Chances are you're as addicted to playing Angry Birds as we are. Who doesn't like catapulting fat, mean little birds into obstacles in order to squash them?
Rovio, the creators of these pesky little avian kamikazes, is cashing in on the success of Angry Birds by self-publishing a family cookbook of egg recipes. The company is in talks with both Amazon and Barnes & Noble to distribute the book and also plans to release the recipes in app form.
Laugh if you will, but 200 million people have downloaded the bird-versus-pig warfare game. Angry Birds is already being turned into an animated television show, and according to blogger website Hongkiat.com, there are at least 85 different Angry Birds-related items for purchase, including iPhone cases, plush birds, and earrings.
No word yet on whether the pigs in Angry Birds will be represented by including bacon recipes -- but we're hoping.
