President of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan Outraged by Cain Comments

Today the President of the Republic of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan, Whoza Whatsa, voiced his anger at certain comments by Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain.

"I believe I speak for my people when I say that we are shocked by the insensitivity of this man, and our sincere hope is that he is not even allowed to take a vacation in Europe, what with his limited views."

Of note, President Whatsa has expressed his support of creating jobs in the United States, through diplomatic relations with President Obama. "We will do whatever we can to aid our overseas neighbors, only with the promise that Mr. Cain return to his pizza business, and no longer aspire to become President. Clearly his ingredients for a better America are as much a failure as the ingredients for his pizzas."

Whatsa did cite one positive thing to come out of his knowledge of Herman Cain. "We are now using his campaign ad in our schools to show our children the horrors of smoking."

Google Plus Users Obsessed With "Plussing" and Sharing Posts

A recent study shows that both regular and new users of Google Plus, the new social network, are developing seemingly unhealthy obsessions with "plussing" - adding a "+1" indicating they favor a certain post - and sharing posts with the public. 

This conclusion was based on data compiled by an independent study conducted by an independent research team in Independence, Missouri. "The behavior exhibited suggests two possibilities," says head researcher Xander Harris. "One, Google Plus is secretly planting subliminal messages in their users' heads, or two - these poor schmucks have nothing better to do."

One example of this growing phenomenon occurred Monday when a photoshopped image of a mountain lion running from Lady Gaga went viral in under five minutes, with 500 pluses and 1000 shares. This photo beat the current record holder of celebrity Ashton Kutcher's post of his favorite trees, which garnered over 800 pluses and shares by fans.

"Clearly this sort of behavior should be monitored and investigated," Mr. Harris concluded. "No one wants Google Plus to go the way of Facebook and Twitter, but this inanity shows no signs of going away..."

In related news, a recent poll suggests that people are freakin' tired of tech bloggers comparing Google Plus to Facebook...

Obama Announces End Of Iraq War, GOP Says Harold Camping Was Right


Today President Barack Obama announced the end of the war in Iraq, and pledged to bring back all American troops by the end of this year.

This news sent a wave of fear through the GOP. "This kind of thing was not expected to happen this soon, and if we had our way, not at all," Speaker of the House John Boehner said. "It's a travesty of justice, in that it's our version of justice, and of course, the Obama administration is a travesty."

The recent news, and protests such as Occupy Wall Street, have threatened the very fiber of our nation, claims the GOP. "If you do the math, 1% is really a big number, since none of us can count higher."

Republicans have voiced astonishment at the prediction of the end of the world today by radio evangelist Harold Camping. "As far as we're concerned, he was right! Who knew?"

In related news, both Dick Cheney and George W. Bush have taken credit for the end of the Iraq War. "You're welcome," they stated in an interview this afternoon.

Makers of "Modern Warfare 3" Ask: What War Should Be Glamorized Next?

After the immense success of the Call of Duty series, developer Infinity Ward announced recently that they are running out of wars to glamorize.  "We've done World War II to death, Afghanistan, Iraq, even Vietnam.  We now ask our fans to send us feedback on what war they want glamorized next.  We would also like to explain that our titles don't necessarily glamorize war, but that we just stated that because it will keep parent groups off of our backs."

E-mails with suggestions have flooded Infinity Ward since the announcement, most of which consist of phrases such as "I like to blow up stuff" and "kill 'em all".  One gamer writes, "just gimme a game where I can blow shit up and shoot people, I don't care who they are.  I'm not picky."

Infinity Ward has also reported that should gamers fail to come up with a conflict soon, plans are underway for titles such as "Call of Duty: Mall Cop" and "Call of Duty: Hall Monitor". 

Activision Promises Next Spider-Man Game Won't Suck

Today Activision announced plans to team with long-time developer Beenox to create, quote, "a Spider-Man game that will not suck".   End quote.  Their goal is to create a game with more interesting characters, polished controls, and a total lack of nauseatingly repetitive tasks.

"We really have learned our lesson after Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Ultimate Spider-Man, Spider-Man 3, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and Spider-Man: Edge of Time.  Really.  No, really," said Activision CEO Stanley Excelsior.  "We promise to deliver a product worthy of the popular Marvel character, or our name isn't Activision."

Strangely enough, it has been discovered that, in fact, Activision is not the name of the video game publisher.  The publisher formerly known as Activision had no comment to the discovery, only to clarify that the recently released Edge of Time is not the game that introduces the new direction.  "No, the next one will be great, but yeah, Edge of Time sucks..."

Report Says Half of U.K. Plays Video Games, Other Half Has Lives

A recent report has found that roughly 62 million of the population in the United Kingdom actively play video games.  But curiously, the other half are reported to actually have lives.  Analysts suggest that this is a temporary anomaly, but forecast a possible crisis.

"The data shows that people residing in the U.K. still don't have way too much time on their hands and/or are getting out more," explains Jack Union, who filed the report.  "People are active, actually connecting with their families, and even holding down jobs, but I feel this is just a symptom of a growing virus among the populace."

Prime Minister David Cameron issued a directive this week focusing on the phenomenon.  "It's disheartening to say the least," he said, "and really awe-inspiring, terrifying, earth shaking, gut wrenching, bloody awful, disturbing, and horrendous, to say the most..."

Many education directors have instigated plans to include tutorials on the proper use of many consoles and console games, as well as smartphone games in the curriculum.  "We must not let this news deter our children from growing up to be well adjusted citizens who sit on their couches all day fragging their friends on Halo".

"Rise of Nightmares" Failure Due To Fact It Sucked, Sega Says

"Rise of Nightmares", the latest entry in the Xbox 360 Kinect library, failed miserably with gamers and critics alike.  Sega, the distributor of the game, offers a few reasons why the game was unsuccessful.

"The failure of 'Rise of Nightmares' can mostly be attributed to the fact that, put simply, it sucked," says a Sega representative.  "A key component to any game's success is that it doesn't suck, and I believe that was this game's downfall.  Also, poor sales and reviews could also be a factor.  But that hasn't been confirmed yet.  We're still looking into it."

The Xbox 360 Kinect has experienced a slew of problems, least of which is the poor assortment of titles such as "Rise of Nightmares".  A Kinect representative says that this is only temporary, and soon the revolutionary gaming system will be obsolete, much like the Sony Playstation Move and the Nintendo Wii.
"At least, that is our hope, and I believe, gamers as well."

The Sega representative would also like to add that poor sales, scathing reviews, and general hatred of "Rise of Nightmares" might reflect negatively on the game company.  "But I assure you that we are all about consistency, so expect future titles to deliver the same experience of "Rise of Nightmares".

In related news, Nintendo is recalling all 3DS handheld consoles not because of any hardware problems.  "We just want to restore gamers faith in us..."

I Don't Wanna Know

I don't wanna know what you ate this morning
Could do without the personal shares
Some things should be kept to yourself
And c'mon, who really cares?

You're going out for the evening?
And you're posting a map online?
Hope you enjoy the movie
And that your security is fine.

I don't wanna know if you and your boyfriend had a spat
Or if you had a birthday party for your cat
Those kinds of things I can't help you with
But they do have counselors for that.

Please spare me the details of your bodily functions
Can't imagine why
You would want anyone to know
Please, people, TMI.

And if you joined a social network
Just to be a troll
Please let me show you the door
Because I really don't wanna know...
