Dos or pc game that insults you back/Yo Mamma jokes

Programmes like this certainly existed back in the day -- you can find some on shovelware CDs like those at cd.textfiles.com -- but I cannot tell anything more specific.

We do not usually delete registered users' accounts, is there a specific reason you'd want that to be done?

Who was William Soleau?

Ancient DOS Games made a video about the company, might contain some interesting bits (or not, I can't be bothered to watch it now): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifq9QXH_-Os I remember reading somewhere that William Souleau started his career as a ballet dancer before becoming software developer....

PC 1997-2005 snowball puzzle game

I was a kinda snowball rolling puzzle game. The main character was a girl with Green Hair and she had to roll the snowballs in in specific way to form different sizes with the goal of building a snowman at the end. That doesn't match any typical gameplay profile known to me. I quickly Googled "...

DOS Chess games package

Depending on the peculiarities, of a particular programme, you might get better performance if you use fixed or capped cycles, and/or the dynamic core.

I was just looking through the advergames list myself and stumbled upon a game that looks like it could match the OP's description:

I looked up a gameplay video and indeed the dog jumps into a bag of chips at the end of a level.
