Het is kerst! De enigszins verplichte feestdagen waarbij je gezellig ‘moet’ doen met familie terwijl je liever helemaal niets doet en achter je game-console kruipt om je te verstoppen van die te knuffelige tante. Ook wij vieren kerst met onze dierbaren en willen jullie allemaal hele fijne kerstdagen wensen met veel liefde, lekker eten en game-waardige cadeautjes!!
Om dit niet een vrij standaard bericht te laten zijn heb ik een gedicht gevonden die ik graag met jullie wil delen. Ik heb het niet zelf geschreven! Hij is afkomstig van Tony “ChaingunPope” Wilson, enjoy the reading.
Twas the night before Christmas, and all over the site
The gamers were playing with all of their might.
The controllers were charging by the TV with care
In hopes that soon after they could play some multiplayer.
The children were sleeping in the room down the hall
So daddy can play M-rated games and answer duty’s call.
And momma was on Facebook, and I on the tube
Wielding a rocket launcher, powning many noobs.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I leaped from my seat and nearly emptied my bladder.
Away to the window I ran like Sonic
(Before his jump to 3D – those games are toxic!).
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Shone brightly over my garden gnomes and cast a shadow
Over – who do you think? Was it old Saint Nick?
Nope, it was some hobo going through my garbage – sick!
Then the hobo ran away as a new object approached
A sleigh with reindeer, pulling a red coach.
It flew like Valkyrie missiles from a seven kill streak
And then the driver shouted, as I heard him speak,
“On Mario! On Luigi! On Ghost and PacMan!
On Cloud! On Aerith! On Wiley and Megaman!
We’ve got presents to deliver, let’s make this fast!
We’ve got the whole earth to reach, move your ass!”
As a pilot in Warhawk makes his move in the skies,
So the sleigh to my rooftop in a moment did fly.
Up there they landed, presents and all.
I scratched my head in wonder, then I also scratched my balls.
And then in a twinkling, I heard from my ears
The driver yelling “Stay here!” to his many reindeer.
I heard them all sigh, and one of them winnied,
Then the driver somehow climbed down through my chimney.
His was dressed in all fur, with spots like a cheetah
Wearing pure leather gloves (Take that, PETA!).
He had a Gamestop bag hanging over his back.
He smiled and reached into his gaming sack.
He handed me a package, containing who knew what
Then handed me a gift certificate for Pizza Hut.
I opened the box and exclaimed with glee
Inside was a brand new Playstation 3!
Then I looked at the gift card and up at the man.
“Pizza and gaming” he said, “go hand in hand.”
I smiled and took a swing of my Coke Zero,
Then the man dropped a smoke bomb like good old Ezio.
When the smoke cleared, then man was gone.
I looked down at my new console – time for some fun!
I booted it up and popped in Uncharted
And overheard the man as his sleigh departed.
And I heard him say as he drove out of site,
“Merry Christmas to all! Have a great gamernight!”
