Suspense of Disbelief
This doesn't even make sense. They don't have dogs in the Mushroom Kingdom.
I'm sorry, I'll buy into a lot of things, but this is beyond me. Where would a Piranha Plant even run into a Pug? I've never seen a Pug in any of the games before. Why now? How'd it get there? What's it doing there? Pugs aren't especially physically talented; how did it not just die at the feet of the first Goomba it ran into? This just creates more questions than it answers.Oh, no. Is there like a Pug Suit in the next SMB game? Like, Mario puts on this ratty thing and his face gets all pushed in to the point where he can't breathe and his tongue is too long for his face?
What special abilities does it confer? Wheezing? Having eyes that bug out of his head and constantly ooze? I'm not really sure I'm on board with this new direction of the franchise.
Wear this shirt: To World 7-1.
Don't wear this shirt: To World 2-1.
This shirt tells the world: "If pugs could talk, they'd only say, 'Please kill me.' Why are people still breeding these poor monstrosities?"
We call this color: Be careful! There are wild Piranha Plants in the tall Grass Green!
