Random: A Wii U owner stuffs a bunch of switch carts into the disc drive

Random: A Wii U owner stuffs a bunch of switch carts into the disc drive ...

If you're even remotely familiar with Twitter's veritable hellscape, you'll have no doubt seen a meme in which gamers take pictures of their Switch console docked with a game disc from another platform resting on top; a metaphor for the user's desire to see a game port of that game on the Switch.

We're sure you'll agree that it's a pretty harmless way of attracting a few likes and retweets, but what if you put a Switch cart on the Wii U's disc drive instead? It's unfortunate that one family in North America had to deal with after their son got his hands on both systems.

Jose A Cruz shared images of a ruined Wii U console in order to remove a bunch of Switch carts from the disc drive in a tweet. While it's difficult 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.

Anyone's guess on how exactly this happened? Perhaps the owner's son assumed the Switch carts would work on the Wii U? Perhaps it was 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!

The Wii U disc drive appears to be working fine, and the Switch carts have been safely removed, so thanks for the feedback!

Attempt to follow this cautionary tale if you have children - especially young ones - make sure to keep your valuables away from children. Switch carts might taste weird, but that doesn't mean they'll end up in other difficult-to-reach spots!
