THQ Ships Gold-plated Nintendo Wii to the Queen of England


Sponsored Links
278w ago - The Nintendo Wii has positioned itself as the gaming console for everybody. As it turns out, that includes the Queen of England.

Well, sort of. It's not like Her Royal Highness went down to Wal-Mart and bought one with her summer job savings. Rather, she was given a special version by gaming company THQ.

To quote: Buckingham Palace will be getting a special delivery today as THQ plans to deliver a golden Wii earmarked for the Queen.

The pack will also include a copy of the newly released BIG Family Games, as Philip, Charles and the rest of the royal gang compete for the living room crown.

The publisher hopes the PR stunt will amuse Queen Elizabeth, though we hope the 83-year old monarch doesn't throw her arm out swinging the console's presumably heavier gold-plated remote.

Since it was not a BBC report it's kind of hard for me to give you a BBC report of those children. Although it was on the news, I searched over and over and couldn't find it on the web.So I do apologize for not being able to provide such a source.

Regardless England is going down in flames, this is just another nail in the coffin.

Also WWII Didn't all of a sudden start.... The things that are happening now are the same that happened before Hitler came to power or rather in the beginning of his reign.

I believe we have wandered off topic perhaps too far (my fault for replying to your message, i just found it very insulting, i shall say no more on the subject, let us agree to disagree).

So that's where British money is going... My god I can't decide if England was always this stupid or just recently.

I say this because I hear nothing good coming from there, a talk show host known as Michael Savage was recently banned from going to England because of his political views. Now agree with the man or not You can't ban someone because of their PERSONAL BELIEFS! I remember the last time something like that had... A little war came after that called WORLD WAR II...

At any rate that's not the only thing England has been messed up with. There was a girl who was put on a science project with people who didn't speak English and she asked to switch teams, a reasonable request might I say. However the Teacher yelled "You should go to jail you Racist!" The Teacher called the police and 3 days later the girl was taken from her home and put in a jail cell for 3 hours. Granted not that long but it was a request that someone said was racist and she ended up in jail for it. IT'S BS!

Now I hear they are trying to pass a law which will ban Politically incorrect speech, with a maximum jail time of 7 years in prison if you say something that is not Politically correct....

Why do I bring this up? Because I'm sure the British HATE the state of affairs. It's absolute BS. But I'm sure they will be glad to hear that the queen is having a good time... Yeah they will be real happy...
