I still play Animal Crossing, but not nearly as much as I did during the height of the COVID pandemic. I still go in to collect bells or Nook Miles or whatever you can pick up along the way. I’ve made all the major milestones in the game, and picked up the latest DLC, which includes the Happy Home Paradise. One of the side trips is a fast trip to a random island that costs 1,000 Nook Miles. More than once I’ve come across small water features that look like dicks on the landscape. This one is a somewhat droopy dick. I bring this up because my island, which is named ClusterFck, was sanctioned by Nintendo over the name I’d given my island (and in which I take pride in). The only way they found out about it was when I submitted my little island as a dream. Here’s the content of Nintendo’s sanctioning email.

I named my island after my 20-plus years experience as a defense industry employee and what I’d experienced, especially in the last five or so years before my retirement. In spite of what the email says, the dream had been up for at least six months. My name is a cynical joke, nothing more. I would have spelled it out completely but for the fact there aren’t enough characters. This doesn’t stop Nintendo from taking my money every year, or allowing me to spend money on additional games.
If you think this isn’t titillating enough, then wait until the fall when in-game collectable elegant mushrooms start popping up underneath your islands’ trees. There’s some serious dicks for you.
