I saw this poster over on eBay earlier today, and I thought it was really funny. Designed as a promotional piece to encourage arcades to carry the classic game Q*Bert, somebody in the marketing department at Gottlieb got the bright idea to replace pretty much every letter they could with the letter “Q”.

Remember the expletive-spouting orange dude from 1980s arcade game, Q*bert? Well the strange little guy has now been immortalized in this awesome handmade video game quilt by Lenore, an artist over an Evil Mad Scientist Labs.
