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 the same game arrive on the Switch.
We're sure you'll agree that it's a nice way to send a few likes and retweets, but what if you plugged a Switch cart into a Wii U disc drive instead? That's exactly what one owner in North America had to deal with after his son acquired both systems.
Jose A Cruz posted photos of a destroyed Wii U console in order to dispose of a bunch of Switch carts from the disc drive in a tweet. While it isn't possible to see all of the four, we can see that three of the four are Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Mario Party Superstars, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
Who knows how this happened? Perhaps the owner's son mistook the Switch carts for the Wii U? Perhaps it was a rebellion? Whatever the case, we're just picturing the shocked look on the poor owner's face when they realized where their missing Switch carts were.
Glad to report that everything went well; the Wii U disc drive appears to be working fine, and the Switch carts have been safely removed with no sign of damage.
Nevertheless, please keep your valuables away from your children, especially if they are young. Switch carts might taste awful, but that doesn't mean they will end up in other difficult-to-reach places!
