Wii-itis rife in the UK

British doctors are reporting record numbers of patients stricken down with the debilitating Wii-itis. This phenomenon is affecting at least 10 people each week. Common complaints include sore shoulders or knees after sessions with Wii Fit or Wii Sports.

Broomfield Hospital's Dev Mukerjee commented:

"There has been a 100% increase in patients complaining of Wii-itis. I've seen many patients aged between 8 and 13, I've also seen adults. It is possible that Wii-itis may lead to rheumatism and arthritis in later life, patients often have inflammation of the shoulder or wrist. People who are double-jointed are most likely to suffer from Wii-knee, and in extreme cases the kneecap can be dislocated or can even pop out".

If your kneecap has popped out, you might want to try a different technique in my medical opinion. Physicians are recommending that people stretch before getting their exercise on.

Those fools clearly played the wrong games, Super Mario Galaxy hardly requires any real movement, Brawl requires practically none and yeah.

It sounds like a joke to me. But honestly, even if true, people should stretch before exercising. It's just common sense.

I heard something like this from a friend of mine but meh he likes Sony and tends to make up a lot of negative stuff about the Wii so this has to be a joke. Right?
