Pop psychology, in fun-for-the-whole-family game form. Based on her nationally syndicated radio show, this fast-paced board game has players matching wits with the doctor, responding to some of her 600 real, phone-in dilemmas. This amazon outlet deal features Nag, Preach, and Teach cards, and a scary looking box. You know your fifteen minutes are up when you hit the amazon outlet rack.

Wow, that looks like "Dr. Laura's Ego Trip."
And that is a really weird box. But OOglies Splash looks neat.

I've almost come to blows with friends over Pictionary. This might end in murder.

Okay, a friend of mine who works at Amazon bought one of these for each of a number of our gay friends--he's evil, and they all have keen senses of wicked irony. (One person expressed irritation that Dr. Laura actually made money off the gift until we told him that the game had been dropped in price from around $30 to $4.) One of those friends lives right downstairs from my girlfriend and I, so two weeks ago, we got loaded and played it for a while.

What we were expecting of course, was something really staggeringly bad, so-bad-it's-fun bad. But no. It was just bad. Each round one person has to "be" Dr. Laura, and the other players basically vote on who did the "best" job. That's it. Over and over. It was like the scene in A Clockwork Orange, but instead of forcefeeding you violent imagery, they'd slowly suck all the fun out of your body.
