Another one of the conversations between myself and the WiiFit, transcribed for your enjoyment.

    I have to admit, I lol’d at that, especially the punchline, which (apparently) is the point of said punchline. :)

  2. Angie says:

    Hee! I love these pieces of yours, but I have to admit I’d still like to get a WiiFit. ;D


  3. Oddly: every time you write about the WiiFit, I think “I should get one of those…”

  4. Dave says:

    I got one.. Now I’m a Ski Jumping Professional.. I’m in the “normal” range.. so it’s not quite so bad.. my wife gets the “over weight” treatment.. and her Wii (Avatar) swells up after her “Body Test” (weigh in)..

    I say, get it.. really.. my kids from 3yo .. to me.. at 43.9 years old (but sometimes a Wii age of under 30!) all love it.

    And Shamus’ comics are dead on.. which makes the thing even better.

    I do wish the redundant clicking was taken out of it.. once you’ve been trained what the things mean it gets old to be told again and again… and yes, Wii, I know I can use you to weigh other things.. quit telling me how to do it!

  5. Hakunin says:

    Anyone else having flashbacks?

    “Look at you, Hacker. A pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?”

  6. Kanerou says:

    *rolling so much* My family owns Wii Fit, and yes, the Wii Balance Board is a pesky, annoying little creature. Like Dave said, this stuff fits. No pun intended. ;)
