At least she died for something.

It's called dedication.

And a complete waste, as she wasn't even the winner.

The winner, however, is still alive and enjoying her Wii.

Do you think Nintendo will step up to the plate and give the newly orphaned children a Wii?

Actually I am not sure if she was a single mother or not. So I don't know for sure if the children are now orphans.

Nonetheless, Nintendo should come through with a Wii! Of course, I am sure there is a massive lawsuit brewing. And then, alas, the children will have enough money to buy a Wii, a PS3, a Nintendo DS, and an XBox 360. Mission accomplished!

I sure hope the family sues Nintendo! They had to know that the demand for their product would lead to unsafe behavior! And I bet the contamination from second-hand smoke and trans fats contributed to her inability to cope with water poisoning.
