Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die (PUTPBAD for short) is one of the most infamous pieces of self-referential interactive fiction ever. The game only has one location, one object and one puzzle. You start the game in a non-descript town square in a non-descript New England town with no idea who you are or why you're there. A phone booth sits in the centre of the town square, mocking you with its presence. If you pick it up, the game warns you, you'll die.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!
