Quoted from Diospinball:
It was really bad. But, I think it was made as a joke or kind of a protest.
Don't have any insight. But, I could imagine that with the state of the industry, the working conditions and morale might have been pretty low.
I know if I thought I was losing my job, I might do something weird and crazy like that just to get a rise out of people.
If you never have, listen to episode #42 of the Topcast podcast, where Clay interviews Python Anghelo. It's like watching a train wreck.... You just can't turn away. He has a lot to say about Zingy Bingy..... The jist of which being that it was the best machine ever made.
RIP, you crazy mother$&#*er.
