For more than twenty years, an Italian plumber by the name of Mario has been trapped in a mushroom kingdom. Now, I'm not a psychiatrist, but being in these surroundings for more than two decades would turn anyone a little crazy. So it was no surprise to see that the creative bunch of Something Awful forum goons decided to draw attention to the plight of this poor tradesman. By drawing pictures of Mario at his most insane, they hoped to raise attention and make people aware of the consequences that come from jumping on turtles, mushrooms and dragon-like things for a considerable period of your life. With enough resources, hard work and yes, even love, the goons are confident that we can bring Mario home.

This space-age device is a cardboard box with two holes in it. The operative sticks a hand in one end. The contact inserts a hand in the other end. With both hands shielded from prying eyes, a secret handshake can commence.
I'm ruined. Every dream in my life has been dashed. Fantastic product! Would buy again!
