Explaining the joke. by Vaughn Smith

Back in the day, it was rumored that Saddam Hussein had imported 4000 PS2's to use for bomb-making and other terrorist devices. Apparently Saddam believed it when George Lucas said the PS2 should be classified as a "Super Computer" back in 2000. After all of my experience with the PS2 and it's rampant DREing (Disc Read Errors) I couldn't imagine an evil tyrant trying to utilize these faulty gaming systems to do anything constructive - evil or otherwise.

Then I came up with the idea that maybe he didn't want them for evil...maybe he just wanted to assure himself that if he imported some insane amount of PS2 systems, maybe he'd finally get one that works! And that was my punchline. All the better that he said it on national TV, instantly PWNing the cocky PS2.

Using a clip from the Naked News was my way of illustrating that the news and media had just become a mockery. I'm not knocking the Naked News, but is there ever a topic that would require the female newscasters keeping their clothes on? Did they take it all off when reporting on 9/11? How about news of a rapist? Actually I wish all news could be read by beautiful women removing their clothes and I'm honestly just annoyed that I didn't come up with the idea.

Things to note:

  • Feeling a need to "educate" as well as "entertainment", forming that delicious hybrid called "Edu-tainment", I included the origin for the over-used putdown word "PWNed". You'll most likely have to click on the strip to enlarge it, so you can read it.
  • The question the PS2 asks, " there anything better than the Naked News?" is rhetorical. Of course there isn't.
