Angry Birds is the world’s stupidest, most amazingly addictive wonderful puzzle-type physics game. I have it on my Verizon iPhone.
I also have this bit of Finnish fluff on my Playstation, because I am an idiot — it’s not nearly as much fun if you can’t touch the screen. But I couldn’t say no because I have an adorable obsessed 4-year-old. No, my kid is not an anti-social screenbot — yet. But my spawn and millions of other morons like you and me who like cheap 99 cent thrills, are how Rovio, the company behind Angry Birds, rasied 42 million smackers this month. And that’s not chicken feed.
But I’ve noticed some people feel passionately about the birds. About the ones they like and the ones they get peeved at. Each bird has its own personality and unique abilities. The bomb bird, the boomerang bird, the white bird whose eggs don’t seem to do s*t, the blue breaks in three birds, etc.
The question is, which is the dumbest? Which bird would you happily kick to the curb?
Take the poll and let us know! By the way and FYI none of the birds have fancy names. The names are just the colors. And yes, I want all the Angry Birds plush toys. Although I see boomerang bird has no toy as of yet… the world waits and wonders.
Enough! To the polls!
