Grabbed by the ghoulies - The Paranoid Android

Grabbed by the ghoulies
Read in my copy of Computing this morning :

UK Developer Rare will soon be releasing a game for the Microsoft Xbox which is a "chaotic beat-'em-up in which you'll assume the role of a character called Cooper who must rescue his girlfriend." The girlfriend has been abducted by ghosts. Reader Richard Grimes has checked with several US friends, who seem to find nothing amusing in the name of the game: Grabbed by The Ghoulies.

I spat coffee all over my screen...

In other news; some guy in work has posed the question "What's in a meme?" I'd never really known what a meme was, even though I thought I knew one when I saw one. It turns out that:
Meme is a virus of the mind
Sounds a bit Matrix-y does it not? For more Matrix sounding information on the meme check out Meme Central.

Current Mood: Amused

Surely I must have a meme then.

So, what's so funny about Grabbed by the Ghoulies??
