Sony Decapitates a Goat. Yeah.

I'm not making a joke thread here.

Original article (slightly NSFW)

Basically, Sony held a party in Athens in order to promote God of War II. Topless women and a Kratos cosplayer were there, as was a freshly slaughtered goat. Participants "were even invited to reach inside the goat's still-warm carcass to eat offal from its stomach."

I don't really have much to say to this, other than what.

    Clearly, Sony realizes they have fallen out of favor with their dark master and are trying to make amends.

    What the fuck?

    No. Seriously, just no.

    Sony can NOT BE THAT STUPID. It's impossible. I refuse to believe it. Sony HAS to have already used up enough of it's "retard" mana pool that it couldn't do something of this magnitude.

    Seriously, this is a joke, right? Somebody tell me it's a joke.

    They should have served minotaur. I never saw Kratos eating, or even touching no goat.

    The hilarious thing is that I had that exact same thought when re-reading that article.

    Seriously, this goat thing is so awesome in its ridiculousness that I'm not sure words fully do it justice.

    I have been informed that Sony themselves did not decapitate the goat, and that it was instead the work of a local butcher.

    But this thread title is funnier, so I'm keeping it.

    Why would they censor the breasts? It's unlikely anyone would complain about breasts. They would complain about the goat.
