Lady actually inserts credit card into Wii slot, breaks Wii

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.

We all know it is rather stupid, but we've all learnt how to do this at one stage.

When the guy said "You can put in your credit card", a person may just assume that it would be possible to do that considering the technology these days.

I mean, I wouldn't do it because I know how it works. But the Wii slot is pretty credit-card inviting in a way. I mean, it'd fit right in.

So I don't think her assuming the credit card going in the Wii is really "that" stupid, but when she put in more then one.. I think that is going a bit over the scale.

If Al Gore can get a Nobel prize for a stupid movie, anyone can get one for anything. I would not be surprised.

Maybe not so funny in the future when we can actually do that. We'll be more amazed about why the Wii is not capable of accepting credit cards in its disc slot.

So this is Nintendo's new demographic? Good move now she'll have to buy a new one and that put's more money in Nintendo's pocket.

It's true that misunderstanding "put in your credit card" can be forgiven, but what really got me was that she continued to cram in more cards "until there was enough to make it work". That's not just misunderstanding video game technology, that's misunderstanding credit cards and probably misunderstanding life altogether.
