3-5-09 Cheat Codes for the Apocalypse

Posted by Sean on March 6, 2009

We interrupt your regularly scheduled cat theme to bring you the end of the world.

Are you ready for the end of the world? the seven seals broken, the Four Horsemen abroad in the world, the complete breakdown of society, zombies and mutants and guys who dress like the Gimp from Pulp Fiction running amuck?

Well, the good news is that American Idol will be at least temporarily cancelled. But how will you survive in a post-apocalyptic nightmare world of nightmare with its six foot-long mutant roaches and mohawked mutants whose idea of a gourmet meal is your right thigh?

Well, it seems like super-violent video games, which have gotten such a bad rap of late, are finally getting their due. The Onion reports that games like Fallout 3 are training the children of today to be the dystopian warriors of tomorrow.

Don’t laugh! It could happen! Nostradamus sez so, those two guys who wrote Left Behind sez so, Glenn Beck [1] sez so on the breathless War Room segment of his FOX News show, and now no less an authority than Stephen Colbert sez so, on his even-more-breathless, verging-on-anaphylaxis Doom Bunker!

Not Work Safe, for some brief moments of hot monkey-on-monkey action.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We now return you to a basket full of cute wittle kittens, already in progress.

[1] Does Glenn Beck strike you as a low-rent Rush Limbaugh? Me too.
