AGAIN!?!


  As the Mom of four and all of them game, I happen to find gaming humor funny. Especially if it’s pertaining to the legendary breakages of the XBOX.
.
  Several years ago when The Oldest was sending his “baby” off for repairs…AGAIN…I decided to “comfort” him with a little song. (And by “comfort” I really mean the entire house laughed its collective ass off at it.)
.

  So, for all you gamers who are sadly watching your own baby shipping off in its own cardboard coffin, I offer you
.
The X’s In The Box (to the tune of Cat’s In The Cradle by Harry Chapin)
.
Got an XBOX just the other day,
Quickly set it up and was ready to play.
But when I turned it on, something went wrong
“Guitar Hero” won’t load
Can’t play my favorite song!
So I dialed 1-800-M********t,
“Can you send a cardboard coffin?
Man I really wanna rock!”
.
‘Cause the X'ss in the box and it’s ready to go.
I got a million games, but they just won’t load.
It’ll be back someday, I don’t know when.
But we’ll be gaming then, my friend.
We’re gonna have a good time then.
.
So I wait and I watch for the UPS Guy,
I miss my BOX so much, man I wanna cry!
I got “Guitar Hero” and “Halo 3” too,
“Gears of War” and “Mercenaries” rules!
As I watch out the window, a gentle rain falls.
I don’t mind saying M*******t sucks balls!
. 
‘Cause the X's in the box and it’s ready to go.
I got a million games, but they just won’t load.
It’ll be back someday, I don’t know when.
But we’ll be gaming then, my friend.
We’re gonna have a good time then.
.
Wake up at noon and I called my bro.
I said, “The BOX is back man, come on let’s go!”
Halo on line is awesome play
Until the processor started to smoke and I screamed, “No way!”
So I called out to God and I dropped to my knees,
I knew I should have bought the extended warranty!
.
‘Cause the X's in the box and it’s ready to go.
I got a million games, but they just won’t load.
It’ll be back someday, I don’t know when.
But we’ll be gaming then, my friend.
We’re gonna have a good time then.
