Woman tries to use Wii as a credit card machine ... fails

Usually, there's nothing funny about a woman abusing her slot, but this one is just too good to pass up. A NeoGAF eyewitness has recounted the tale of how his neighbor -- a poor, unassuming, completely out-of-touch woman -- tried to make a purchase on her Wii ... by jamming three credit cards into the disc slot!

After having to ask what a Virtual Console was, the would-be big spender had been informed that she could purchase games for the Wii by taking it online and then "putting in her credit card" when prompted. She took it literally. When the first card failed to do anything, she believed she had to keep putting them in until there was enough to make it work. Somehow she has survived to adulthood without getting killed. 

It doesn't help that she also cracked open her Wii Speak device somehow while putting it on top of the Wii remote's sensor bar. These are the people that publishers want to see more of in the market. These are the people now known as gamers. 

As with all truly stupid people, the woman blames the person whose advice she foolishly misinterpreted and now expects compensation. She is, to use the scientific term, one dumb bitch. 

The story is almost too stupid to be true, but by the same token, it's too funny not to take a chance on posting. Besides, in a world where people get mason jars shattered in their rectums, I'm willing to accept any tale of human idiocy.
