In protest about the perceived misuse of the term "lasersharking," I have half-written a short game called "Lasersharking Matt's Ass." In it, you gather disparate genre elements together, graft them to Matt's Ass, and fight.

If you are interested in recieving a copy, please e-mail me at and view my shame.

P.S. Rich Forest has pointed out that I've been trying to hegemonopolize the term "lasersharking." I think it is a much more useful thing if it means "to add foreign genre elements" rather than "games I don't like," but he is correct that it is used in both senses.

A truer statement has never been said.

And I see the episode of Invader Zim, where a pair of aliens abduct Zim and graft a hamster to his head, with duct tape.

"You shouldn't have grafted the hamster to him! Now he's twice as powerful! Twice as deadly!"

I should've probably added that I see the usefulness of making the distinction, actually. Just that it's one that's best defended on "useful distinction grounds" rather than origin and prior usage grounds.
