Interesting. Cover a small percentage of the girl with a table, hide the cleavage and I actually noticed that there was another character and some words there!

Okay, I've been gaming since the early 80s, and I'm at a loss, who is that girl? And wouldn't his original girlfriend Daisy (from Donkey Kong) or Princess Peach (from the Super Mario series of games) have something to say about this?

I love the art, Becca, but I think Luigi would be a better fit for this, since he's always treated as second-class, even when he's starring in the game (Mario is Missing & Luigi's Mansion).

Wasn't it Pauline in Donkey Kong, and Daisy in Super Mario Land? There have been some hints that Luigi and Daisy are now an item, even though he wasn't in SML at all.

Argh, thanks Nathan. That's what I get for using my faulty memory instead of Wikipedia for video game info.

Daisy, Pauline, and Peach... how can a fat, short plumber get so many babes?

Mayren-
Thank you for being too sweet! Glad you dig the banner!

Arkonbey-
Ha!

Anon-
The girl is not actually supposed to be anyone...which on second thought may have been funnier. I stand by Mario though in a visual sense. I love the way his short little legs hang off the booth :)And Mario is constantly getting tail for some reason...maybe it's cause plumbers have steady paydays ;) Luigi certainly would have worked though!

Nathan-
Sirs I am out geeked here, I've always played video games but never got deep enough to master alot of trivia and gaming knowledge.

Yeah, I have problems. I also own the Super Mario Bros. Super Show on DVD.

Luigi has longer legs, so I wonder if they'd actually touch the floor?
