For the record...

It's pronounced "Super Mario Brothers".  You *must* say "brothers", not "bros". "Bros.", with the period at the end, means it's an abbreviation of "brothers".

Anyone that disagrees is a moron. You don't say "murse" for "Mrs."

And it's pronounced "Maahrio". Not "Marry-o".

People that say "Super Marry-o Bros" should be sterilized.

McGrits: The Mario Brothers game was a lot of fun in the arcade. Those sewer crabs were downrite mean little buggers.


You should have gone to an above-ground arcade.

Who hurt you? Was he wearing a Mario costume?


I was wearing the Mario costume. She was wearing a "Sloth" from "The Goonies" costume. It was a weird night.

Listen, and understand.  That Donkey is out there.  It can't be bargained with.  It can't be reasoned with.  It doesn't feel pity, remorse, or fear.  And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until your game is over.

The whole JKR Twitter fiasco has really opened my eyes to the fact I don't need a creator's permission to interpret their work differently. Hello Kitty is a cat, Mario and Luigi are Italian, and everyone in Harry Potter is trans. Suck it.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: TWX: MusicMakeMyHeadPound: Once hardware developed to the point where you could actually draw characters, designers had to figure out what to make. Subconsciously they turned to things they'd absorbed from anime and manga. We were sort of blessed in the sense that foreigners hadn't seen the things we were basing our ideas on.

I wish the article hadn't ended there, it was just starting to get good

At least now we know the inspiration for Maniac Mansion...

Interestingly enough, that was based on the Main House of Skywalker Ranch.


There are hentai tentacles at Skywalker Ranch?

I think if I knew I'd still be on Fark 17 years ago when I was a teenager I probably would have picked a better name
