There is actually a fun pop-up out there, courtesy of the Orbitz travel agency. I usually get these when I open www.usatoday.com.

There are several different games, my favorite is two versions of three hole put-put golf (not easy) and a blimp game where you fly the blimp trying to avoid building rooftops and clouds. Those are the challenging ones. There are several stupid ones to, like "dunk the punk" where you throw a baseball at a dunking pool, a frogger game where a bellman tries to cross the street, and a pool splash game. Maybe you like those.

I like th blimp and the glf game. To me, Orbitz sucks because they do not do international flights. nybody play those silly games?

I've played the blimp a couple times and a baseball one.

I like the blimp.

I like the baseball one. I just keep beaning the batter in the head over and over and over ...

The "Dunk the Punk" is fun the first time, because instead of thowing the ball at the target, you can just keep throwing it at the punk. After each hit he becomes more bloodied and bruised.

The baseball one is okay, I like trying to bean the batter. Hmmm... there seems to be a psychotic pattern here.

I think my favorite is the putt putt, even without the opportunity for random violence.
