Back of the Cereal Box: Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde: Smarter Than You Think
"In a sense, it is. However, Ashley Davis, a blogger over at Destructoid, put a post up last week specifically on the Pac-Man ghosts and why they got the names that they did.

In fact, the way they move is explained by their nicknames." This is brilliant.
