The Misadventure in Iraq as a Text Adventure.

Defective Yeti sat down and wrote up what the time line to the Iraq war might be like if it were a text adventure computer game:

    Oval Office
    You are standing inside a White House, having just been elected to the presidency of the United States. You knew Scalia would pull through for you.

    There is a large desk here, along with a few chairs and couches. The presidential seal is in the middle of the room and there is a full-length mirror upon the wall.

    What do you want to do now?

    > INVADE IRAQ
    You are not able to do that, yet.

    > LOOK MIRROR
    Self-reflection is not your strong suit.

    > PET SEAL
    It’s not that kind of seal.

    > EXAMINE CHAIRS
    They are two several chairs arranged around the center of the room, along with two couches. Under one couch you find Clinton’s shoes.

    > FILL SHOES
    You are unable to fill Clinton’s shoes.

Good stuff. Link found via Boing Boing.

  1. Oh wow I am an idiot. I somehow managed to miss the entire first line of your post and attempt to click the boing boing link… So now we both have the same link posted.

  2. Brought back memories.
    Step through the mirror and down the rabbit hole grin

    No hang on,that’s what George did.
