Queen Elizabeth II gets hooked on Wii

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has found herself a new hobby--playing with Prince William's Wii. British red top The People reports that the Queen has become hooked on the console after William brought it round to the royal residence, Sandringham House in Norfolk. The console was a Christmas gift from his girlfriend Kate Middleton, but when the Queen saw him playing, she apparently had to have a go.

According to a "Palace source," "She played a simple 10-pin bowling game and by all accounts was a natural. It was hilarious. William was in fits of laughter. He was enormously impressed at having such a cool Gran." However, now the 25-year old Prince may not be able to get his hands on his own Christmas present, as Her Majesty is monopolising the console. The source continues, "His only difficulty now is prising it away from the Queen's clutches. She showed all the signs of becoming a Nintendo addict."

She's using his, surely the Queen can get her own Wii, I know the demand is high but come'on she's the Queen!!

This is amazing. I'm falling in love with Nintendo all over again. I didn't like the GameCube so much, but the Wii has really improved Nintendo's image in my eyes.

*sparkle* *sparkle* little Wii,
Why won't you come play with me?
Underground, below the pipes
Like some very large shyguys
*sparkle* *sparkle* little Wii,
Why won't you come play with me?

*sparkle* *sparkle* Wii Wii
Now my hand waves like a bee!

Behold my awesomeness of transforming Twinkle Twinkle Little Star into a Wii song! Not only that, but I also change the "Circle Circle Dot Dot" rhyme too!

After the first sentence I totally lost it... lol. yes, i am that immature.

I know this isn't too relevant to the topic at hand... but why when it comes to consoles lately, people forget standard English? It's 'the Wii', 'the XBox 360', the 'PS3', etc. No idea where this idea of removing the 'the' and making it sound amazingly stupid came from!

Yay Nintendo.

You sure it doesn't have to do with a play on words? "...playing with Prince William's Wii." Sounds like a funny penis reference to me. :P

lighten up.

Oh i'm sorry. I should be reminded since when is this actually news though. Who cares if the queen is playing the Wii, there are far more important things going on in this world if you hadn't noticed.

next it will be "ANGER AND SHOCK AT QUEEN WHO WAS HAD A DRINK OF ALCOHOL, OH THE DISGRACE"
news just isn't what it used to be

Good route to take... How about "who cares whether you think it's news or not?"

Apparently lots of people seeing how many sites posted the story and how many replies it's gotten. If you're not interested fine, but how about just skipping to the next story instead of making useless and stupid posts?
