Breakthrough: Peace talks begin to settle bitter longstanding conflict

A Thanksgiving treat to cleanse the palate as you contemplate your third helping of turkey. No, the conflict here isn’t between North and South Korea or Israel and Palestine (although the makers of the vid are indeed Israeli). Those disputes will have long since been settled by the time this one is finally over. As for why, precisely, talks broke down at the end here, analysts disagree. But consensus is beginning to form around a single culprit: Obama.

Fair warning: If you don’t own an iPhone or Droid, this entire joke might be lost on you. If you do own an iPhone or Droid and it’s lost on you anyway, then what on earth do you do to pass the time? Mild content warning.

I’d love to hear an explanation of that game, and why pigs and birds are in it.

Interesting, because the setup here sure seems to be the Birds as Palestinians, and the pigs as Israelis.

Obama’s term began with comedians being unable to connect his highness with anything comedic. His term will end in a cloud of flash based video games.

Yep. Lost on me. I refuse to even learn how to text.

Heh, i have the free version, still refuse to pay for apps.

clearbluesky on November 25, 2010 at 5:36 PM

LOL Awesome. I’m glad I had Thanksgiving off because I was finally able to finish the game. w00t

I don’t have one of those phones and I don’t text but I have three children that do. Will I understand or just not waste my time.

Okay, here we go:

Angry Birds is a game on the iPhone.

The evil piggies took the birds’ eggs. So, understandably, the birds are, well, angry.

In the game, you use a massive slingshot to send the birds headlong into structures containing the piggies, in order to destroy them and regain custody of the egglettes.

There are multiple types:
1) Normal red birds — your typical workhorse
2) The yellow birds — with a secondary tap on the screen, these feisty birds accelerate to inflict more damage.
3) Cluster Birds — with a secondary tap, the one bird breaks into three tinier birds. Great for spray shots.
4) Bomb birds — ’nuff said.

Once you defeat the piggies, you get your eggs back.

The piggies are soooo evil

Texting is relative to the user. It’s quite often very convenient to send an important message without the phone call, or if you are unable to make one

and I suppose it has a better purpose!:)

Ha, just got a new phone that runs Droid. I think I just found the first game to load…

Thanks!

Happy T Day everyone!

I do not understand the relation to the pic…

What does Austin Powers have to do with any of this ?

cableguy615 on November 25, 2010 at 6:44 PM

Tried the game, and I don’t get the mass appeal. There have been flash games just like it around for years, just castle/trebuchet oriented.

MadisonConservative on November 25, 2010 at 7:11 PM

The thing I didn’t like about the Angry Birds is that oftentimes I’d be completely stumped and then I’d win seemingly at random without any idea of what I’d done to deserve it.

Doodle Jump, now there’s a game I could get stuck into.

And, if like me, one often knows/sees women in their mid 20s to early 30s, one must learn to text … or be seen as the dinosaur he probably is. ✪

It goes too far with the young ones, and even with the 40-something women.

I was at dinner once with 7 other people. Dead serious when I say that at one point, EVERYONE but me was texting at the table. It was quiet. I said “Okay I’ll talk to myself.”

Thank God I had two beers in my hands. It was getting lonely.

True, the younger ones quite often are lacking in the etiquette department, but they offer, well, some other, shall we say, qualities. ✪

The App Store has just officiated Angry Birds as reaching more than 10 million purchases.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Tzetzes on November 25, 2010 at 8:41 PM

Wow, *10 million* paid downloads.

When they started making the slingshot out of the curtain, I lost it.

STOOPID.

I laughed my buttocks off when I first saw this a couple of days ago. Bwahahahahahahah!

So AP, that’s why you are the way you are. Thanks for clearing that up.

I don’t play games on phones…or computers.

‘Recreation’ requires time AWAY from these things.

landlines on November 26, 2010 at 11:48 AM

What does a picture of Austin Powers on the home page of this thread have to do with anything? ROFL!!!

I own neither, so I guess I’m one of the lost souls.

capejasmine on November 26, 2010 at 11:48 AM

Love Angry Birds!! My son and husband are addicted and have to fight them off my iTouch. I agree…there will never be peace!!
