Surgeon General's Warning?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

quote:

You know if he (the college student sueing game companies) wins, we'll either end up having warnings on game boxes

According to the april issue of Computer Games Magazine, the Surgeon General wants to put warnings on computer games. They thought this was sooooo funny that they had to publicly mock it in there magazine. They came up with this mock warning. Here it is word for word:

quote:

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Use of this product may cause aggressive behavior in children. Exessive use has been linked to repetitive stress injuries, a need to create acronyms from common game-related terms,sleep deprivation, a loss of interest in intrapersonal "real world" relationships, blurred vision, pointless substitution of the letter "z" for "s", hunched shoulders, an irrational desire to engage in endless debates over
Quake
and
Unreal
, lowered metabolism, increased Mountain Dew conumption, and weieght gain in infants and adults. Quitting gaming now greatly reduces serious risks to your health andgreatly increases your attractiveness to potential partners.

LOL

koodos to the to Steve Bauman at CGM for writing such a great article.

If it was in Australia I would say the Surgeon General would be idiotic enough to put that Label on as is without any revisions.
