Ok. And the homophobic "gamer's" pad is funny, why?

Because gamers overuse the word "fag" to a spectacular degree.

It is funny. Yes, the minor league homophobia is wrong -- but given what it's spoofing, that's exactly correct.

Visit the gamespot/gamefaqs boards, play some eq/wow/coh/daoc. (If you need to ask what the last set of acronyms are, you shouldn't have asked the question in the first place LOLZERZEZ!)

Yeah, miss lynnster, the product is making fun of the homophobia that is the current trend in online gaming.

No "omg hax" button?

If I remember correctly from my CS days, whoshotwho, it's actually "wtf h4x".

Sorry, that was incredibly snippy of me. For the second time today, I refer to Penny Arcade to explain something for me.

Bah, check the copyright. That's so 2004.

Oh, and the backspace key should read simply: "MY BAD". Lousy inferior English design.

Miss Lynnster : Uh, it's clearly a spoof of the often idiotic dialogue present in most online game chat and message boards. I think it's funny, and I'm a certified cock-sucker.

Meh. It still sucks, 'cause all the buttons on the numberpad are too small.
A smart person also has to figure out how to work this into footpads without making things too complicated. I mean, as long as you're using a game controller for killshots, you're not really going to use a keyboard for anything, really. Except maybe for hitting, or talking about stuff. But I'm still sure you could use your feet for that. You don't have to see my living room carpet to know what I'm talking about.

.....so I'm not the only one who 'breaks' and 'tippytoes' and kicks things with my feet while I'm playing then?

I like this notice at the bottom of the page:

"Note I left the @ key out of the design meaning that these fuckers can never e-mail me ever again."
