Young Nintendo fan torn between two gift ideas for his birthday, Dad finds the perfect solution

What types of presents did you want when you turned 9 years old? Was a dictionary on the list? Well it was for Yamara99's son.

Yamara99's son was trying to figure out what he should ask for for his birthday. On one hand, he really wanted to ask for a copy of Splatoon. The more studious side of his son thought that a dictionary was the right present to ask for, considering how school studies were important. The young boy went to Yamara99 and told him that he wanted Splatoon, but decided asking for the dictionary was the right thing to do.

Obviously Yamara99 was really touched by this request from his son. Rather than letting him grow up too quickly and only focus on work for his birthday, Yamara99 came up with the perfect solution. In the image above, you can see that Yamara99 printed his own Splatoon entry in the dictionary. Even better, the printed blurb says that it's a couple 'good for one copy of Splatoon'. In other words, Yamara99's son got his dictionary, but he also netted himself that copy of Splatoon! Now that's an awesome father/son relationship! Thanks to Andrew for the heads up.
