Super Mario Bros
But if you were a kids in the 80s/90s not in Japan, you grew up being taught a different story by the Mario games.
Super Mario Bros 1 was still a world carefully built to teach you the same supportive lesson
Super Mario Bros 2 however was like meeting four friends and then realising they're pod people wearing masks to look like your friends. Absolutely nothing is right, its all a fever dream. You're not Luigi, these aren't things Luigi would do, why are you so into gardening and what is this place WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY FRIENDS, shh no dont shout that, keep it cool, play their sick game, dont let them know you're on to them, why are we making me throw eggs at that trans dinosaur? Who's that mouse and why does he get to be so cool? Keys? Turnips? Bombs? these aren't mario things oh god when will this nightmare end.
Super Mario Bros 3 was then a lesson in being gaslit that shhhh shhhhh its ok, there there, it was all a dream, it wasn't even a real see? Real Mario is back now, its all better and back to normal look, even though you do look and ALL the people from that nightmare are now just casually hanging around in normal Mario games as if they've always been there and you're the one who is wrong and Birdetta, that trans dinosaur will now get wheeled out every once in a while when the world of women's Mario sports needs menacing.

Super Mario Bros 1 was a world carefully built to teach you fundamentals and awareness while making you feel clever and to help you accomplish your goal and feel the hero.
Super Mario Bros 2 (The Lost Levels) was a lesson to say: but the world isn't going to help you be that hero, in fact it will often work against you and youll have to fight for it; with the designers flat out bullying you and showing you that they decide when you get to feel good in this world - that fluidity and power you felt in Super Mario Bros 1 was only because they allowed it. It was a lesson that you will have to really strive to accomplish your goals, a lesson of super high work ethic and commitment.
Super Mario Bros 3 was a lesson in flying and pretending like all the trauma and bullying of Super Mario Bros 2 wasn't a thing, what are you talking about silly.
well i've heard what cumslut69 has to say on Columbo and im sad to say they failed to make a quip about how Columbo will leave you a quivering mess because he has the uncanny ability to keep on coming back for just one more thing
death of the author? more like la petit mort de l'auteur
"Teasing definitely happens because Columbo can pick up when you're needing him, although you swear up and down you don’t have those kinds of tells. Yet somehow he always seems to know when you need an extra bit of attention- his hand stroking your back, giving your thigh a light squeeze, and even a little smack on the backside when he can get away with it. It drives you mad because he’ll act like nothing happened while giving you a big goofy grin."
"not just an idiot, but a credible idiot."
yes boys i'm both witty and araldite
