Gov. Christie And The Flappy Birds
Welsh and her daughter chatted with the governor throughout the game, and she even got him to make a birthday call to another Verona resident, Jodi Brown. And then Catherine Welsh decided to teach our state’s political leader how to play Flappy Birds on her phone. It is one of those annoyingly addictive games that involves steering a tiny bird through an obstacle course (rather than flinging it through the air).
“He tried and couldn’t,” Suzanne Welsh reports, and then handed Catherine back her phone. And what did the fourth grader say to Christie? “If you can govern a state, you can play Flappy Birds”. Luckily for Christie, this is unlikely to be an issue in his second term: At about the same time as the governor was learning to play it, the game’s developer was pulling it from the market because it was too addictive.
“He was truly generous with his time,” says Suzanne Welsh of the governor. “He graciously looked at Catherine and said to her ‘you are going places’! No matter one’s political affiliation, it was one for the memory books for my 10-year-old.”
