Angry Iowa wants Angry Birds game banned
The Pork of Iowa Group (PIG) has called for the popular smartphone app Angry Birds to be banned in the state for its negative portrayal of pigs.
Wilbur White, president of PIG, claimed that the pillaging behaviour of the swine, coupled with their unappetising green pallor, was damaging people’s perception of the meat.
Speaking at the annual Pork Queen competition, White said the popular smartphone app – available for a range of smartphones including Android and iPhone – could cause real damage to pork farmers who didn’t have large blocks of wood or ice to protect them.
Runner-up at this year’s event, and crowned Iowa Pork Princess 2011, Babe Henderson, also cast doubt on the political leanings of Rovio’s app.
“If you think about it, it’s kinda communist,” said Henderson. “Not only are the birds red, but the pigs are green like money and wearing crowns. I think a more appropriate name would be ‘Kill the capitalist pigs’.”
If PIG’s wishes are granted, this could be the first step in a war of attrition on entertaining online games that relieve countless smartphone users’ journeys on long commutes.
