The first Angry Birds hit on Dec. 11, 2009. Since then, there have been more than a dozen spin-offs and sort of sequels and one compilation. The game has also spawned toys, food, magazines, theme parks, a dress, sports, ads, an upcoming movie, and one work of theology by Giridhari Dasa.
According to Apple, people have spent one million years playing Angry Birds. Then what's another hour or two, right?
