Nintendo to Dubya: Train your Brain!

Joe Conley on Saturday, 08 July 2006.

To celebrate his 60th birthday, Nintendo sent George W. Bush a new Nintendo DS Lite and a copy of "Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!"

The letter included with the package reads:

"Dear President Bush:

Happy Birthday!

Don't worry, turning 60 is an exciting milestone. As you know, you've joined millions of other baby boomers in an invigorating new decade of your life. And, like many boomers, you may be looking for ways to keep your mind sharp. That's where we come in.

Please accept our gift of a new Nintendo DS Lite system and a copy of Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day...It's obvious you don't have a lot of time to play games, which makes Brain Age such a great activity for you - just a few minutes a day with more than 15 daily training tests will help keep your mind sharp."

No word yet on whether Mr. Bush was able to actually read the letter, or needed Cheney to read it to him.
