While it’s not necessarily DC-related, today is Friday and everyone’s brain deserves a short break from reality. Today’s break is compliments of Google celebrating Pac-Man’s 30th birthday by running the game on their homepage.

Who would have thought that a Japanese company called Namco Bandai releasing Puck-Man on May 22, 1980 would become the inspiration for many of the best-known modern game designers.

So take a minute to goof off today. When you do, make sure to celebrate Pac-Man turning the big 3-0.
