Penny Arcade donates $10,000 in Jack's name to charity

Tycho and Gabe (Penny Arcade) (225)

Jack Thompson may not be able to keep to his word, but Tycho and Gabe of Penny Arcade have no problem picking up his slack. After Jackie Boy deemed his Modest Proposal as satire and refused to pay the $10,000 he promised after a few games and mods responded, these two video game do-gooders put up $10,000 of their own money to the Entertainment Software Association Foundation (the charity where, Tycho predicts, TakeTwo president Paul Eibeler would have wanted the cash donated).

The best part? They donated the money in his name, which is just a slap in the face at his claims that we as a community who has "little frontal lobe activity" and promised the money was real in the same comment.

You know Gabe and Tycho are your new heroes.

Update: Jack Thompson sent Tycho and Gabe a little message: "This story is completely false and defamatory. Take it down or else." Ironically, we got almost the exact same comment from him earlier today. Thanks, Mike Meunier.
