Wal-Mart has a dirty Wii

Wal-Mart has a dirty Wii photo



About two weeks ago, I went into my local Wal-Mart to grab some low fat sour cream. (I have a baked potato fetish. It’s how I get my carbs.) On my way to the refrigerated foods, I stumbled upon a Wii kiosk. Instead of being somewhere sensible, like the electronics section of the store, my Wal-Mart jammed a Wii at the end of an impromptu aisle of off brand soda.

Because it was so wildly out of place, I stopped to admire the set up. It was disgusting. The plastic shell covering the Wii and the hi-definition television were smudged by thousands of tiny fingers, not to mention streaked with some weird sugary substance. The nunchuck lay unceremoniously on ground, while the Wii remote, still in its proper holder, had nasty brown marks on its sides. The plate where everything rests was covered in rings from a chocolate pudding cup, dust, and black flecks. To top it off, a used napkin and spoon were left beside the console.

I have to admit though, the ice cream (not pictured) on the Vitamin Water side of the Wii tasted pretty good despite its warmth.

Stretching Mario's face will never get old

Now that it's downloadable for Wii U, Super Mario 64 has entered my life again. It wasn't my favorite Nintendo 64 title -- heck, it wasn't even my favorite 3D platformer on the console -- but it was a formative game and, com...more

Make an unholy shrine to Sonic out of bones

In this episode of Craft Lab, hosts Anna Akana and Greg Aronowitz craft a Sonic the Hedgehog statue partially out of chicken bones. It's cut down the middle to show his insides. Eww. If I went into someone's home and saw one of these on display, I wouldn't expect to leave alive. Would've been less creepy if they had kept Sonic's legs nice and lanky.more

Google Maps is now a giant game of Pac-Man

I like when companies channel their April Fools' Day creativity into something real as opposed to just announcing a phony product or service that really ought to exist. This year, Google has another fun interactive gag for us...more
