Man chooses WoW over childbirth

"Five more minutes." - him

World of Warcraft is in the seat of blame again - this time on the Tyra Banks Show, where a concerned wife has been telling tales of woe about her addicted husband.

Two particularly bad examples of his 'dependency' were delaying his birthday dinner to get "just five more minutes," and leaving his wife in labour whilst he got a quick fix.

"Also, when I was in labour with my daughter it took a while," the wife told a concerned Tyra Banks. "So he went home to take a shower and he ended up getting on the computer and playing for about three hours, and then came back to the hospital before I gave birth."

Mister husband claimed that he didn't want to get too emotionally attached to his daughter in case Sudden Infantile Death Syndrome (SIDS) struck. Utterly speechless.

Still, every cloud has a silver lining, and Tyra managed to get things back on track by persuading the husband to kick his habit: right after The Burning Crusade launch, ouch.
