Can I play Wii-U games on the original Wii?

I'm trying to write my Christmas list right now, and I really want Assassins creed 3. Problem: I don't own X-box, Ps-3 (or which ever one they're on now) or Wii U. Just an old Wii. I have looked and looked for whether I can play Wii U games on my Wii. The results I have found can be summed up in one word: ZERO! Does anybody have any idea if I can play Wii U games on my Wii or not? If I can't, anyone who lives near me might find a Wii in the dump with a 500 page letter to Nintendo about how much I hate them taped to it.

You cannot play Wii-U games on the original Wii. This is because the release of a reconfigured model removed Nintendo GameCube compatibility. Since then, the Wii-U then became the successor.

Darn. I was hoping I could play ac3 without a $400 purchase. (is that the price? I honestly don't know) anyhow, there is no way I can ask my parents to get me a Wii-U for Christmas, they bought me a $2200 gift for my birthday (and yes I still believe my parents don't spoil me, have you seen how demanding the are of me? Didn't think so.) and I feel like $400 would be too much to ask for a Christmas gift.
