TMZ, a.k.a. Official News Network of the Paula Deen Racism Scandal, might be suffering from just a twinge of Deen fatigue, so they created this highly addictive, retro-recreational Paula Deen game, which we warn you to play at your own risk.
Hopefully, you’re still basking by the pool this holiday weekend with a fridge full of leftovers from yesterday’s cookout, but if you’re stuck indoors and need a brainbreak, give Paula’s Peril a whirl.
The object is to make Paula catch as many falling sponsorship logos in as she can (every time you get one, she screams a little “woo hoo!”), without letting any fall. (If you do let one fall, the voice of a Deen son chastises you with a solemn “dang it, y’all.”) The more sponsorships you let fall, the higher your Partner Anger level rises. When your Partner Anger maxes out, sticks of butter start stabbing Paula at the bottom of the screen (“AH! Buh-ter!”), and every stab takes one of your three Paulas away from you. When all your Paulas are gone, you’ve lost the game.
Check out Paula’s Peril here, but beware: if you become too invested, you will accomplish approximately nothing for the rest of the day. This message brought to you by the Paula’s Peril Temperance League.
