Mother Pwns Son

They're Laughing At YouI have seen a lot of funny posts in my lifetime, but this one is perhaps the best I have seen in a long time... Brion is a level 57 level Night Elf Hunter in World of Warcraft, but his mother is a level 59 Human Priest and Brion should know never to mess with someone two levels higher than him!

It seems that Brion tried to sneak in a little post to the WOW forums a little past bedtime and was caught ... big time:

((OOC))

Pardon me for hijacking the thread, here..

But, Brion - if you don't want your mother to know you were up and on the computer at 3:29 in the morning - DON'T post on a forum that she reads.

Busted.
Grounded.

Getting caught was bad enough, but then having the entire WOW community rag on you as well has to just add major insult to injury! If you keep scrolling through the posts you'll see that a suitable punishment was dished out:

Yeah, you won’t be seeing Brion at Alterac Valley tonight…

I’m going to make him watch a movie with me instead. I’m thinking a real chick flick - Steel Magnolias or Moulin Rouge. :)

Damn, I can not think of a worse public embarrassment for a teenager, getting totally pwned in public, by your mom!

I saw that on Joystiq. It's so frickin' sweet! I feel bad for the kid but he does deserve it. The ego bust alone is punishment enough.

Posted by PatMan33 at August 17, 2005 2:41 PM

LMAO, he should stick the FPS's

Posted by Yoyort at August 17, 2005 3:21 PM

LMAO! That is one of the funniest posts I've seen in a long time. That was great.

Posted by Simman at August 17, 2005 3:28 PM

ROFL, this is going to create a new wave of lvl 1 alt posts :)

Posted by Beomoose at August 17, 2005 3:57 PM

Looks like he fought the law and law won.

Posted by ToshiPaine at August 17, 2005 4:29 PM

Ahahahahahaha. Seen it before, wow, poor guy.

Posted by The Indum at August 17, 2005 5:03 PM

Someone else said it in the forum, and I thought it was funny --

"Briowned."

Hey steve would you include something about runescape in one of your podcasts?

Posted by Dan at August 17, 2005 9:42 PM

Steve only plays good games.


BURN!!!!!


Kidding! Kidding!


I used to play Runescape too.

That was a long time ago.

I feel a new in-game emote coming on: /Spank

Posted by Rabbit at August 18, 2005 12:11 AM

If i was that kid, i'd be pretty pissed off.

If i was him I'd go and remove WoW off her computer or do something to her account, but then again I'm the type of person who wants revenge for stupid stuff like that.

I don't see why parents have problems with kids staying up late, i could see a problem if they had to do something the next day, but if they got nothing to do, then let em.

Posted by Tarious at August 18, 2005 1:25 AM

That's cute, but nowhere near as funny as everyone wants it to be.

Posted by Glubags at August 18, 2005 2:33 AM

apparently he returns twice on page 7

" Im sry that we kinda hijacked the thread Wu....my mom and i apologize. But on the bright side, you created what might be a "bestseller" thread."

Posted by sgore at August 23, 2005 5:25 PM

oh and his mom comes back on page 10:

"Oh my...

I never in a million years thought this would happen. I just wanted to give him the bad news in a fun way.

I took pity on him (in light of these events) and we watched Stephen King's "The Dark Half".

He's a really great kid, despite the occaisional staying up too late.

Plus I need him to help me kill Araj this weekend! LOL"

there are 36 more pages of posts after that...

Posted by sgore at August 23, 2005 5:29 PM

I'm feeling sorry for those guys. if you'll notice barley anyone is really paying their posts after those orignal two any attention any more. People should start to light up on them a little...

Posted by sgore at August 23, 2005 5:34 PM

Now... what would a good and responsible mother be doing up at 3:29 am? :S
