Instructions for Singing and Dancing to the Nintendo Weekly Download Report Song
(1) Stand on your desk and sing that loudly as you read it, lifting first your left foot, and shaking it twice for "It's time again" -- and then your right foot, shaking it twice for "oh time" -- lifting the other leg for each section until you get to the end, and then turn around and shake your bum at your nearest co-worker for "the Nintendo Weekly Download Report! "
(2) Now repeat the process as many times as is necessary to deliver the news to each and every person in the room individually!
