Nintendo patents ridiculous football controller

Not content with imaginearing a blow-up horse-based Wii controller earlier in the month, Nintendo’s wacky funsters have now patented a pathetic football thing for the motion-based console.

You put the Wiimote inside it, then run around your living room pretending you are John Madden. About 190 years ago.

Best bit? You can “throw” it. Hey, Nintendo? It’s time to do the honourable thing.
