FLAPPY BIRD 2: RETURN OF THE TIME-WASTERS

Widely publicised twat-distracting app 'Flappy Bird' is due to return to the apple app store soon, according to completely not hilariously named app creator Dong Nguyen, just one month after the games removal from the app store sparked an equally batshit-insane reaction as the games initial release.

Dong claims the app had 'ruined his simple life', which must have made the daily £30,000 advertising payments unbearable (didn't Good Charlotte write a song about this once?). He claims that death threats and harassment from the press, players and even parents of players forced him to move out of his parents house (28 years old) and flee to a friends apartment in what onlookers can only assume was a wild Hefner-esque whirlwind of video game programming related debauchery.

Despite it's 50 million downloads, the Flappy Bird format is due to change, however, according to Dong's twitter, as he tries to remain relevant in the cultural melting pot that is the app-store. This could also be due to allegations that he stole art from a certain rather popular Japanese game developer prompting the subtle headline 'Flappy Bird is making $50,000 a day off ripped off art' on Kotaku.

Flappy Bird might as well go out on the same note that the first tweet about it made, capturing the essence of the games infuriating strength and preposterously-difficult weakness, simply put; 'Fuck Flappy Bird'.
