Outraged mum recalls Nintendo wordplay filth trauma

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

An "outraged" mum has recounted how a Wii game based on Channel 4's Countdown blasted SHITHEADS into the innocent face of her wide-eyed sprog.

The Sun explains that Victoria Smith and son Oliver were enjoying some Nintendo wordplay in their Hampstead home when the "conundrum" SHAHSITED clicked over to give them an eyeful of filth.

An "angry" Smith, 30 fumed: "I couldn't believe my eyes as the word was slowly unveiled as an obscene insult. Oliver is a really bright kid and we play this game to help him build up his word bank.

"He was already asking what the word meant. My husband Daniel had to rush him out of the room."

Mercifully, by the time the Sun tabloid emergency response team arrived at the scene of the outrage, Oliver had recovered sufficiently to pose in front of the telly with the offending conundrum. You can see the resulting snap of the evidently traumatised lad here.

Channel 4, Nintendo and game maker Koch* were remaining tight-lipped yesterday. ®
