The Very Bad Thing About D&D

Like a lot of geeks, I used to play Dungeons and Dragons. When I was playing, back in the 80's, various parental and religious groups took exception to the game accusing it of such things as causing teenages to kill themselves and to get involved with the Occult. For those of us playing the game, these claims seemed awfully silly and overblown.

The comedy group The Dead Alewives have perfectly captured this with a clever little skit called, simply, "Dungeons and Dragons". I'm going to link to two versions. The first version is to the original audio-only version of the skit. The second, called Summoner Geeks, is an animation of the first using figures from a video game called Summoners.
