The Daily Mail had this wonderful piece of news to share with the world today:
Children who can't be bothered to turn up for PE lessons are being handed Nintendo Wiis to play on instead.
A school is offering pupils who deliberately leave their kit at home the games consoles in an effort to boost their enthusiasm for sport.
Staff are selecting overweight children or those who don't enjoy physical activity and sending them on six-week 'Wii courses'.
I honestly think this idea is absolutely stupid. I hated PE at school but could at least acknowledge that it was something everybody had to go through. Singling out a bunch of kids isn't going to do them any favours either. They're going to be mocked by the general chav audience who believe the Xbox 360 is the one true god.
