Dear Reggie

Dear Reggie,

Thanks for the autographed, um, photograph! You’re my favorite video game company president and it was a thrill to receive your letter in the mail yesterday. A thrill, I tell you!

Over the years, Nintendo has provided me with ceaseless excitement. In just 2008 alone, I was lucky enough to play one whole Wii game, the classic Super Smash Bros. Brawl. As much as I wanted copies of Wiggle Your Wiimote Randomly At Some Plants On The Screen 4 and Play This Fake Guitar In Some Sort Of Vague Attempt At Rhythm 6, current economic situations prevent me from being the Nintendo fan I truly want to be.

I hope you’ll accept my sincerest apologies for this discretion. I hope to return to being the blind Nintendo apologist I’ve always been in 2009. I’m really looking forward to the new slate of Wii games for this calendar year. In particular, Bow & Arrow Attack 12 and Bowling 2009 look awesome!

Your faithful servant,


PS. If you happen to run into Robert Bach or Jack Tretton, or whomever is captaining those sinking ships these days, tell them to suck it for me. Thanks!


  1. i wonder if tristan got one of these, he only buys nintendo consoles and games. i'll have to ask him.

  2. How cool is that? They sent you a letter; you see that's great customer service! Perhaps since your son is young he thought you were super cool for getting an autographed photo, I would of played on that.
