Fox News reported that the son of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is peddling a board game titled "Don't Drop the Soap," a prison-themed game he created as part of a class project at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Thought everyone should know about this game.

Don't Drop the Soap -- but why do you bring this up? Do you have something against Governor Kat?

....


Ahhh... now I see it is getting treatment on news wires (via Fark).

It looks like a novelty rather than a game. The designers of these one-punch-line items don't seem to do much research on game mechanisms or markets before trying to enthrall the world with thier cleverness.

The actual AP article headline...

Son of Kan. Governor Creates Boarrd Game



Isn't the abreviation for Kansas, KS? The AP has either really gone downhill or is catering to the lowest common denominator reader.

I hate all these new versions of Cartagena. They don't work so well with the kids, either.

I know I've posted this joke at least three times since 2004 and never have gotten a thumb for it but I'll try to get one here.



The game title "Don't Drop the Soap" was the second choice. The original title ran into trademark infringement issues. The original title was...(ready?)...

[o]The Game of Life: Without Parole.

Or as reported by the Associated Press, The Game of Life: Without Parrole.

According to CBS we're featuring "a game called Prison Bitch." Isn't that like saying Wikipedia is featuring the word sodomy?

See that's what's wrong with the mainstream media- they just don't do any investigative journalism. How many more people would watch their stuff if their headline had been
