Pinball game to be based on Todd Akin’s rape remarks

in Uncategorized by

French inventor Marie Busson reportedly has developed a pinball game based on former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin’s now infamous remarks about how the “female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down” after a rape.

To the right is a prototype of the game, which positions the flippers as blocking the womb from intrusion by illegitimate rape sperm or whatever the metaphor’s supposed to be.

As described by Mediate, the plunger is placed on the side of the machine, it’s squarely in the middle, aiming between a woman’s legs (IT’S FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY), so players can shoot the metal balls straight on into the womb, only to be blocked by the flippers. The machine is titled La Femme Flipper… en Réponse à Tod Akin.
