I believe "It's a spicy meatball" is something Mario actually says in one of the games (for the N64?) or something. At the very least, it's a common line whenever I hear people doing Mario impersonations.

That *is* Mario, right? I will admit I hate video games. I remember I saw something similar to this in a previous derby. I voted for it but then I realized it had a video game reference. I hate when that happens. Like the lying cake shirt. Took the longest time for someone to say to me, "Hey, that's a video game, right?" and I was like, "What?" I felt totally stupid.

I still hate video games.

"That's a spicy-a meatball" is from an old commercial for Alka-Selzter where an actor has to keep eating a meatball and saying the line until he needs something for his upset stomach.

Kinda morbid. At least in the game you could just start over. Mario and Luigi never died. Plus the one glove kind of reminds me of Michael Jackson.

This is not Mario. See the 'G' on the cap? Its georgio. In the late 70's a close personal friend of Shigeru Miyamoto, invented a tragic tale of a kidnapped princess, and our hero georgio, who had to fight many evils in the vain effort to try to save her. The red plant which spewed fire hotter than the sun was the perpetrator of this heinous crime. After the defeat of the plants number 1 minion, A giant Lizard named Reswob, with the princess in Georgio's arms, The great evil showed up, and the events of this shirt took place.

Little is known about what became of the princess, many suspect she was eaten whole along with her beau. Some even hypothesize that the evil plant used her to breed an invincible race of plant monsters that were not constricted to their pipes and could walk on two legs.

Miyamoto, never a fan of tragedies remade the story into what became a happy go lucky videogame, where a character with infinite lives/continues, could always come back until he mustered the skill necessary to defeat the new boss of evil, a Lizard known as Bowser. The evil plant's brethren were relegated to be just an every day run of the mill enemy.

Needless to say The progenitor of the story, Unhappy with the changes made and not receiving any of the profits made, promptly tried to sue Miyamoto.

He was found in his home, apparent death was food poisoning caused by highly toxic mushrooms. Miyamoto's Mario became an international hit. No mention of any character named georgio, or the evil Plant boss was ever mentioned till now.

So you see there is no copyright infringment found here. Nintendo is not going to dig up their shady past in order to bring the lawsuit to bear.

So, it ate the shoes and overalls including buttons, but the hat and glove were going to give it indigestion?! If it's that hungry, it should finish its meal.

The gloves must have been the spicy part. That's why it spit one out.

Mawgy - how perceptive of you to notice the 'G' on the hat. I think we all saw the red hat and thought it was Mario.

Also, I'd never heard about Georgio? Is that for real or did you make it up?

So...

I have 2 Mario/Nintendo shirts already in:

Plumber in the style of Rembrandt
and
Press My Buttons

Do I really need another? I mean my collection is lacking a grass green shirt...

I think I'll sleep on it.

Well, Reswob is bowser backwards so, I'm guessing not.

It isn't supposed to be a 'G', just the left side of the 'M' on the hat (the 'M' is red and outlined with white)

Sweet. Very clever design and to the point.

It's nice to see some cool video game shirts being made.

The key to creating a successful woot shirt: Make it video game related.

I'm only irritated by it now after buying probably half a dozen other game-related shirts.

Just thought I'd let you know that Woot in and of itself is a video game reference. About time you were hittin' the old dusty trail I suppose.

Most people that hate games hate them because they find out they are no good at them.

I'm terrible at games and that's why I love them. True story.

Also, did anyone else get the e-mail from Nintendo today about the new Mario & Luigi game for the DS? The email was titled, "What's short, round, and tastes like a mustache?"

Seriously, Woot. You creep me out sometimes.
