Parents Angry that "The Game of Life" is Pretty Unrealistic

(Poughkeepsie, NY) Marty and Sheila Westhaven purchased Milton Bradley's "The Game of Life" with the understanding that their children might learn some of the pitfalls that await them in the adult world.

Instead, contend the Westhavens, son Jared and daughter Tara are growing up thinking "life's nothing but wads of cash and fancy cars."

"So Mr. Happy-Pants lands on the 'Lucky Day' space and receives $20,000,"said Marty of his 6-year-old son. "Like, when in the fuck does somebody just wind up getting a lucky 20 grand? I'll tell you when: never. Fucking kid's gonna grow up thinking the world owes him a goddamn 'lucky day.' Ain't no 'lucky days' on this godforsaken planet, kid."

Sheila said that the game gives children "completely unrealistic" expectations of being a grownup.

"Look at the house prices - $200,000 for a Victorian mansion and $40,000 split-level home," she complained. "We can't even touch a dilapidated shack in the middle of the ghetto for less than $300 grand. This kind of starry-eyed bullshit is warping my kids."

The Westhavens want changes made in the Game of Life

Milton Bradley should modify the game to reflect the sorts of life traumas his children will face, said Marty.

"How about adding spaces with a heroin addicted brother-in-law who steals your fucking big screen TV? That's what I'm talking about," he said, eyeing his wife warily as he downed a double shot of scotch. "Or maybe having your happy times wrecked by a two-timing whore of a spouse who has a boyfriend she met in a goddamned Internet chat room? That's life, kids. Ha, ha, friggity ha. Let's play go the Game of Life, shall we, kids?"

HAHA

Yes, all parents buy board games to teach children about life. This guy gives nitwits a bad name.
 
Look at the age of their kids. Why do you want to teach them about crack and all the bad things in life at THAT age?

Why teach them about life in a game.

I agree that these are some stupid people!
 
wow they're pretty fucked up parents. maybe Life isn't supposed to be realistic? the kids are gonna be pretty messed up by the time they're 18.
