When I was your age, we played video games uphill in the snow both ways

I've never understood why Italy didn't invade Japan after the release of the original Super Mario Bros.

I'm pretty sure the portrayal of Italians in that game qualifies as a blatant act of war, or at the very least, a serious act of provocation.

Maybe Italy just assumed Japan had a bunch of dudes who could smash bricks with their heads and pull bouncing fireballs out of their pockets to chuck at people, and that they'd send those guys over in a counterattack.

Upon further reflection, that would've been my assumption.

  1. Maybe Italy just assumed Japan would be like Level 7.1 and they couldn't be bothered.
