Bankers Still Not Catching a Break, Instead a Whack on the Head

Pity the bankers! Adding insult to tax-related injury, an arcade game developer has designed a version of the “Whack a Mole” game called “Whack a Banker”. As the name implies it allows gamers to soothe their financial crisis, bailout, unemployment, and exorbitant bonus-related frustrations by bashing on miniature banker figurines.

According to the BBC:

“Inventor Tim Hunkin introduced ‘Whack a Banker’, which is based on the older ‘Whack a Mole’ game, at his arcade on Southwold pier in Suffolk.

“Instead of players hitting pop-up moles with a mallet, within a set time, the target is pop-up bald figures.

“Mr Hunkin said the game was ‘proving very popular’.

“‘I keep having to replace worn-out mallets,’ he said.”

We wonder how long it takes until they release a “Whack a Politician” version…?
