Show us your cybertits

I know Mondays suck, but unfortunately I don’t have an unending supply of stupid 1930s wife quizzes to cheer you up. Instead I have this lovely story, found through Jezebel, about how a glitch in a game downsized all the female avatars’ boobs from EEs to unsightly Bs.

Funcom has responded to the complaints, saying that the company “can confirm that some of the female models in the game have had the size of their breasts changed. This is due to an unintended change.” The team is “working on a fix for this and your breasts should be back to normal soon.”

Oh, well, thank god. We wouldn’t want any horny game-playing doodz to be subjected, for even a day or two, to the sight of boobs that don’t cause crippling back pain. They might be forced to play the game merely for its graphics, gameplay, and social interactiveness! The horrors!

Fortunately, Jezebel commenter lisas sums it up pretty succinctly:

Yes, we can’t alienate the guy gamers, and who the fuck cares about girl gamers? They don’t really exist, and if they do, they really should just shut up and show us their tits.
