    The phrase "Who'da thunk it" appears to have been coined in the 30 ~ 40's in America by Mortimer Snerd who, as well as being slow witted, was a bit of a dummy. Literally. He appeared on the radio show "Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy" and was, of course, a ventriloquist’s dummy.

    If anyone understands how a ventriloquists act works on the radio... please tell me.

    i dont know how ventriloquist radio acts work, (it seems to ruin the point)

    but i dont agree with the article completely. EA has made lots of games for the wii, but there have been no reaaally good ones. Sure there was Godfather and SSX (i <3 SSX) but neither of these games have sold consoles. or even themselves.

    although i agree EA will make good games for the wii in the future, nothing yet has caught the eye of the industry or the eyes of consumers.

    Hmm sounds fun. Pity I have low self confindence. I'm a fairly good singer but I wouldn't for the life of me play SingStar or the likes infront of other people. This game could be a single player choice for me.
