It's a heart-wrenching and disturbing story of an oppressed minority. After surviving insult after insult, the minority is pushed over the edge when the ruling ethnic group kidnaps all of their children in an attempt to wipe out their race, driving them to physically hurl themselves at the buildings where the oppressors live and end their lives as suicide bombers in a desperate rage-fueled act of revenge that won't change their fate of extermination.  Yup, Angry Birds feels kind of different when you take the story seriously.

I always wondered about the whole birds-dying-on-assault business. I mean, they could have been portrayed as simply being dazed and dented a la Wile E Coyote - but nope, we see them fatally vanish in a puff of feathers.

Even creepier are the bomber birds, who use their unborn as weapons. If the birds are so angry about stolen eggs, you'd think this would be frowned upon.

I just realized something else -- you still win even if all the birds are dead, so long as you kill all the pigs. It's a fairly bleak outlook on life.

I guess that's why it's not called Diplomatic Birds.

I'm not sure if they've reached other places, but there are plushie angry birds being sold on street corners here in Hong Kong. I'm tempted to buy them so I can throw them at people.

I wonder if the TSA would complain if I brought a stuffed black (bomb) bird through the airport.
