This is an outrage.

You forgot about Mario's brief stint as a carpenter.

I thought they were farmers... What's with the overalls?

Only during the day, at night they're cross dressing tranny hookers.

When's the last time Mario did any plumbing? He's ethnically cleansing Goombas out of the Mushroom Kingdom while taking side jobs as things like race car driver, doctor, and royal concubine.

Did they clarify that the princess is indeed in another castle?

The plumbing thing is represented entirely by going in pipes.

Or perhaps his only real job is actor.

Or things coming out of pipes, but yeah. I was always disappointed that Nintendo didn't license Pipe Dream and make a Mario version of it.

Mario was a carpenter. He only got into the plumber business because his loser brother couldn't hack it as an accountant.

I was more shocked to learn that  Hiroshi Yamauchi had passed. Must've been a busy day at work.

These are facts, Otto. I looked them up.

Gotta go with the Washington Post to recognize who is a plumber and who isn't.

But at least Bob Hoskins had a pretty good Brooklyn accent...

...which Nintendo then retconned into an Italian accent, invalidating pretty much the entire American canon.

I always figured it was PTSD from the whole Donkey Kong thing, like he couldn't set foot on a construction site without grabbing the first hammer in sight and swinging it at everyone like a madman, so he had to get a job somewhere else.

The New York Times refers to the lead singer of "Paradise by the Dashboard Lights" as Mr. Loaf.

And what ever happened to Princess Pauline???
 
2013-09-27 05:26:37 PM
Sometimes I wonder why Dan Quayle invented the internet at all.

She's not a princess, but she made her return in 2006, just to get abducted again.
