They should do the Canadian-style warnings that uses the graphic pictures to totally gross you out.

Ugh. I can see the hideous pictures now....

In other news, we will also begin labeling books according to how well they meet government-approved criteria for content--we don't want any of that Emmanuel Goldstein stuff sneaking in to confuse our relationship with Eurasia.

Well if anyone knows the guy pictured in the middle of that photo I work with him here in the states. It’s a scary doppelganger like match.

In the US they will soon follow on the pictures on the smokes and chew, but it will be a few years before warnings on video games. I guess for this what are they going to show a balding, older, overweight, single, bloodshot eye’s, pale (like not seeing the sun forever) that lives in there parents basement with a WOW shirt on his chest? Or the Asian café… I think that dudes been dead a week... somebody poke him with a stick to make sure.
