Chillingo, publishers of the mega-hit iphone/ipad game Angry Birds are please to announce the follow-up Angry Kurds, which according to their website is a "cheerful trivialisation" of the well-known ethnic conflict over a seperate Kurdish nation.
Responding to allegations that Angry Birds was "vacuous" and without intellectual merit, the new game addresses these concerns by deftly weaving the dense political narrative of the Kurdish irredentist movement over 80 fun-filled and colorful levels in which little funny fat men with big dark moustaches and fezs throw deadly pots of traditional Kurdish buffalo yoghurt at turban wearing Iranians, Turks and Syrians.
"Look I know the hats may not be ethnically accurate" said a Chillingo spokesman, "but everyone knows that someone in that area wears fezs and turbans and they look pretty funny too. I mean in the Angry Birds game we had the pigs wearing cowboy hats at one point. That's not exactly reflective of real life either is it? But no one was offended by that."
