Man requests U.S President to ban Skyrim

In what can be described as either a practical joke. or a sad attempt to garner a bit of attention for himself, a man from Tennessee has requested the President of the United States to ban The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim all over the country.

Can't touch this


We, the American people, today ask you,

1) To enact an immediate ban on the videogame known as "SkyRim" produced by Blizzard Entertainment.
2) To seize and destroy all copies already in public hands and erase its presence on the internet.
3) To prosecute the players of "SkyRim" to the fullest extent of the law.
4) To create a national database of videogame avatars and "screen names" so that teenagers can be better monitored.

Damn, considering I’m already 70 hours in, I’ll probably be a felon in this dude’s eyes. Also Blizzard Entertainment? How tough is it to get your facts right? Thanks to Kotaku for the heads up.
