Columnist Joe Blundo has a bit of fun with Grand Theft Auto (and other targets) in a recession - themed piece for today's Columbus Dispatch.
As per Blundo, in order to deal with recessionary pressures, GTA will be re-invented as Grand Theft Auto Executives:
The amoral video game is retooled with a theme more reflective of the times. Instead of trying to steal cars, players maneuver executives of the Big Three auto companies on a trip through Congress.
Their goal is to secure more emergency loans or, failing that, pilfer trinkets they can sell on eBay to raise money for their faltering companies.
