Wii bait?

Rob Lawrence said...

Yes, Wii-bates! Translated - a tax refund stimulus that will allow you to buy a fully loaded Wii gaming system along with a few really fun games. Games include - Fishing for Lobbyists (action/strategy), Trolling for Votes (fantasy/roll playing), and finally Pentagon Pentagon Revolution (dance game that randomizes budget priorities).

Why stop there? Go up to New Hampshire and spend your ski-bate. Can't stand the snow? Take a cruise and spend some time at sea-bate. Hit the local electronics store for a flat screen tv-bate. Go help GM out with a gas guzzling SUV-bate. If you like cheese, have a brie-bate. Don't drink coffee? Have a tea-bate. And if you want to buy junk on the internet, you can certainly cash in your e-bayt.
