If you haven't already seen this, watch it. It's a video of a guy riding a mechanical Yoshi trying to collect Mario coins on the side of the street. And, from the look of dude's coin collecting abilities, it's fairly obvious he stole the previous 89 from somebody else. Damn, have you ever considered collecting coins with a raccoon tail instead? "I have, I fell out of a tree and broke both arms." Rough! "You're telling me -- I had to give up coin-collecting because the Mushroom Kingdom refused to make warp pipes handicapped accessible." Okay now you're depressing me.
Hit the jump for the laughing at other people's misfortune.
Thanks to khz, who agrees losing a life trying to collect coins is counter-intuitive.
