Portal Companion [Ice] Cubes Will Never Threaten to Stab You

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the last five years in a hazy stupor of depression after incinerating your closest (and only) friend in Valve’s puzzle video game, Portal (if you don’t know what that is, check out this pumpkin turret as a refresher). You, like thousands of others, savored that seventeenth of test chambers, quickly growing to love your Weighted Companion Cube, with its pink heart faces and its…weight. But you would learn too late that the Companion Cube had a powerful kryptonite: its one weakness was incineration. And you had to be the one to do it.

I get it. You’ve suffered pain. We all have. But rest easy, friends, because just in time for the holiday season, the Companion Cube has made its chill comeback as an ice cube…via this tray from ThinkGeek.

I stil can’t decide if this is fitting or ironic. After all, ice cubes are way more susceptible to incineration than whatever the Companion Cube was made out of before. Fortunately, if one melts, you can make another one without having to wait four years for a sequel.

While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
