Want a Wii? Sell a Picture of it

This definitely falls under the heading, "why didn't I think of that?" Or perhaps a better heading would be, "that's so stupid it just might work!"

Christine and Justin are two NYC illustrators and run a web site called Wants For Sale. On this site they sell paintings of things they want for the exact retail price of the item. Once they sell their painting of the item they then use the proceeds to buy it. The things they want range from an order of buffalo wings ($12.70) to "financial security" (for one million dollars!). (Culture, Wii)

why would i want a wii when i can get a PS3/X360
I should get a PS2 rather than a wii --a JOKE CONSOLE

Atleast PS3 and X360 have next gen GAMES with NEXT GEN gameplay and graphics

NO SANE PERSON COULD get a wii over PS3 and X360

The sad thing is that people will pay them money. I've bought some original art in my life, but I don't think i could buy original art of a product.

only a clown like you would pick a ps3 or xbox over the wii simply cause you can see game characters face up close.. wii is the only system that offers innovation and games in every genre... a couple that can actually improve your sense, so you dont sound silly next time

too bad lots of wii games are just horrible with developers trying to get $$$ (Anubis 2, donkey kong barrel blast, jenga, ninjabread man,and many many more)

and most of the good ones are made by Nintendo.

I don't know whether to be impressed or laugh about this. I mean, who are the retards actually buying the art?!? I don't know, maybe these artists are well regarded in NY, but I've never heard of 'em. Hell, I guess, if it works than do it, but whoever is buying the art (buffalo wings?!?) is a facking moron.
