Wiis and poos

My subject line is an example of one of the many piss-related puns we'll be hearing from Nintendo naysayers over the next couple of months/years.

Now normally I'm all for what Nintendo does and decides and stuff but "Wii" has to be one of the most misguided names I've ever seen. I can understand the idea and philosophy behind the whole thing and everything, but why name your console after a child's name for a bodily function?

I suppose in the big N's defence, I'm sure people thought The Gameboy was a stupid name at the time, but look where that got them. Probably something to do with Gameboy not having any connotations to do with toilets.
