Tesco in X-rated Lawnmower Simulator shocker

If it's got grass on it, you've got to mow it

Top three mobile application threats

We think someone is having a laugh down at Tesco, where aficionados of hot grass action can apparently get the X-rated Wii version of Lawnmower Simulator 2007:

Lawnmower Simulator 2007 as seen on Tesco website, rated 18+

Well, as the old joke goes, if it's got grass on it, you've got to mow it.

For the uninitiated, the game synopsis explains: "Ever had dreams of being the Head Grounds keeper at a stately home? Well now you can realise that dream and more! Lawnmower Simulator 2007 allows you to mow the most beautiful lawns in Britain."

Further information showing game is in English (Scouse)Seems innocent enough, but further proof of internal Tesco waggery comes in the "More info..." bit of the blurb, as you can see on the right. Cue German bubble perm porn mullet and tash combos (aka the "Voller"), shell suits and a lorra, lorra "deluxe ride-on model" gameplay. Phwooar. ®
