Grand Theft Auto IV 0

There has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth amongst certain quarters about Grand Theft Auto IV.

The Mrs. Grundy’s amongst us are concerned that players might learn about sex and violence and drunk driving from the game.

Hell, they can learn about sex and violence and drunk driving on the gossip page.

Not that I’m a fan of the game, but, honestly, grow up.

Those who are concerned that there are hookers in the game should read this story and relax. Kids are ready for what they are ready for when they are ready (emphasis added):

A 13 year old from Texas who stole his Dad’s credit card and ordered two hookers from an escort agency, has today been convicted of fraud and given a three year community order.

Ralph Hardy, a 13 year old from Newark, Texas confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his father’s existing credit card company, and took his friends on a $30,000 spending spree, culminating in playing “Halo” on an Xbox with a couple of hookers in a Texas motel.

The credit card company involved said it was regular practice to send extra credit cards out as long as all security questions are answered.

The escort girls who were released without charge, told the arresting officers something was up when the kids said they would rather play Xbox than get down to business.

A tip of the hat to the person who finds the grammatical errors in the quotation above.

H/T to Second Son (who happens to be playing GTA IV in multiplayer format right now–I can hear the AK-47s) for the link.
