Listen, I know it’s not funny that the current state of the world is forcing companies to declare bankruptcy, and that our kids might grow up without all of the wonders of the world that we did, blah blah blah, but that doesn’t mean humor isn’t still one of the best ways to cope.

A fact you’ll surely agree with me on after reading through these 15 hilarious reactions to people learning that Chuck E. Cheese, childhood staple and bane of parents everywhere, is struggling financially.

15. Just reminiscing about the good old days.

I mean, they weren’t great but they were better than this.

14. When you think about it that way, maybe this is for the best.

I mean. Who thought this branding was great?

13. It would be nice if we could be sure there were better days ahead.

Something tells me that’s just not true, though.


12. Perhaps this is truly when things went downhill.

Although kids love all “monies” it doesn’t matter the color.

11. Only $1? I thought it would be more, because no one eats the salad bar.

Salad bars are gross at the BEST of places, y’all.

10. Back in the 80s we ate creepy characters for breakfast.

This new rat looks too nice. He’s probably hiding something.

9. We reap what we sow, people.

But I mean, I think it’s clear Chuck E. Cheese doesn’t have a bangup marketing team.

8. Everyone already assumes it’s full of germs so there’s that.

He’s just saving America, one disgusting business at a time.

7. 2020 is determined to take it all away.

They can’t have Betty White. They just can’t.


6. They just might be the currency of our impending dystopia.

I mean, you never know.


5. No one in their right mind over the age of 11, anyway.

Which is maybe redundant?

4. This animatronic band was terrifying.

And also it plays at a local bowling alley so come to Kansas City.

3. Now there’s a rat-owned business I could get behind!

I’ll take the specialty, please.

2. American rats are always looking for handouts.

It’s sort of pathetic looking, isn’t it.

1. There’s nowhere to go but up.

I’m sure there will some day be another restaurant looking for a rat representative. Ahem.

Listen, I hate Chuck E. Cheese (although the addition of alcohol lessons my ire), but I still hope they pull through and I can teach my kids to play skeeball.

Parenting is one big contradiction after another, isn’t it?
