Given that Donald can't enjoy cake today, at least Kirby will be able to later this week.

Considering gas is $7.30 a gallon if the News Editor had a car, is it any wonder North America is down?

The publicly-traded Nintendo released their official financial results for the April to June quarter a few hours ago (the first quarter of the company's fiscal year), with recession fears causing another company to report lower than the same time last year.

All financial indicators reported in yen, a rate of 133.103 yen to 1 US$ is used for comparison only.
