Toilet Humour

Talking of urine, there’s an interesting article over at Games for Wii.

The Wii is Nintendo’s next ground-breaking console, due not soon enough as far as I’m concerned. As soon as I heard the name, it made me think, quite naturally, of toilets; it appears am not alone:

“We have received over 200,000 e-mails with complaints about the Wii, and the console name has been commonly associated with urine. We have been the target of many jokes, and we strongly believe that it’s a bad thing for the company’s reputation”, says Mike, who works at the marketing department of Nintendo.

No idea how true this is, since Mike has no surname, but I want to believe it so much.
