Shirley, you must be joking...

I asked before, and I'll ask again: Has Jon Stewart been named head of the News Dept. over at Reuters? According to this article last week:

Rockstar, the maker of best-selling video game series "Grand Theft Auto," said on Wednesday it would launch in October "Bully," a game with themes of school fighting that has anti-violence critics up in arms.

The game's main character is 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins, who must defend himself against school bullies at a fictional U.S. boarding school called Bullworth Academy, while dealing with characters ranging from nerds and jocks to authoritarian prefects.

So do you think anti-violence critics literally have their arms up? Like Jimmy Hopkins? Or the bullies?

Surely the folk over at Reuters must have realized the pun before the article went to press, no? [Interview with PR rep at Reuters: "No, we did not intend any such pun, and stop calling me Shirley."]
