Today We Remember Those Who Sacrificed Their Lives So We Could Simulate War From The Comfort of Our Homes
Bro, I’m so glad my ancestors fought for my freedom to play Call of Duty Bro.
On this Monday, May the 25th, we remember those fallen heroes who served and protected their country. On this Memorial Day, we look back on those who gave their lives on the battlefield so we could sit on our couch and play Electronic Arts’ “Battlefield.”
Today, we the people reflect on the countless fallen angels so we can play the first-person shooter game, Halo and it’s counterparts Halo 2 and Halo 3.
Today we take a moment to remind ourselves just how lucky we truly are to live in a country where we are free to “light up fuckin Nazi zombie ass just like our fucking grandparents bro,” as we simulate warfare from the comfort of our air-conditioned home, on our leather couch, in no danger whatsoever.
Happy Memorial Day.
