Stolen Pixels #67: A Place for Pie

Shigeru Miyamoto said that Wii Fit was meant to make you "aware of your body" -- making you aware of what a pitiful human being you are is apparently just a bonus.

Suicide MAY be my choice, if I HAVE to exercise.

NOOO liar that's not what mr macdonalds told me =(

I hate stepping on the Wii fit board. "You are overweight". Gee thanks that really makes me want to play with you now.

The worst is the ritual shaming process.

"Golly, you didn't reach your goal. In fact, you gained five pounds! Why did you gain 5 pounds?"

"I don't know."

"You don't know? YOU DON'T F***ING KNOW?! I SUGGEST YOU AND YOUR FAT F***ING FACE TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK DOWN OCCASIONALLY. Just...no, no body test today. Go run laps or something."

"Its my glands!"

"Yeah right fatty, I'm calling the factory ship to cart your whale ass away"

I love the Wii Fit comics.
I'm just wondering, how much truth is there in them? Because I'm thinking of giving it as a present for my sister. :P

Haha one of the best ones yet, in my opinion. Not sure what my choice would be though. Probably suicide!

The last one should've been "All of the above" :D

Some truth. The Wii Fit board is rude at times, and if you gain weight it will demand an explanation: Snacking, Overeating, Late-night snacks, indigestion, etc. All food-based. Even if you're a 200lbs. man and you gain ONE pound. It will then bring that reason up days later.

It's simply too stupid to be your coach, and when it tries the thing is frustrating or insulting.

But it's a really good piece of exercise equipment (small, cheap, and fun) if you just want to burn some energy.

I thoroughly enjoy how 'no' wasn't an option in the third frame.

As always, well done.

dammit, you got to it first!

"Am I right?"

"Yes"

That wii board KNOWS it's right, why does it ask?

To humiliate. To control, to make you CRY!

LOL, that one was the best one ever!!!

its true, Wii Fit IS evil!

I knew it!! Thats why I have my Wii locked in a closet with no light just in case if the moonlight hits it it transformes into a were-Nintendo and savages my 360

Ugh, Wii Fit is definitely an impudent little shit sometimes.

"I'm here to improve your posture and a variety of other passive-aggressive body-positive crap! But if you want the colourful little stamps for your calendar, you're going to have to weigh yourself obsessively every day!"

"You haven't been on in 2 days! NOW YOU WILL CATCH THE FAT. SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE?!"

No, your Wii Fit isn't the only one that acts that way, I'd swear I've seen those very screens, before.

One of the funniest things about Wii Fit is that all it can really test you on is the distribution of weight between your feet, so it behaves as if this is the most important indicator of overall fitness. Out here in the real world, I never have people come up to me and say, "Hey, looking good! Your weight looks really evenly distributed over your left and right feet! Rrrowr." Well, hardly ever.

HAHA! Victory is mine!

(closing the game isn't an option )

Reminds me of playing Wishbringer ion the 80s; you type in something & the games gives you some sass. lol.

It's funny how he says yes XD

Well if you end up not hearing from her for a very long time, and later discovering that she has killed herself in her bathtub from multiple wrist cuts, a bottle of sleeping pills, and an iPod plugged to the wall charger...

Then the Wii Fit would have served its intended purpose.

Excellent.

Am I the only one seeing a top hat on that timer in the last panel? :|
