Madden NFL 09 is totally redneck sh*t, according to copy found in Wal-Mart

The above image is the sight that greeted one young boy as he opened the first game purchased for his brand new Xbox 360. Having bought the system and game with his own Christmas money, the lad eagerly expected to be playing Madden NFL 09, before being faced with the grisly truth -- he'd actually bought some redneck sh*t.

"When he opened the game all I heard was 'WHAT IS THIS' and he ran to me and showed me the game and to my surprise this is what I saw," explains Michael, the father of the boy. "I immediately called Walmart and asked for a manager and explained to her what we found. She asked if it was sealed and I told her yes with the security stickers and everything.

"... After closer inspection of the plastic that was wrapped around the game case I found scotch tape. I can only assume that someone purchased this game swapped the disk then returned it to Wal-Mart."

He called the Wal-Mart manager and seemed to have everything resolved, with a likely replacement lined up. At least we all have a brand new idea for something to do on a boring weekend.
