A Wii Bit of a Problem

This article made me smile.  Apparently some people are really getting into their new Wii games, and their remotes are flying and breaking things as a result.  Sweaty hands and people letting go of the remote are apparently the culprits.  One bowling game that requires you to move your arm like you are bowling is apparently causing problems because people actually let go of the remote as they would a real bowling ball.  Nintendo is apparently “looking into” wrist straps breaking.

Wrist straps?  I think they should look into wrist straps not being worn.  Seriously, I would have never worn it.  I would have looked at it and thought, “Well, that’s gay.” (Sorry, that’s how I talk.  Not PC, but that’s me.)    I’d, of course, be one of those people looking at the hole in my TV saying, “Oh.  So, that’s what the strap was for.”

Then again, this could just be an ingenious conspiracy by some men to get that HDTV their wife won’t let them buy.  “Gosh honey, I can’t believe I did that.  How silly of me.  The rock?  Oh, well, I held that in my hand with the remote to add weight.  I guess we should just go HD since they’re so cheap now.  Bummer.”
