Giant Bomb always breaks the real news.

To compare, I licked an iPod Nano, a Logitech Harmony remote, a Fitbit, and an LG Watch Sport.

Quality journalism right there...

Great job, Nintendo. Now teens are just going to have contests on who can keep a Switch game in their mouth the longest without vomiting.

I would like to participate in this discussion by supplying an image of the actual original licker, unfortunately that image is probably against forum rules.

Is it just a coating or is the actual material developed to taste bad?

Because if it's just a coating, stick with me here, what if the actual cartridge tastes good? So good that during QA Nintendo discovered too many of the testers putting the cartridges in their mouths. So instead of sourcing a different material they just coated the batches with the bad tasting coating. We'll need to test the cartridges under repeated lickings to determine what it really tastes like underneath it all.

Drew spoke to the press about his meme.

This, of course, would be the most logical course of action. Any volunteers who already got their Switch and are willing to lick for science?

How has the GIF of Jeff putting that cartridge in his mouth not been turned into a meme of him putting all kinds of random shit in his mouth?

I feel like the internet is falling behind.

I got to convince my pre-ordering coworker to have a lick. So that has to count for something right?
