Paperboy's a great game with some of the best music in the history of the world. Someone should sample the music from Paperboy and include it in some kind of filthy rap song or something. But enough about that. Let's talk about this. It's some dudes presenting a pretty good bit called "Paperboy in Real Life."
  
  
Great job!

Best part:
"Roger, you are not going to throw my good tire at that boy."
"Get in the gawd damn house ya whore."
 
Loved it.  I was terrible at that game.

That was not funny at all. I kept waiting for some kind of punchline but it never came. Poorly acted and even poorly presented.

Thats too funny.  I like he said "Go in the house you whore"....and his wife just turns around and does nothing.  It would be funny in the directors cut the wife ends up fucking the neighbor.

That was great, I forgotten about all the stupid stuff the game would throw at you to make you crash.

Kinda funny. I laughed more at the little Tim and Eric reference that Jeff threw in at the end of the article.

Mega 64 did it much better as far as making me laugh goes.

That was fantastic, loved it. The idea of an irate man coming up with all of the various Paperboy obstacles is genius. It helps the game actually make some sense!

Why do the residents have horrible British accents that come and go? Is there a punchline to this bit? I couldn't find it.

I loved me some Paperboy back in the day.
Pro-Tip: The Sega Master System version of the game was far superior to the NES version.  (Unfortunately this is one of the rare instances that SMS wins, with Double Dragon being the other.)
Only the arcade was better.

It was better if nothing else because that guy had no fucking clue as to what was going on at freaking 4 am, in the  dark deliverying papers.  He soo had to ask himself if he was dreaming, or maybe he needed to lay off his drug of choice.

I loved his multiple accents, makes it 15 times better IMO.
 
I hate arcade Paperboy music, NES soundtrack was much better. No freakin' cowbell.
