Everyone has been talking about Pokemon lately because apparently it’s all the rage on the iMachine. So this Turtleboy went down to the Elm Park with Turtleboy Jr, because Turtleboy is a man of the people, and we saw first hand the effect that this has had. It’s literally causing a zombie apocalypse:
I will say this – at least people are outside, getting exercise, and socializing…..kind of. I have no idea how this game works, nor do I care. Because I’m a grown ass man in his 30’s who simply doesn’t have time to worry about Goddamn Pokemon. I didn’t care about Pokemon when I was younger and I’m not gonna start now because the Internet has lost its mind. Mrs. Turtleboy tried to get me into it today and I stopped caring after 10 seconds when I found out the object was to shoot a non-existent cartoon character with a ball that’s appearing on my cell phone. It’s basically a video game with a little bit of exercise. It really wouldn’t surprise me if Michelle Obama is behind this one. Seems like one of her “make fat kids skinny quick” schemes.
On the down side, we heard a pretty bad accident on Highland Street. When we first heard the crash we were halfway across the park. First thing that came to mind was this warning from the Northbridge Police Department:
The way things looked in that park it was certainly believable that someone wandered into traffic because their iPhone told them to and they thought the Toyota was a Pokemon. But as it turned out some old lady pulled out of the Price Chopper parking lot and hit some poor guy on a motorcycle.
I swear to God at least half the people in Elm Park just sat on their phones and didn’t even seem to notice. Guess killing imaginary Japanese cartoons was more important. Luckily the poor guy was fully conscious, and many people on scene provided help and comfort. We’re praying for him to have a speedy recovery. You gotta watch out for motorcycles people. I do feel bad for the old lady, who clearly meant no one any harm and was visibly shaken up as she sat in her car. Luckily the guy on the motorcycle lives in a city with great hospitals.
