Ah, Peta – You’ve done it again. PETA is very angry with Mario (you know, the lovable video game plumber…) because in the new game Super Mario 3D Land Mario wears a Tanooki suit. The game only went on sale Sunday, and PETA is all over it already. What’s that you say? Mario has been wearing it since 1988? Super Mario Brother 3 for original Nintendo? Well, better late than never I suppose. PETA is pulling no punches either:
“Tanooki may be just a “suit” in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur”
They even went so far as to create their own game in which a skinned, bleeding Tanooki chases Mario trying to get its fur back. It is supposed to make you want to stop wearing fur, but it makes me want to eat Doritos and play on my PlayStation. PETA however is hip to what the kids are doing, and knows how to talk to them:
”This winter, everyone can give raccoon dogs and other fabulous animals a 1-UP by keeping our wardrobes fur-free.”
Ah yes PETA, you are very, very crafty…
NHL start Teemu Selanne is set to become just the third player in NHL history to average a point a game after the age of 40. He has his team clinging to a playoff birth in the ultra tight western conference. Does the Internet respect this? No. Will the Internet let him hide his past – lets say – “poor choices”? Absolutely not. Despite a hall of fame career he will now undoubtedly be known as that dope dressed like Mario in that crazy add.
