The Black Sheep Flash Game

From Brendan Connell:

I mentioned here that I thought Ben Peek’s novel was getting popular in Switzerland.

The poster seems to have disappeared from my previous post, so here is a slightly different version, gleened from the UDC website (this one is different since it has a knife):



Well, the fun continues, on this websight, in which you can pretend you are a goat at the Swiss boarder. There is a German and a French version, choose whichever is easier to negotiate.

The object of the game is to kick out the bad black sheep, and let in the good whities.

To begin playing, you must first answer one of the quiz questions. For instance, when it asks about the percentage of crimes in Switzerland commited by foreigners, you have to answer 85.5%. Then you can play.


What Brendan fails to tell you is that you can kick out bus loads of evil black sheep. Also, you can shoot bags of money and blue, star spangled hats in another game. I have no idea what that's for, but I can only imagine it's some crazy, right wing, racist thing.

Because, you know, the rest of it is.

Yes, it's some racist crapola by the party of Swiss politician Christoph Blocher. There's even rioting going on in Switzerland, because of an upcoming federal election. The white sheep/black sheep motiv is from Blocher's campaign posters.

The picture has already been copied by Germany's NPD.

Yeah, I'm not clear what those hats are for. As you said though, it is clearly very right wing. You just need to get your book translated into Swiss-German.

Well, in any case: gotta hand it to the Swiss to run a politcal campaign. Now, if Obama would just put a Hillary Clinton video game on his web site...
