    Lieber Lehrer,

    Vielen Dank für die wiederholte Erwähnung meines Namens im Klassenbuch. Ich habe mich wahnsinnig darüber gefreut. Auch der geile (crossed out) liebenswerte Brief von Ihnen in diesem coolen, blauen Umschlag hat vorallem meine Alten (crossed out) Eltern hoch entzückt. Gerne werde ich nächstes ahr alles nochmal lernen, zusammen mit den Kids, denen ich früher eins drauf gegeben habe.

    Ich danke Ihnen für Ihre Freundlichkeit und werde gleich vorbeikommen um mich HÖCHSTPERSÖNLICH ZU BEDANKEN...

    ...mit meinem Lieblingsspielzeug!

    Hast Du manchmal das Gefühl, von Deinen schlimmsten Feinden wie ein Wurm behandelt zu werden?

    Dreh' den Spieß um und mach sie fertig, mit WORMS !
    „Die Lemminge sind tot - lang leben die Würmer!“ (PC Joker)

    Gib den Worms die Namen Deiner Lieblingsfeinde, lauere ihnen auf und wenn sie Dir in die Quere kommen: Knall sie ab! Schnapp Dir die Waffen aus Deinem riesigen Arsenal: z.B. Bazookas, Dynamit, Handgranaten oder die supergefährlichen explodierenden Schafe und Bananen-Bomben. In der Welt der WORMS lebt man nur nach einer Regel: Töten oder getötet werden!

    WORMS ist absolut dynamitgeladen und verspricht bombigen Spielspaß. Zusammen mit bis zu 16! Spielern kannst Du ballern was das Zeug hält.

    Aber VORSICHT: Suchtgefahr!!! Wegen Risikien und Nebenwirkungen, lies die Packungsbeilage oder frag Deinen Händler.

uk.playstation.com:
    Voted Game of the Year in 1995, Worms established itself as a PlayStation smash hit, despite the fact that it has no pretences about pushing the power of PlayStation to its limit. Instead, gameplay rules supreme in this turn-based strategy game that's packed with humour.

    Players control up to 8 teams of worms over hostile terrain where the only objective is to survive - and the surest form of defence is attack. Weapons on offer include homing missiles, scatter bombs, bazookas, shotguns, dynamite and even Street Fighter II moves! Opponents have to be out-thought as well as out-fought, and the sneakier the thinking the better - Worms really comes to life against human opposition. Looking for something different? Get Worms. As the publicity says, the worms have turned. And how.
