Sunday Funnies: 360 Origins, Console Reviews, Storage is Gangsta

Here's another roundup of multimedia laffs culled from the Interwebs. I make no representations of the freshness/expiration/ enjoy-by dates of any of this, only that I consider it gaming germane, and, at minimum, grimace-inducing.

Next up, what looks like a school newspaper "review" of about three generations of consoles and hand-helds. It's new, because it references "grand theft auto 4" and "gutter hero" for the Xbox 360, but apparently the GameCube is still worth considering this holiday season. And PS2's pros?

And finally, look, I'm reaching. And maybe this is an act. But if you have a shitload of video games, consoles, ROBs, maybe arcade cabinets and you have nowhere to put them, and you live near Chicago, Jones' Big Ass Truck Rental and Storage will hold your stash in comfort, style and security. How can you not trust a former "street pharmaceutical sales rep" who quit the business when he saw his "distribution manager" get shot?
