Obesity Awareness campaign champions 'exergames', whatever the hell that means

What should you do with a fat kid? No, don't lock him in a cage without food for a week, you jerk. Give him some exergames to play. What are exergames, you ask? Oh, just the latest catchphrase that describes videogames that are designed for movement, such as Wii Fit.

At an international health conference held this week in Montreal, organizer of the 2008 McGill Health Challenge Think Tank Lauren Dube commented that exergames are a favorable way for overweight children to stay active. Also maintaining the same stance was Linda Carson, a P.E. professor at West Virginia University, who commented: "...exergaming needs to be recognised as an exciting alternative to traditional physical education."

I don't disagree, but I absolutely cannot tolerate this new "exergames" catchphrase bullsh*t. Kill it now, before it breeds!
