Memo to the audience: YES, I GOT ONE.

As much as I hate to play the Shameless Game Nerd card once again, the fact of the matter is that the national supply of Wii consoles finally reached a level where I could get one with what I consider to be an acceptable minimum level of effort. By which I mean not camping out, paying more than retail on eBay, or risking water intoxication. Combine that with the inevitable but still thrombosis-inducing news that Hillary Clinton has officially announced her presidential run, and, well, you can imagine my state of mind this weekend.

"Luckily" for all of us, the Wii's built-in avatar-creation system, the Mii Creator, features a surprisingly robust set of tools, allowing me to create what I think is a pretty good version of You Are Dumb Dot Net's favorite hateplant mascot.

Unfortunately, since I could not possibly keep up with the hundreds of thousands of Friend Code exchange requests this column could generate, I can't share Fernii with all you other Wii nerds out there. But rest assured, if you play around with the eyebrows enough, all things are possible. Really. Spend as much time as you need in order to get it just right.
