By now we normally ignore whatever Jack Thompson says, but since this is also a chance to advertise Penn & Teller's Bullshit! we will jump right on the chance, thank you very much. If you're unfamilar with the show, it's five parts hilarious, five parts social commentary and five parts awesome -- unless you're strongly against Libertarian views. Basically, Penn and his silent cohort Teller go around debunking psuedoscientific ideas and stupid misconceptions. Gaming being evil falls in the latter category and most likely is the subject of the show that Jack Thompson will be featured on.
But enough of the facts! Let's get to the juicy quote that Jack drops in the commercial below for the upcoming seventh season of Bullshit!. Speaking to the camera, Thompson proudly proclaims that "Grand Theft Auto is the worst assault on children since polio."
That sunk in yet? Give it a second.
Good. Now go catch up on all the seasons of Bullshit! that you missed, because I know you haven't all been watching.
