Plumber Loses Job

Plumber Loses Job
It’s getting harder to find good help. Well-know plumber Mario has been fired by Nintendo.

” A newly-uploaded profile … of everyone’s favorite Player One describes Mario as having worked as a plumber in the distant past, suggesting he’s a plumber no longer.”

“But to remove Mario from his plumbing origins is a disservice to the fans who fell in love with Nintendo’s hero long before his days of racing, playing tennis, or flying through space. Mario is a video game hero we can all relate to—one that gets his hands dirty under the occasional sink.”

— “Mario is no longer a plumber,” Jean-Luc Bouchard, Quartz
