    These are the stress relief mushrooms being sold by FireBox. They come in Fly Agaric (pictured above), enoki, king trumpet and matsutake varieties, and cost $9.50 apiece. Most of them look like penises. They make the perfect de-stresser for the person who's always dreaming o... / Continue →

    Okay so they're not all power-ups, but they are all items from Mario games. I just didn't want to run the title onto two lines because sometimes I get real OCD about things like that and this was one of those times. Per artist Elizabeth Sherry: Since making mock classical pa... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE, but it's a Smurf -- they're supposed to be small! Ever wondered what a Smurf might look like in real life? Well fear not you f***ing lunatic, because artist Nate Hallinan is on the job. Per 'damn Nate gave this a lot of thought': The Smur... / Continue →

    This is "bioartist" Jae Rhim Lee wearing her 'Mushroom Death Suit', which, despite the misleading name, is NOT a costume from the Super Mario franchise. No, it was designed to decompose a human body after death by consuming it with growing shiitake and oyster mushrooms. Alter... / Continue →

    Pfft -- do those pants LOOK square to you? A new mushroom that "lives in the rain forest, under a tree" *puts gun in mouth* was recently discovered in Borneo and scientists have decided to name it after Spongebob Squarepants because of its similarity to the perpetually high se... / Continue →

    This is 'Mario', a recent movie short by Joe Nicolosi shown at SXSW that reimagines Mario in real life (specifically, as an indie-movie). Granted that's not the most original concept, but the execution is top-notch (not to confused with side-notch, which is when you poke an ex... / Continue →

    This is a copy of the official termination form of some assistant manager from a Domino's in Whoknows, Orcares, USA. The important part is I happen to know it's one of you. So, yeah -- go ahead and fess up (also, try using your old employee-discount to order me an extra-large... / Continue →

    Baking: I'm not good at it. Wake-n-baking: I'm an allstar. But when I am doing some actual cooking I usually only cover myself with enough to protect my johnson from any scalding oil (typically a game-worn NBA athletic sock I've pre-stretched over a milk jug). But that's me.... / Continue →

    Graphic artist Mathijs Sterrenburg (whose favorite video game is Legend of Zelda, FTW!) went and created 120 different variations of the power-up mushroom from the Super Mario franchise. These are them (well, 30 of them, the rest are after the jump). Damn -- how cool would it... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what Mario looks like on the inside? Jesus, you're a braver wonderer than I am. But if you have, consider yourself lucky, because here's a peek at the plumber's plumbing courtesy of anatomical artist extraordinaire Jason Freeny. As you can see, there's nothing re... / Continue →

    Some unknown Mario Kart lover went and spraypainted symbols from the game in one of Portland's bike lanes. Why? Cause that shit's poppin', son! Almost makes me want to get a bicycle. Ooooor just drive my car in the bike lane. Look out Lance, daddy's got a blue shell! Hit ... / Continue →

    it's official: Mario is dead and it's all BP's fault. Somebody call Bowser and tell him he can keep the Princess, nobody's coming for her. There, there, Toad, it'll all be okay. No, no it won't either. Which is exactly why I don't feel bad doing this *takes a bite out of To... / Continue →

    Note: Short (2:00) and long (10:00) versions of the video are both after the jump. Mario, like most of us heroes, is an addict. Except instead of Flintstones vitamins and pinball, Mario is into the mushrooms. The hard stuff. Kidding, mushrooms aren't actually hard. They're... / Continue →

    This is a little animated gif of a robot with laser-eyes wielding a missile atop a unicorn trampling a Smurf village. There is nothing okay about that. As a matter of fact, I hate everything about it except the unicorn and the mushrooms. The rest of it can all go to hell and... / Continue →
