ubiquitous Latin sequence "Dies Irae," incorporated into perhaps hundreds of works, is woven into the God Machine room in Fate of Atlantis.  But that's far from the worst offence.  Hang onto your hat for this next one -- the very same game, in a total rejection of all decency, also has the shameless audacity to steal the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme song.  I mean, that's the kind of chutzpah you can't even get offended by, because you are too busy admiring the sheer gall of it.

Burn your diskettes.

After weeks of investigation the only other page I found was Between the Sheets Mojo.

It’s best if we never speak of it again

It looks double sided. Does that mean there's a "between Mojo" waiting to be found?

@Rum_Rogers that fold is the same direction as the one on the front page, though, so it's clearly not the same fold

@elTee Then somebody please fix the top-left corner of this page to not resemble a folded sheet.

It is, in fact, a hypercube.

@Rum_Rogers that would make sense if you're thinking of the site as a 2-sided piece of paper, but it's not...

I love that the Scumm Bar theme is a traditional tavern song. How can anyone be upset that Monkey Island just became a tiny bit more real? :)

I truly appreciate that this sarcastic site has an even more sarcastic “secret” side
