trivia: For seven years, the goo game had run on a weekly schedule, and so the publication of every hundredth goo was a landmark occasion to be marked by a celebrity of special relevance to the game. However, the goo game switched to a daily schedule in late 2004, and every hundredth goo was no longer a special occasion when it happened times each year. This goo was chosen to be #400 simply for its lack of any difficulty.
