You know, after spending a few hours playing the new Super Mario game on the Wii, it occurred to me that Mario and Luigi were not very good plumbers. I’m not sure why the Mushroom Kingdom has kept them on retainer for so long.
I mean, seriously, have you ever had problems with animals coming out of your pipes? Have you ever seen a place that had pipes just strewn about randomly outdoors where they would do no good at all? Have you ever just suspended a pipe from your ceiling for the hell of it? Plus, I’m sure the EPA would be damn interested to hear about all the pipes just randomly gorging their contents into the water reservoirs. No wonder some of the fish can fly there.
Even going back to the original 1983 Mario bros… crabs coming out of the pipes? I mean, I know some of you have crabs going into your pipes (you know who you are) but has anyone ever seen crabs coming out of them? No wonder Mario spits fire.
