The 404 167: Where we give these people air

On today's show, Wilson's back and infecting us all with illness. Don't worry though, his laugh is definitely still there!


On today's show, Wilson's back and infecting us all with illness. Don't worry though, his laugh is definitely still there! We change the Army's motto, check out the Sim Cityesque building in Dubai, quarrel over history's best video game controller, announce the winner of our Go!Animate contest, and have a ton of fun...until it gets super awkward in midshow. Surprisingly, it's not Wilson's fault! Listen in to get the full scoop.

I might be homeless soon. Let me just say that there's nothing like waking up in the morning and groggily walking out of your room only to be up to your knees in raw sewage. Because of some serious plumbing issues, I had to literally swim out of my apartment to get to the office, but I got here safe and relatively sound. Hopefully my buddies Mario and Luigi will make an appearance and save the day. (Check the video game reference, Jeff!). If I do have to move out of my apartment, though, maybe I can move in with Jeff's buddy from Hoboken that he mentions, anything is better than raw sewage, right? Speaking of which, here we are almost a week after Jeff promised to give me a PS2 and I still have nothing to show for it. The top of my television remains console-less. What the eff Jeff, stop Bogarting that PS2! Do me a favor and leave a voice mail bugging that fool to give it over already, the excitement is building!

I'd like to officially congratulate our buddy Nelson Wan for winning our Go!Animate contest! We received hilarious submissions from our buddy Zen, Pac Gamer, and a ton of others, but we felt that Nelson's video completely captured The 404 dynamic--we plan on using it for future projects, so check it out! Hey Nelson, if you're reading this, e-mail us at the404[at]cnet.com and let us know your T-shirt size.
