Wii knee
 n.— «It is being reported that people who picked up the habit of playing Wii games, innocently thinking that they are just playing some silly little sports game, are finding themselves with the fractures and sprains, that typically occur in the sports that the very games they play imitate. Researchers at a teaching hospital in Leeds, UK are calling the epidemic, “Wii Knee” (not to be confused with the similarly pronounced and possibly applicable derogatory term.)» —“Are YOU Suffering From “Wii Knee?”” by Joseph Baxter G4tv.com Dec. 22, 2008.
