Our friend Jon Christensen over at slashgamer has been promoting tonight’s episode of Penn and Tellers Bullshit. We felt that we should do the same due to the hot button topic of the effects violent video games have on our children. I, like any other gamers, know that violent video games are harmless fun. We grew up with Doom, Mortal Kombat and many other savagely gory games and we turned out just fine. Penn and Teller will be calling out ignorant assholes like the infamous ex-lawyer Jack Thompson who is quoted as saying “Video games are the greatest threat to children since polio“.  Since Thompson is the headline interview, showtime doesn’t want to spoil it, so instead they have provided a clip of Penn and Teller poking fun at another less known activist against violent video games ,Chris Cooney. This shallow, pedantic windbag trys to re-work a fireman’s teaching tool known as the fire triangle, which illustrates that you need 3 components to make fire. He converts it to show that violent games make violent children. Hey, ham, bread and hunger makes a ham sandwhich so this guys theory must be sound, right? Well, you can find out this and more on tonight’s Episode of Penn and Tellers Bullshit. The show airs tonight at 10p.m. EST. Be sure to set your DVR’s.
