The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was: > O great and powerful Oz, can you . . . . What? Wrong chamber? Oh, > sorry. > > O great and powerful Oracle, whose boots I am not fit to lick, I > beseech you, pray answer me this question which has vexed me, lo these > many years.

And in response, thus spake the Oracle: } This is because Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man are getting more than enough } exercise. Did you notice how much they have to run around in every } game? If you would run that many miles every day, you would be also } very lean and fit. } No excrement you say? You never looked inside of one of those game } boxes after a few years ... full of dust! That are the excrements of } Pac-Man.
Notes: I've asked this question three times over a long period of time. I finally decided, when I got the answer above, that it would do and I'd retire the question. But if you didn't like that response, below are the others I received.
First . . .
} What else can he do? He ain't got no arms, or legs, or, } well, anything else. . .
Then . . .
} About my boots... } Darn right you are not fit to lick them. You don't know how } to move fast enough to avoid being kicked in the face. Not } to mention that your saliva burns holes in leather. Yecch. } } About PacMan... } It's his saliva. Same sort of stuff you have, very corrosive. } Turns everything he eats to invisible smoke. Watch next time, } and you'll notice that you can't see it. That's how you can } tell it's invisible.
