The Evil Within is totally disrespectful to barbed wire, you guys


The video's parodical, but what if people were actually offended?
Apr 16
The Evil Within looks like it has the potential to make me giggle with devilish glee, so I really hope it doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately, I have to take issue with its negative portrayal of barbed wire. Luckily, The Onion... read
