Wii are the champions...of silly names

Wii are the champions...of silly names

Nintendo has officially announced that it's replacing the cool code name for its next-gen gaming console, Revolution, with the significantly weenier and more nonsensical name, Wii. According to the Nintendo site, Wii (pronounced "we") is indicative of a togetherness sort of feeling, thanks to its "distinctive spelling" and its lack of "confusion." Maybe Wii will grow on mii, but for the moment, all I've got are a bunch of inappropriate wii wii jokes.
