The Land of Misfit Toys

I wonder what starving people in Africa would make of a toy that costs more than their whole village makes in a year.

The Playstation 3 game console will be released this week in North America, to the delight of teenaged boys and grown men who don’t wish to be burdened with a sexual relationship.

In a related story, now we’ll never get him out of our basement, your mother said.

Deprived of male companionship, the continent’s women are expected to spend the coming weekend transforming society into a utopian paradise that will instantly collapse when their boyfriends or husbands come up from the basement in four days for more dip.
I like capitalism, but every so often...

it kills incentive and creates generations of freeloaders.
