    I used to play Mario Party with my flatmates and their kids all the time. It was hilarious how serious the 'adults' took this game.
    It was much like how serious some people take fighting games, but even more absurd as less skill and more random chance is involved.

    Also, palm rotators deserve everything they got. It doesn't even make you any faster, just makes you look even more ridiculous.

    Not surprising. I'd like to rail on the UK and their over-sensitivity, but that could have happened anywhere. In the states being spastic just means being hyper-active, so whatever.

    I remember reading an article that the UK censored the term "mong" in a movie.

    Funny how European countries are so over-sensitive for a bunch of things, no wonder their artists do a lot of controversial stuff.
