Jack Thompson targets Wendy's hamburgers

The more we find out about Jack Thompson, the more we think he’s just plain nuts. His latest action squarely places him among the company of such luminaries as Daffy Duck and Foghorn Leghorn – he’s crazy and he can’t shut up.

In the latest adventures of "Who am I gonna harass next?" Thompson has decided that Wendy’s is as good as a target as any. But the big question is, "what for?" This may take quite a leap of logic, but Thompson is mad at Wendy’s because it will be promoting the Nintendo Wii. Ok, "so what," you say. The reason why Thompson has his underwear cinching at his privates is due to the fact that ManHunt 2, a shooter, will be appearing on the Wii game console. And since Nintendo will have this "murder simulator" available on the Wii, it is guilty as sin for allowing such a violent game to reach the pristine minds of under-aged gamers. See, we told you it would be a stretch.

Thompson made his convoluted case against Wendy’s by saying, "A dear friend of mine worked for Wendy’s and with Dave Thomas closely for years. From that I know that Dave Thomas never would have tolerated the use of Wendy’s good name to promote Nintendo’s Wii, not with this game available on the Wii platform."

So basically, Jack is speaking for the founder of a company he has never met and who passed away in 2002. But in Thompson’s world, this makes perfect sense.
