Sad news, our very own homegrown Älphämönkëy is leaving Penny Arcade to further his career as a cage fighter. Having finally achieved his dream of beating Mike "Killa F" Fehlauer in the notoriously brutal Penny ArCageFighting tournament, Erik "Car Wolf" Karulf will be moving on to brighter fields to achieve his lifelong ambition of building a platinum skull laser on the moon. Erik first started working with Penny Arcade the same day I did, as a wet behind the ears moderator whose head was still soft, and I was lucky to be able to work with him as he grew into the unstoppable iron behemoth that he is today. It's going to suck not hanging out with him on the rare occasions when I'm in the office, but I'm sure he'll still be around the forums every now and then to make sure I'm not completely wrecking the fucking joint.
