Everybody Loves Gaming?

Every young boy's dream

Why is it that moms always refer to "Nintendo" as "Intendo?" In fact, to them, any video game is "Intendo." Is "Nintendo" any more of a foreign word than "Intendo?" Yet all moms, throughout time (at least since the mid-80s), have called it that. Is it some gene they're born with or is it merely a typo in the "Mom Handbook" they're all given? I mean, it's not like young boys say "Uisinart" or "Acuum cleaner."

This pondering occured to me because Patricia Heaton (Albertsons Uber-Mom) just talked about her kids playing "Intendo" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
