This is possibly the funniest gaming news available on the Internet right now. Apparently, a disgruntled set of Spaniards with a gaming blog are sponsoring a mass plastic-shit-o-gram campaign against Sony on behalf of disgrunted gamers who feel persecuted by Sony's European handling. I knew it would only take a few weeks of people talking about their shiny PS3s at home before somebody overseas went postal. You've got to read this!
Sponsor a Poo and send it (with a personal note) to Sony
By the Mayor of Tomelloso and Cubitorah
Are we men or mice?
Are you tired of abuse?
Gamerah has decided to do something about it. We are going to show Sony that in Europe, there is no humiliation without backlash. We are going to show them that we are not an unimportant third-rate market -- a pound of flesh.
Delays, higher prices, sloppy translations, harassment of import stores, and, even worse, cheekiness. What does Gamerah say to all this? Gamerah says: NO! And the way we propose to let the evildoers at Sony know is very simple: by sponsoring plastic poos which we will send to Sony's higher echelons in Spain in one or many boxes.
Imagine: you are angry with Sony since the delay, or since they cancelled your order at Play-asia, or even since the death of Dreamcast, like some resentful Sega fans in our staff. Anyway: your patience has run it's course. What can we all do about? Simple:
1. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your nickname and your comment/complaint to Sony (one line please). Just one grievance per poo, although you can send as many poos as you like.
2. We will reply to you with a bank account number and an identification number.
3. Transfer 4 euro and include the identification number on the transfer email's subject line so we can identify you.
4. We will attach your message to one of the fake excrements and put it, along with your nickname, in the box we will send it to Sony's Spanish headquarters. Of course, we will also include a petition asking them to forward the poos to their bosses in Japan.
Imagine Phil Harrison's face! Hohoho! The rubber band is optional. Just remember: no direct insults or death threats. Be subtle (or pointed), as in these examples.
Some examples of what you might write:
Tonio87: For the HDMi cable.
Pacotazo: For killing Lik-Sang.
Pepoto: For having no typographical criteria.
Niero: For massive damage.
We know you can do it.
