Bush Virtual Pet Game Soars in China "In the wake of the downed U.S. spy plane, the Chinese apparently have found a new way to ridicule President George W. Bush - a virtual pet modeled after him" [They need a Palm Pilot to mock Bush?]

[via Palm Nerd] The linked story tells us "Players feed their PortaBush, keep him happy and help him make vital national decisions like whether to bomb teenage singer Britney Spears."

"...but Britney Spears turns out to be a secret communist spy from China who's out to brainwash our children into believing that the common good of all mankind is better than that of one individual; democratic party membership rates skyrocket; deploy all nucl-eu-r arsenal, bomb earth; seek underground shelter with dr. strangelove"

Amazing what these palm developers come up with.

Ah...I had the porta-pet monkey for a while now...but it's gotta come off so I can put porta-bush on ;) Too good to pass by! BTW, I found the link to get the program. Look no further than Eruptor.com. Hope that helps. The article didn't have a link to it.

And for the record, it's made in California ... not China. The Chinese just made it popular.
