What's the best way for 12-year-old boys to spend time at sleepovers?

Well... for me it was prank calls, followed by video games or movies. It was effective. With prank calls you can show off by being funny or gross or good at swearing or something. With video games you can show off skills. Movies often have boobs. I have found something that can combine all three of these things. I'm sharing it because it's amusing, sheds light on what the kids today can do, and is one of those internet things that one is unlikely to stumble across unless you're a video game nerd (not being much of a video game nerd, I found it by searching YouTube for videos of international Homer Simpson voices).

Behold: M.U.G.E.N.

You see, it's a fighting game where you can create or download hundreds of characters and backgrounds. It allows kids to settle (in a way) the old bus stop questions of who would win in a fight. Peter Griffin vs. Homer Simpson seems to be a very popular question. I was always a proponent of Steven Seagal vs. anyone. Well, turns out, he would win in a fight versus Godzilla. So, that's settled.

I have no idea how long this has been going on, or what kind of kids (or adults) are making these characters and backgrounds and posting them to YouTube, but if I were a tween right now, I would be all over making hilarious battles. Since I'm an adult, I'll just do the three step internet processing system: snigger, share, and move on.

Also... if boobs are necessary, there are hentai characters available. Just sayin'.
