Podcast: Trigames.NET Podcast Episode 71 - For Me To Poop On [Written 2007-11-19]
So I'm walking down the street and I see a large launch line for some game, hardware, or whatnot.
Then I see three big honking news cameras from national news networks paying attention to the guy at the front of the line in the Master Chef helmet - was that Chief or Chef? - asking him what it's like standing in front of a line and what it's been like standing there for four days in that helmet without taking a shower or grabbing a bite to eat or taking a swig of any beverage in the freezing cold waiting for some videogame that is probably going to be in ample supply for the next ten decades. How the FUCK do you think he feels? Cold, hungry, thirsty and smelly, you stupid fucktards!
His answer, of course, is muffled by the Master Chef - Chief? - helmet as the news cameras zoom in and the interviewers nod and smile while thinking in the back of their heads that something must be wrong with this strange person sitting at the front of the line for days on end just to get something that'll be there for eternity.
After taking in the moment, I throw my Mountain Dew at Master Chump's face and run like the dickens.
Then I download Episode 71 of the Trigames.NET Podcast and listen to how much better these four guys are than me, you, and the rest of the world, as they discuss the phenomenon of the media sensationalizing people standing in line for helmets covered in Mountain Doo. Love it or hate it, they rule Earth. So listen up, or be left behind!
