Wario's Heritage


welcome back!


Do you think it's funny that mushrooms have make Italians normal sized
in Super Mario Bros.? Are they saying that Italians are all really

Actually, it makes them giant, and then gianter

Look at Mario in Mario 64. He doesn't look normal sized.

I mean, at least Luigi is of respectable height.

Is he in manhattan around other normal people in mario 64? You only
ever seen mario around luigi, who is the same size as him but a bit

Yeah, so there are some short italians and some average size ones

I think mario is a midget.

wait, We've seen him next to Solid Snake.

WE haven't. I don't know what YOU'VE been seeing during your heroin
induced comas.

Look, The princess is taller even! And Luigi has to duck down just to
see eye-to-eye with his brother!

Princess isn't human

Yes she is

No, she isn't. SHe's the princess of mushroom kingdom, her father, the
king, clearly seen in Mario 3, is most definitely some form of shroom
humanoid thing

She doesn't have a tail, nor does she wear a mushroom cap. She is the
dictator of mushroom kingdom after ousting an oppressive government of




I hear they don't even worship mushroom Jesus, let alone the regular one

You don't know anything about her species

Cause she's a human woman, not because she's a shroom hybrid thing

Yeah, well, the alien in Species looked human too, but if you confuse
her with a human woman at the bar when yhou're cruising for chicks you
end up dead.

Just cause she looks human doesn't make it so. Only Mario and Luigi
are human in that world

What about Wario and WaLuigi?

Okay, WaLuigi could be an evil elf monster thing... but Wario is human

THey're like super evil clones, they're only as human as the alternate
dimension version of evil you...

Not evil twins, evil alternate dimension versions.. maybe human, maybe not.

Wario was Mario's childhood friend!

Is he?

You can't just say shit like that. You need to cite a source.

Nintendo Power once stated that Wario is Mario's cousin

If we can just start saying shit, I could make up shit too.. "Wario
was only Mario's childhood friend because he was genetically
engineered by Mario's genius genetic engineer/ plumber on the side
father, and is not genetically compatible with human beings only
having a 44 chromosome base set"

I had read that they were friends from childhood but Mario got his own
game but became jealous.

Why would Mario become jealous after getting his own game?

states the cousin angle.

The word cousin could be used metaphorically.

Well, regardless he's Italian at least.

The site doesn't even say anything about him being human, it
specifically says that no one knows where he is born, only that he's
Italian, which doesn't mean anything, because I have vinegar that is
Italian. My vinegar is a cousin to Mario in their shared heritage, but
the vinegar sure isn't human, either.



Pork chops go upscale in this recipe hot off the set at Primal Grill
III. Note: you can also make it with veal chops.

Method: Direct grilling
Advance preparation: 1 hour to make the onion jam.
Serves 4.

For the onions:

1 pound small torpedo onions, cipollinis, pearl onions, or shallots
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (optional)
Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups dry red wine
1 cup balsamic vinegar, or to taste
1 cup honey, or to taste
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons, 1/2 stick) unsalted butter
4 gorgeous pork chops, preferably long-bone, Heritage-breed (each 1 to
1-1/4 inches thick and 10 to 12 ounces)
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley

1. Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to high.

2. Peel the onions, leaving most of the stem end intact. (The helps
hold the onion together during cooking.) If you're feeling ambitious,
toss the onions with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Grill the onions
until well browned on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes per side. For ease in
turning, you may wish to thread the onions on bamboo skewers before
grilling. You can grill the onions at a previous grill session. This
step is optional, but it will give the sauce a rich smoke flavor.

3. Place the onions (grilled or raw if you've omitted the previous
step) in a large deep saucepan and add the wine, vinegar, honey, and 3
tablespoons butter. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil the sauce
until the onions are tender and the wine, vinegar, and honey have
cooked down to a syrupy glaze, 6 to 10 minutes. If the onions become
soft before the sauce has thickened, transfer them to a plate with a
slotted spoon, and continue boiling the sauce until thick and syrupy,
then add them back. Correct the seasoning, adding salt to taste and
vinegar or honey as needed. The onions should be a little sweet, a
little sour, and very flavorful. The onions can be cooked several
hours—or even a day ahead—and reheated just before serving.
Immediately before serving, stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
You should wind up with about 1-1/4 cups.

4. Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to high. Have one
grill zone on medium. Brush and oil the grill grate.

5. Generously season the chops on both sides with salt and pepper.

6. Arrange the chops on the grill grate running on the diagonal to the
bars of the grate. Grill until nicely browned on the outside and
cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side, depending on the desired
degree of doneness. Give each chop a quarter turn half way through on
each side to lay on a crosshatch of grill marks. If the chops brown
too much on the hot zone, move them to the medium zone.

7. Transfer the chops to a platter or plates. Reheat the onion
mixture. Spoon it over the chops and sprinkle with the parsley if
using. Serve at once.
