Crashteroids Game Caps Off Horrible Week for MSNBC's Jim Cramer

March 14, 2009 -

It has been a rough week for frenetic financial guru Jim Cramer, host of MSNBC's Mad Money program.

Having been pilloried on several recent episodes of The Daily Show, Cramer opted to appear as a guest, apparently in an attempt to explain himself to host Jon Stewart. Bad idea: Cramer's Daily Show appearance was a disaster.

Financial site The Big Money lampoons Cramer's media woes with Crashteroids, a fun little Asteroids knock-off:

Avenge Cramer’s disgrace at the hands of Jon Stewart by blasting his smug grin into space dust. Defeat Business Insider’s Henry Blodget, a man who once called Cramer “a chair-throwing, self-aggrandizing clown.”

 

Protect Cramer from Fox Business, a network that sneered, “[T]he last thing you need is Jim Cramer.” Shred Barron’s magazine, a publication that has tried to prove Cramer gives crappy investment advice. And, of course, keep the grizzly hordes of bear-market economists at bay.

I saw that Daily Show episode. Stewart annihilated Cramer, and I saw every bit! It was great! I have never seen someone get screwed in the ass so hard since I accidentally watched that gay Internet porn!

.......Uhh...I-I mean, umm....Look, it's JT! Get him! *runs and hides behind a bush*

Just as I was surprised neither have used the term obamanation (pun on abomination), colbert's right-wing persona especially.

Asteroids? Really? Even when I first played it I thought it was a lame game.

Re: Crashteroids Game Caps Off Horrible Week for MSNBC's Jim

Asteroids is not really lame- it just has bad tank, er, ship controls.

When I press up, I better go up. Don't give me first-person controls in a third person game!

I hope these people know that Jon Stewart is a comedian, and that it's basically his job to make fun of Jim Cramer, and just how much he FAILED.

I don't mean to sound like a cable news nerd, but Mad Money is on CNBC, not MSNBC.

MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
