Fame and Fortune

Two years ago, I worked as a receptionist, but got fired for pouring the milk before the cereal in the break room. I had nothing left. I was on the street one year later with absolutely nothing. I was living off ramen and Mac and cheese. I had a small blanket as my home. While sitting on the sidewalk, a man was rubbing a beautifully designed 8-bit bird on her iPhone. I asked him what this glamorous hobby was. He told me about this app. He let me rub the bird for about 5 minutes then politely asked for his phone back. He then looked back at me and told me I could have his phone since he was getting a new one soon. I rubbed the bird for 68 hours and 39 minutes straight as soon as I accepted. When I rubbed this bird, I felt a surge of courage course through me as electricity would. I continually rubbed this bird. As I did, more money was put into my plastic tupperware than I ever could imagine. I now live in a 6 story mansion with 3 pools in my yard. I continue to rub the bird in my new job as an assistant manager at Apple. All thanks to my virtual flying friend and business partner, rubby bird. This app definitely deserves more than 5 stars. Thank you, rubby bird.

Saved my Marriage

My wife and I had been having an affair. We thought the marriage that was 20 years in the making was over... Just as I began to accept the probability of losing my children to the custody of my wife, this game came into my life. This wonderful, simplistic game. My wife noticed I was playing it in court, and she walked over to scold me, before seeing the cute bird that I had been rubbing on the screen of my phone. Tears trickled down her face, the bird represented the innocence of our relationship, and the rubbing, was the erasing of that innocence in replacement with the new found guilt we both shared. This game served as my coping mechanism, a way to give up, but my Wife saw it as a second chance. She downloaded the game, and we rubbed the birds all night, bonding once again. We learned that love deserves second chances, if it is truly meant to be. This bird is not just an app. It is a counselor, a guide into what was once thought the impossible. My kids are now happily living with two faithful parents whose relationship has never been stronger. Thank you, Rub The Duck. Thank you.

This changed me

After playing for five minutes, I realized the true meaning of life. The one the gives us as humans a purpose to be here. I realized what is important in life. Your probably asking well what are these purposes and why do I care? Well I'll tell you why you care. If you do not know the world will be destroyed by the time you stop reading this review if you don't fully understand the meaning of life and it purpose on earth. First, you must realize the relationship between us humans and birds. We buy the birds, we cook the birds, we eat the birds. If you are a farmer, you lock them up, steal their babys, kill them and sell them. We have to fix that relationship, make it right. Our world revolves around birds. Well how will we do this you ask? Runny bird is the key to the gateway to a better future. That is why you should tell your friends, your family, and anyone else you know to download this game. This is why I tell you to download this game. All other questions that weren't answered just forget about. Only the illuminati knows that.
