A Current Affair, the butt of the joke again

So I just finished watching an EXTREMELY SHOCKING report that EVERY PARENT SHOULD SEE on that bastion of journalistic integrity, A Current Affair, and thought it deserved a mention here.

If you can be bothered, you can watch the report here:

Computer game outrage
Computer game outrage

But basically the gist of it is this:

  • Young boy goes to school.

  • Young boy's mate shows him a slightly rude Flash game on the internet in the computer labs at lunch.

  • Both boys think they, and it, are mutually hilarious.

  • Boy goes home, gets on internet, plays hilarious game again.

  • Boy's mother freaks the fuck out, calls A Current Affair.

Of course there's much gnashing of teeth and hysterical cries of "CHILD PORNOGRAPHY" and "OUR YOUNG MINDS ARE BEING CORRUPTED" and "HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN AT A SCHOOL?" etc. etc. and calls to hang the Principal up by the bollocks and all that sort of thing.

So what exactly is this X RATED GAME that's caused such an uproar to warrant a five minute report on national television?

Well, it's called Butt Hunter, and it's a cartoonish shoot-em-up game in which you roam a forest shooting naked men hiding in the bushes (which, strangely enough, is an activity most ACA watchers would usually support). Obviously this already sounds SERIOUS enough, but wait: If you miss one, and they catch you, they give you a good old rogering, cartoon style.


My favourite part of the ACA "report" was when they showed a blurred-out screen grab from the game, and said ominously: "The animation of this CRIMINAL ACT is SO SICKENINGLY GRAPHIC we could never show you in this story. The main objective? PREYING ON LITTLE BOYS."

Fortunately here in the BC I'm not bound by such censorship, and I CAN show you:

Actual size.

What's that? Whaddya MEAN you coudn't see the X RATED, FULLY HARDCORE PORNOGRAPHIC ACTION? Try this:

Pixelated porno.

Onya ACA. Even with the advantages of full colour and fluid movement this game is about as sexually explicit as Leisure Suit Larry.

Wait until some schoolkid logs on to Two Girls One Cup, ACA will dedicate their entire show to it. We hope.


  1. Oh crumbs. Wouldn't it be nice to see some kind of outrage over the fact that there's a game whose objective it is is to shoot bum bandits?

    Fuck you ACA. Fuck you.

  2. hey Petstarr, have you seen that paroday of '2 girls' by John Mayer?


  3. I suppose I'm one of those people who just has to know what you're on about when you mentioned, Two Girls One Cup.

    Well, at least i won't have to watch what i eat again, considering it won't be anything for a long time...

    Worst video ever haha, i recommend everyone watches it ! ha.

  4. "logs onto" TGOC?

    I see what you did there.
    And I think it's righteous funny.

  5. I watched Two Girls One Cup about two weeks ago after reading about it on here.

    I am still scarred and dont think I will every fully recover. It will haunt me for the rest of my life.

  6. Oh, the ironicality!

    I followed your link to the ACA story and what was I bombarded with? Links to stories with headlines like Paris Hilton's Bath Tape; Britney's Virginity Lie; and Britney's Sex Scandal.

    I hope ninemsn content is blocked at Cooktown State School. Our kids might easily get hold of this.

  7. Lol, I used to have a link to this game on another blog I use, except I always called it 'The Deliverance Game' after that famous "Squeal like a pig, boy!" scene from the movie Deliverance (of course! lol)

  8. Took Filicity's advice and found TGOC. Yes, it is indeed stomach turning. However I'm willing to bet that some sort of enema-like apparatus and chocolate mousse was used in the making of this film.

  9. Haha, no way am i watching two girls one cup...I have a weak stomach,anyway.
