How to get a free Nintendo DS
It’s easy – just write to Nintendo and ask them if you can have one. That’s what an 11 year-old Australian girl did, as part of a school lesson about writing letters to companies.
She explained that her favourite games were all on the DS and not the Nintendo Wii that her parents had bought for her, and before long, a complimentary DS was winging its way to her home courtesy of Nintendo’s Australian chiefs.
It wasn't all good news for the young student - she only got a C for her letter, which is fair enough as it's all over the fucking place.
We won’t be around for the next couple of hours – we’ll be busy pretending to be children and penning heartbreaking missives to various makers of fast cars, strong booze and 3D tellies.
