Oh, you silly The Onion.
Boys everywhere are tickled with delight this week thanks to the release of the video game Modern Warfare 2. And by "tickled by delight" please feel free to envision obsessive Twilight fans, or crying tween girls in line for Jonas Brothers tickets.
In case you're not familiar with this "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" nonsense, it's only "the most-anticipated (video) game of the year and the sequel to the best-selling first-person action game of all time." (their words) "Modern Warfare 2 continues the gripping and heart-racing action as players face off against a new threat dedicated to bringing the world to the brink of collapse."
Well this was a national obsession gripping more or less half of the population, a trend The Onion couldn't let just slip by unnoticed.
Here's their take on a Modern Warfare "future release".... an ultra-realistic take on military experience.
