Wii can fix it

Wiis are fun. But as we’ve seen before – they’re also dangerous. While the name was probably a branding mistake for the English speaking world the revolutionary motion sensor controllers make them a great Christmas present… Some people are probably too stupid for computer games. And that’s sad. Like this lady who bought her children a Wii for Christmas…

“My neighbors which I don’t really know to well to begin with, got their kids a Wii for Xmas. They got no games for it, but they did get a Classic Controller as well as an additional Nunchuck Combo and a carrying case. They asked me what games they recommended, and I decided to recommend them the Animal Crossing City Folk/Wii Speak bundle, Wario Land Shake It,Mario Kart Wii, and Super mario Galaxy. I also recommended them some VC games including Super mario World, and Sonic 2 8-bit.

Anywho, the Mom asks me what VC is, and I told her. I told her that all she needed to do was put in her credit card when prompted on the Shop Channel, and get the amount of points she wanted. I also told her what WiiSpeak is, and how to connect her Wii to the internet via an ethernet connection.

Anywho, I got a call today from the mom telling me that the Wii is not working. I asked what was wrong and you won’t believe it………

SHE PHYSICALLY PUT 3 CREDIT CARDS INTO THE DISC SLOT.
HOW STUPID DO YOU HAVE TO BE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”

If you want to read the whole story there’s a bit of a language warning – but the woman is holding the neighbour responsible – and wants him to pay for the repair.
