Wii Fit + Butter + Stairs = Fail

In the past, there have been quite a number of cases involving the Wii Fit and injury due to plain carelessness. Here is another story involving the wonderful Wii Fit. A Reddit user by the name of sign_in_singalong posted his story after over hearing the story of a funny incident.

So I was in the ER with the girlfriend who was not feeling well.

So these two bogan chicks come in (bogan is an Australian term, and they are similar to US rednecks or British chavs, I guess). One of them has hurt her foot. The doctor wants to know what happened while he examines the foot, you know, in the small-talk way that doctors care about their patients.

They had been drinking and apparently the girls have a flight of stairs at home. They also had a Wii Fit board. They thought it would be fun to ride the Wii Fit board down the flight of stairs. Needless to say, that didn’t work too well.

So they got a stick of butter from the fridge and cut it up and stuck the butter on to the feet of the Wii Fit board.

Unsurprisingly, this worked a bit too well and the female in question broke her foot. Badly. My girlfriend, who had terrible abdominal pain, started laughing, which made the pain worse. The doctor just nodded and told the one with the sore foot that it was badly broken and would need surgery and then looked at my girlfriend, who was in real pain not self-inflicted, and had this “sorry” look on his face.

I’m guessing using the Wii Fit to do exercise just wasn’t good enough for them.
