One mom thinks that video games are the work of the devil, literally. In fact she’s so fixated on this crock of shit, she says her house is the only one in the neighborhood with no video games. “I truly believe that video games were created by Satan to turn otherwise normal children into his drooling, glassy-eyed stooges,” she writes on her blog. “After my son plays them at his friends’ houses, he comes home irritable and testy for the rest of the day.”
What’s funny is she always dreamed of being the “fun mom.” She fantasized that her house would be the one that all the kids congregated at after school. I don’t know where she could get such a ludicrous idea when she bans video games from the house.
Of course she cites the case in Boston where the kid wouldn’t stop playing GTA, so the mom called the cops. She wasn’t surprised by this however.
“On one horrible afternoon that scarred me for life, I even saw a kid walking out of the public library playing a Nintendo DS,” she said. How frightening.
According to her, if Sir Isaac Newton had been playing a DS, he wouldn’t have formulated his theory of gravity.
“What are the kids who play ‘Grand Theft Auto’ learning? How to be carjackers? How to be pursued by police? Those are skills I really want my children to acquire,” she adds.
