Bungie's MMOG Backtracking

The Bungie Weekly Update backtracks from lead network engineer David Aldridge's GDC comment earlier this week saying their next project is a massively multiplayer action game (thanks Big Download). They are now claiming this is a joke, invoking endless Charlie Sheen references in their explanation:

Tired of pretending that he’s not a -blam!-in’ rock star from Mars, David Aldridge inhaled a huge hit of David Aldridge at GDC yesterday. Subsequently, his face melted off and children wept over his exploded body. After the childish tears, gelatinous gibs, and acrid smoke cleared, an industrious journalist noticed the final slide from David’s GDC deck which apparently proclaimed that we were hiring for a "massively…multiplayer action game." Ruh oh.

Now, in rehearsal Aldridge was convinced that everybody got the joke. It was all in the delivery, he assured us, and he was certain it was clear that he was playfully riffing off of the recent rumors. Unfortunately, most people can’t figure David out – they can’t process him. And we don’t expect them to. You can’t process David Aldridge with a normal brain. You’d need tiger blood and Adonis DNA.

Why is/was that intended to be funny if it was a joke what's the punchline. A game developer developing a new game, who cares if it's a mmog or single player, what's the joke.

Is the joke that Bungie is too unskilled to make a mmog..So they were teasing since they would screw it up..They were trying to get a big yuk, yuk.
Haha..scared ya!..type of thing?

Now on the other hand this Bungie Weekly Update is hilarious. They are trying to explain a joke that doesn't exist. Not only are they trying, they are trying so hard it's making themselves look...what's the word.. like a joke?
