How do I even begin to explain

Santa brought a wii at Christmas. It has resulted in obsessions. Shoulder strain. And a slight case of vertigo.

The favorite game in the house is Mario Kart. And this particular game has led the girls down the path of being interested in any type of Mario game. They got Mario Party for their DS. They have even begun scouring Japanese toy stores for plush versions of their favorite Mario characters.

And now. They are asking for a new game. A game called Wario Land shake it. Can someone please help me arrive at a practical explanation as to why. Why there is no way I can let this game enter my house. Because after you watch this video. You will understand that this will be all I can think about. And I really don't want my girls to be naturals. Not at that.

Well aside from the fact that I absolutely HATE Alec Baldwin, I can understand why you wouldn't want your girls to become naturals at that. LOL

That clip is SO inappropriate! And it made me laugh really hard. Especially the part about the mother being a natural....

Angie's Spot said...

Geez. I really wanted a Wii, but now, I'm not so sure.

Oh. So. Wrong. I can't believe I watched that all the way through. And ummm, we may be waiting longer to get a video game system than I thought ;)

Brian and Staci said...

Oh my goodness...I am CRACKING up! Well, I don't know anything about the Wario Land....wish I was more help...we are in the land of Mario Kart and Star Wars for the Wii...and I believe that is where it seems I will stay for eternity

Hysterical. Absolutely hysterical!

John Deere Mom said...

OMG! I am cracking up right now! My husband would TOTALLY want me to get that game. ;) But your daughters? Not a good idea!

Twisted Fencepost said...

That cracked me up!
Don't think I'd want my kids to have that game either. They may not get it, but every time I saw them "shake it" I would think of this video.

Lula! said...

"Can we do two players?"

Oh. My. Head.

You KNOW your mom would DIE if you got this for the girls..

p.s. "Your mother's going to be a natural..." That's what she said.

Elena said...

OH MY WORD! My son walked in while I was watching this!! Gee thanks! LOL!!!

Teri said...

I swear, I have not seen this clip. Hilarious! Have you seen Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock? That show is just as quirky (almost) as this clip. I gotta show Doug this.

Ashley said...

Oh my goodness... I wasn't expecting that.... wow... you cannot own that game.... period.

Hehe!

Aleta said...

LMAO - I'll have to show this to Greg. He'll get a kick out of it. He loves Wii.

Rhea said...

Lizzy's comment and Lula's comment both had my laughing even more. hehe

ChicagoLady said...

All I can say is...OH MY GAWD!

Linda said...

Oh my ... hysterical! My hubby and I were watching that clip a few weeks ago and cracking up and of course the kids want to see what we're watching. Um, no. Don't even want to explain what's so funny about that.

Shelley said...

Stopping by to see how your husband is doing? I see that your sense of humor has not gone anywhere. Love it.

Karen said...

That is hysterical. I really need to send this to my daughter :-)
