Giant Companion Cube appears in New York City

When Cal Tech plays a prank on New York City, they do one hell of a job! Of course when you have a sculpture sitting around that’s a big ol’ cube, you’re kind of asking for it!
Don’t worry fellow New Yorkers, keep calm and carry on testing!

    *googles Cal Tech's motto*

    "The truth shall make you free"

    …so the cake…isn't a lie?

    I wonder how long it will take, for some idiot who has no idea what Portal even is, to vandalize this piece of artwork. Lets observe, for science …. you monsters.

    Cave Johnson here.

    Now you may think that Aperture Science had a part to play in this prank on NYC. Truth is, we didn't. Those little Cal Tech bastards broke in and stole it. Now I know you may be feeling a bit of rage at Aperture's Prototype Companion Cube for the Vertically Challenged may have been stolen, but I'll give you the good news: The sentries managed to take two or three of them down on their way out. Suck on that, Beavers. Now I promise that Aperture Science will do everything in our power to remove the large cumbersome object from the center of the square. Until then, enjoy the free testing that we are providing for you. Usually you have to pay us to take part in this. (Especially you, hobos. Just don't use it as a bathroom.)

    Cave Johnson. We're done here.

    I assure you that the giant Companion Cube cannot, and will not attempt to mug you in an alleyway.
    Why do I even bother I don't know anything about New York

    I used to be an sculpture like you, but then I took an emancipation grill to the knee.

    Hello? Is this thing on? I'm still in space here, so… there's that. And I can very honestly say that the Companion Cube is most certainly not my fault. I would hardly say that I can be held responsible for every little detail that goes on during a major core reactor malfunction, which is much less dangerous than everyone thinks. Oh and if someone can tell Valve to stop sending me numbers and Greek letters that'd be great.

    Thank you Cal Tech students, for doing what you must… because you could

  12. HughbertEsq on December 15th, 2011 10:22 am

    Unrelated, but I need to get this onto Halolz and there's no way I'm using Outlook to email it to Shawn… rel="nofollow"> rel="nofollow">

    one time it was covered in a giant yarn sock or something… it's better than just staring at the regular cube! keep doing stuff to it! it is a boring cube that you spin around when youre really bored or drunk! as a new yorker i invite you guys to play with the cube

    This shit always happens like a day after I leave the city.

    Well done gentlemen. Well done.

    The waited companion cube of New York will never threaten to stab you. It will, however probably mug you.
