…PETA doesn’t like Thanksgiving?

Cooking Mama

PETA never ceases to amaze me.

This year, in protest of Thanksgiving’s annual turkey slaughter, they took the Cooking Mama game and gave it an “unauthorized” twist, as Mama is now the ruthless killer of animals, and you must help her prepare, stuff and cook a bird while extra gore tries to distract you from the task at hand.

Surprisingly, the Flash game is well-done, and serves up a heaping serving of PETA propaganda as you play, though it’s all optional, and you can pick and choose what you want to learn more about, so they’re not jamming the message down your throat.

The turkey used in the game however…

…Fox News shows porn?

Fox News Porn

Fox News has come under fire recently for its continued use of questionable material.

In protest, a site called Fox News Porn was created to collect all of the images that Fox is willing to broadcast and turn them into a porn site.

So how much skin does Fox News show?

So much so that Digg decided to ban the site for violating its TOS that prohibits adult content.

Perhaps things have gotten a little out of hand…

…Some guys don’t like the HJ?

Warning: Depending on your sensitivity, you might consider this video to be extremely offensive (it is called the Hand-Job Protest Song after all), but I also found it to be extremely funny, to the point where I caught myself laughing out loud, so if you choose not to heed my warning, proceed with caution:

…Rockstar Games is a big bully?

Bully

It’s not that Rockstar Games loves controversy, it’s just that they’re getting really good at drumming it up, and it’s always been said that you should do what you’re good at (or something like that). Their latest game, Bully, has managed to create quite a stir, despite the fact that few people actually know what the game is all about, and even fewer have had a chance to get some hands-on time with the game. Parents (and those crazy people who just enjoy protesting things) who felt the game would surely be promoting bullying, thereby increasing the instances of the already childhood scarring pastime, were against it from day one, demanding that stores not carry the game and even going so far as to say the game should never make it to market. At one point, it was even rumored that Rockstar would change the name to “Canis Canem Edit” (Latin for Dog Eat Dog) in response to the protesting. Well, as the game approaches its October 17th release date, it appears that things aren’t always as they appear. The game will still be known as Bully (thank God) and it’s even received a T for Teen rating, indicating that the violence and story line aren’t going to be as bad as everyone made them out to be (because pinching and hair pulling are such violent affairs). Perhaps the most startling news of all might be the fact that this game may actually be AGAINST, rather than for bullying (take that, crazy protesting parents). The following three previews should give you a pretty good idea of what this game will be all about, and once it comes out, I truly hope that many an angry parent gets humbled by the game they thought would be such a degradation to our children’s troublesome childhood experience, yet ended up being a game with a message of hope and change for our future (or something like that).
