Boofuckinghoo, Staten Island

Not sure if you caught this tidbit in the City section of last week's NY Times, but some residents in our favorite borough to hate on are up in arms about the new Grand Theft Auto IV game. It's to be released in October, but already the worst kept secret in all of gaming is how the fictional "Liberty City" in which Niko Bellic reigns hell, so closely resembles New York that it might as well be a google mapping.

"You can carjack a hot rod in DUMBO and zoom down the Manhattan Bridge at 140 miles an hour. If you're short on cash, you can mug a tourist in Times Square or stick up a group of workers on the Red Hook Piers." Algonquin is Manhattan, Broker - duh, Brooklyn. Hell, even Jersey gets a shoutout in the eerily similar Alderney. And where can't a gamer unleash his inner warrior? Why, Staten Island of course.

Apparently, Rockstar Games feels the same way most NYers do about our much forgotten neighboring borough to the south as spokesman Rodney Walker explains that the sprawling space the island warrants has been "explored in other games already."

While loyal SI gamers are upset, local officials are relieved. State Senator Andrew Lanza (R-Staten Island) reveals why his stomping ground was given the oversight: "It's because they know Staten Island is the safest place in the entire city."

Um, right...and there's a Broker Bridge I'd like to sell you Sen. Lanza.

You’re not even from NYC, so blow it out of your ass. You’re like the rest of the herd that moves to NY then starts talking shit like you lived here your whole life; you contribute nothing except a cheap cut n paste blog to get attention. So go back to where you came from. You tourist!!!

I'd expect nothing less from a Conde Nasty 'anon' poster...

(Z does know how to use my ISP tracking software on the 'cut and paste blog')

It's called sarcasm - a concept apparently not taught on your little Island of Eden rubbing up on shore of Jersey.
