Here I was minding my own business and just randomly surfing the net reading about anything that catches my fancy. With so much happening in this country, surfing the web for some lighter reads tends to make life a little less bearable.
Then just when I thought life was getting better, I see this headline in one of the web pages I normally go to read stuff.
ANGRY BIRDS TO FLY INTO CINEMAS!
I was stunned! I was shocked! I was numb! Who in gods name decided to make a movie out of this absolutely mindless game!
I've seen the hype and fuss about this game for a long time now. I'm not the kind who really plays games on my cell phone but I was curious about this Angry birds phenomenon. I mean, every body and his sister was harping about this game. I still wasn't convinced.
But then one day, I finally relented and downloaded the game on the office iPad (I wasn't going to taint my fancy schmancy HTC with this game, mind you) and tried playing it. It took me all of 29.2 seconds (ok, maybe a little longer la) to almost make me want to throw the iPad out the window at the mindlessness of this game.
But I thought I was not being fair so I gave it to wifey to have a try and it took her all of 37.29 seconds (ok la, maybe also a little longer than that) to chuck back the iPad at me and admonish me for making her waste her time! See, I wasn't the only one who though it was a mindless game.
I wonder why people are so hooked on it. It's like an addiction out there. The darn game is NOT at all fun! On a scale of ten, I'd give it a minus 210! The worse thing was, every darned place I went, they were selling an angry bird stuffed toy, key chain, pillow, slippers, toilet bowls ... you get the idea, and it drove me crazy.
And now, I'm tormented by news that they're going to make a movie out of it. Why God? Why? Have I been so awful that I'm being punished to be haunted by this angry bird craze? Why? Why? WHY? The boys are probably going to pester me to take them to watch this god-forsaken movie and I'd rather be fed to bunch of hungry lions or immersed in hot boiling oil than watch this movie!
And just when I thought things were getting better ... siggghhh ...
P.S. If I have offended anyone, my sincerest apologies. The above is just my own personal view and those of you who know me know that I don't sugar coat my words.
