CHILDREN’S game Moshi Monsters has been attacked by parents for having characters named Cockmonger, Twatsy and Big Arsehole.
Twatsy, a vertically-smiling monster described as icky, sticky and all too picky, by the popular web-based game, is one of many beasts parents object to.
Mother of two Joanna Kramer said she was horrified when her son kept shouting the name of his favourite character, Fuckface, across the playground.
She continued: “Within the context of the game it’s perfectly acceptable the characters face is in poor condition but there is the danger that children could begin using it as an insult.
As a busy parent it can be hard, when you hear your little ones shouting pissgargler and fannyfart at each other, to know if theyre playing a game that stimulates computer literacy and learning or just being rude.
Moshi Monsters creator Stephen Malley said: What parents dont understand, and kids do, is that these names are just a bit of fun.
If you take characters like Spunkguzzler, Wankhands, Turdnosher and Stupid Fucking Bastard seriously I pity your lack of imagination.
“It also gives children a chance to develop swearing skills.”
Mrs Kramers son, six-year-old Theo Kramer, said: My favourites are Shitweasel, Knob Jockey, Whore Tits and the bad guy Rimjob.
And I know mummy likes Moshi Monsters really because I heard her and daddy playing it and shouting the characters names at each other when Im in bed.
