|This is Marvin. Ive spent my first few weeks here writing letters to several heads of state trying to get OldManMurray recognized as the official game site of their half-assed third world countries. Exciting as that is, Im not gonna talk about it today. A couple of weeks ago, eriks obsessive ongoing tirade against John Romero culminated in an inappropriate comparison to Archbishop Oscar Romero. Seeing as John Romero is a globetrotting industrialist and therefore too busy to respond himself, and, furthermore, seeing as he is completely unaware of our existence, and also seeing as how his hippie hair makes him look like a defenseless mexican peasant girl, Ive taken it upon myself to create a rebuttal for him in chart format. |
