The Oatmeal is at it again. If you're familiar at all with the works of The Oatmeal, known in real life as Matthew Inman, you're familiar with how he feels about babies. That he prefers cats and dogs to babies is a matter of internet record.
He has called babies, "selfish, amniotic, jam-covered goblins," and that they, "have no special powers, other than transforming interesting, hopeful people into bald, sallow, regretful barf-slaves."
It's also a matter of record how he feels about bears, given that he's produced comics such as "Six Reasons To Ride a Polar Bear to Work" and has a plaque from the National Wildlife Federation declaring him, "Champion of Bears."
Small wonder then, that this internet sensation has teamed up once more with Elon Lee to create a new game called Bears vs. Babies. This game, announced yesterday, is a card game that is similar to the popular game, Munchkins. According to the information released, players take turns drawing from a deck and try to build a Frankenstein-like army out of body parts. There are also baby cards that form the group enemy on the table. At any time, the babies can be provoked into attacking each player in turn. If the babies outnumber the player's army, the babies win, and the player must clear their army from the table. On the other hand, if the player's army is more powerful than the baby army, the player wins and collects the babies as points.
