People are still dumb enough to spend money on the same game over and over? Lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.

Normally I'd agree but you know... for $5 wasted you get quite a long ride. I don't play it often but as a time-killer I feel I get my money's worth. Mildly challenging and cheap. Rovio found the sweet spot with this.

They jumped the shark when they did the promotional tie in with Rio. Since then they've backed over the shark, pounded into the shark, been crushed by the shark, and been lined in a layer of silt on the bottom of the ocean.
