3.72 -The One with the Wii condom

I'm not sure what to think of this...Nintendo is spending over $18 million to supply all Wii owners with what they call the "Wii Remote Jacket" for free. It's supposed to help with your grip of the remote and I guess add protection to those who get smacked with it.

All you have to do to get one of these is to go on the site and submit your Wii serial number and the numbers of "remote jackets" that you want. So far I haven't been very successful in getting past that stage. Every time I try it gives me this error:

"Our records indicate that your request for additional Wii Remote Jacket(s) has exceeded the maximum quantity allowed per Wii serial number."

That happened on the first time I tried...and the second time...anyways, I've e-mailed the support department and hopefully I'll get my free Wii condom...errr..."remote jacket".


Nintendo got back to me...


I'm sorry to hear that you had a problem placing your order for the Wii Remote Jacket. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Please wait a few days before trying to place your order again. When you return to the website and place your order again, you should be able to view the order confirmation page displaying your seven-digit order number. This means your order was successfully completed. Considering that orders will not begin shipping until October 15th, the wait should not delay your order once it does go through. On behalf of Nintendo, I thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely, Nintendo of America Inc.

looks like I'll be getting my condoms...I wonder if they come in different flavors?

Your post was great . . . until the last sentence.

Was the flavour comment necessary??
