Do I Send Flowers or Mushrooms?

I am officially going to Hell. I actually considered snapping a picture with my phone, but that would have been crass. Instead, I'm blogging about it, for all the Internet to see. 'Cause that's so much classier.

I had to run by the mall this morning, and there in the parking lot, in all its shoe-polished glory, was a sedan proclaiming, "RIP MARIO". Now, I know that this is a memorial for someone's lost loved one, but I couldn't help it. I laughed. A lot. All I could think of was an itty bitty Super Mario brother falling off the television screen. Then I texted Thomas, who also laughed. A lot. We are horrible, horrible people.

So, as an atonement, I have cute Mario things to show you. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go pick out the trimmings for my handbasket.

This July, Converse and Nintendo are teaming up to bring you some celebratory Chucks. In honor of Super Mario Bros. 25th anniversary, Converse Chuck Taylor shoes are getting a makeover, complete with itty bitty Marios, the game logo on the tongue, and an invincibility star in place of the Converse All-Star marking. Also available in black. No word on price at time of publication.

Okay, if that's not cute enough for you, how's this: A Super Mario proposal?! Watch for the fireworks. Squee!
