As a gift for his 8-year-old son, Tom Mayhew bought a supposedly brand-new Nintendo DS at a Walmart in Hampton, Virginia on December 23. On Christmas Day, the boy used the console to take pictures of his siblings. When he tried to view the images in the device’s gallery, he found it was already loaded with X-rated photos.

No, the Mayhew family didn’t catch Mario and Princess Peach in the midst of doing terrible things to one another. (Although, for the record, I would totally watch that.) The timestamps on the photos read December 1 – the DS had been presumably purchased and returned by a previous, horny-yet-cost-conscious customer. Walmart has yet to comment.

Some discussion questions: Why would you put porn on a DS? Don’t you have a computer? Or a phone? If you were to put porn on a DS, why wouldn’t you remove it before bringing the device back to the store? Where do you watch porn on a DS? What kind of porn do you watch on a DS? Is it necessarily video game-themed?
