[prMac.com] Copenhagen, Denmark - From Denmark (where it created a lot of stir), despite being the happiest place in the world (and the first nation to legalize pornography, although any connection between the two is unproven), comes an app that will surely shock some, and have others bursting into fits of uncontrollable laughter.
"The Fat Penguin" (because nothing breaks the ice better, except perhaps a fat polar bear) is a social trivia game, for 2-8 players (IRL), that will challenge the limits of what you consider "TMI", and how much you are willing to share of your deepest secrets, and freakiest experiences.
It was criticized in Denmark for being too sexual regarding its inquisitive content, but despite this, it has been used in special education purposes for the mentally challenged. "In order to give them a fun and innocent way to talk about sex, which is especially hard for my students", says Julie Rasmussen of Langagerskolen (School for the Mentally Challenged).
