how the f**k do you play it at the bathroom? Disgusting ass mfers... I'm guessing while taking a deuce? Why do people take 15-20 minute poops? Increase your fiber intake people, it will help you poop quicker.

$35 is not the average wage of the smart phone user, unless all smart phone users are well paid business executives and not just your average joe- which most are.

I WISH I got paid $35 a month. You know how many people on unemployment have iPhones? Women will pay for their smartphone before an abortion, believe that. Also, if they aren't playing Angry Birds, they're playing something else. It's a flash game, not a franchise.

Right? Where the heck do they get $35 an hour? I think 15% of people that have smartphones make that lol.

Didn't seem like there was any loss in productivity at the strip club out in Vegas last week, so I guess it ain't that way for everyone...

I know! It's times like these that I don't like being on Android. I want the extra Cut the Rope levels, and CtR Experiments!

angry birds is THEE most overrated game. play crush the castle, you'll be as content as angry birds.

It may be an overrated game, but you can't deny the reach of it. Even if no one ever played the game again it would go down in history alongside Pac-Man and Tetris because EVERYONE is playing. The quality of the game doesn't matter, it's the cultural impact that it's had.

Maybe instead, people waste their time reading articles like this and then commenting on them.
