Last weekend, I played through a computer game called The Secrets of Monkey Island. *Spoiler alert* At one point during the game, the protagonist said something like, "There's something I learned from all this - never pay more than twenty bucks for a computer game." *End spoiler * I thought that was pretty funny, but I've never seen anything like that when reading a novel. So, I wonder if being cheesy in a book would work, if it's obvious that you're doing it on purpose? I'm interested in hearing everyone's thoughts. Many thanks.
