Hold your Wee for a Wii (and Die)


In the “saddest story ever” category, this little number from the New York Times is nominated.

A woman dies during a radio station contest. The prize was a Nintendo Wii. She was hoping to win it for her kids.

The contest? Drink as much water as possible without going to the bathroom.

She died of water intoxication.

Too High a Price for Wii? by Thomas Zeller for the New York Times.
