Mario and Luigi: Partners in Crime

Times are a little tougher than normal in Nintendo land currently, but one hardly expects to see Mario and Luigi jacking a cab driver.

Footage on the NY Daily News website shows two men dressed as the Nintendo characters—and a third tuxedo-clad man—emerging from a cab in a gas station on Staten Island in the early morning hours of November 1. Apparently the cab driver asked the men to pay up and get out, but the men ended up roughing up the driver, stealing his money and fleeing the scene…. Mama mia!

    Woulda been funny if they’d nicked the taxi. *Insert Mario Kart joke here*

    No one should be shocked to learn that Mario has a dark side.  Think about it- Mario is a short, stocky Italian-American from New York who stomps his enemies to death.  He’as basically Joe Pesci’s character in Goodfellas.

    lolwut? I remember some years ago another guy dressed like a ninja robbed a gas station and ran away on a bike. He was arrested later, but the rumor said that he carried a ninja sword.

    I´m waiting Fox News´take on this.
