    NWTD: Mario in "not Italian" shocker
    Friday, 29 August 2008
    The people of Italy have finally received copies of the NES game Mario and they are furious. Due to an administrative error, the entire country have been without the legendary computer game and all it sequels. The Italian government spokesman Giovanni Italioni issued called a press conferance to express its disgust.



    "We are-a furious with-a the game in-a question. We-a feel that it is-a an offensive stereotype of-a the Italian people. Furthermore, we are-a also furious that-a he is-a a plumber. We-a Italians would-a never resort to-a plumbing. We-a have no plumbers in-a Italy. The fact that-a he is-a a plumber means-a that he is-a not Italian"

    We approached Shigeru Miyamoto and asked him about his error in making an Italian plumber:

    "In hindsight, its obvious that there is no such thing as a plumber in Italy, I mean just look at Venice. Any city where you have to take a canoe to work clearly has no plumbers. I'll admit that I had never been to Italy before I made Mario but I had a rough idea of what the Italians were like due to seeing a few Italian people on the television. I apologise to the Italian people unreservedly and hope that there is no hard feelings."


    The Italian government has yet to issue a response.
