If you're even remotely familiar with Twitter's veritable hellscape, you've probably seen a meme in which gamers take pictures of their Switch console docked with a game disc from another platform on top; a metaphor for the user's desire for a game to arrive on the Switch.
We're certain you'll agree that it's very droll, but ultimately a harmless way of attracting a few likes and retweets, but what if you placed a Switch cart on the Wii U's disc drive instead? It's quite possible, but here's what one owner in North America had to deal with when their son got his hands on both systems.
Jose A Cruz posted images of a damaged Wii U console in order to remove a bunch of Switch carts from the disc drive in a tweet. While it isn't possible to see all of them, we can see that three of the four are Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Mario Party Superstars, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
It's anyone's guess how this happened. Perhaps the owner's son mistook the Switch carts for the Wii U? Could it be an act of rebellion? Regardless, we're just picturing the shocked look on the owner's face when they realized where their missing Switch carts were!
Fortunately, everything came to an end on a good note; the Wii U disc drive appears to be working fine, and the Switch carts have been safely removed with no sign of damage. Good days!
If you have children, especially young ones, keep your valuables away from your children. Switch carts may taste somewhat sappy, but that doesn't mean they will end up in other difficult-to-reach places!
