Cutting and pasting from today's Reuters newswire feed:
NEW YORK April 1, 2005 - Today several ambassadors to the UN from
smaller nations announced that the next major release cycle out of
little-known software and role playing game rules publisher, Code Monkey
Publishing (CMP) would include data files for the PCGen and Etools
products representing these countries' new constitutions. From that
point on, all legal matters in these countries will be decided by
"rolling up a character" that represents each of the parties involved
and acting out a free-for-all combat using strangely shaped dice to
resolve the dispute.
It was also noted that military research in these nations will be
converted over to data-file customization as building weapons of mass
destruction is quite a bit less expensive when you just have to add a
few characters to a file. Noted Burma's representitive, "and the best
part is that the United States is much less likely to invade us for
shipping out data files... as long as we don't include any copyrighted
music in them."
