Princess Peach Toadstool is not subtle


When I was a kid, Peach (or Princess Toadstool or whatever the hell you want to call her) was clear:  she needed help.  When I was a teenager, she was subtle:  “I baked a cake.”  Right.  “Cake.”  (The guys in my class used to say, “I will give you cak,” but I’m pretty sure they weren’t talking about cake.)  The point is that by the time Super Mario Galaxy came around, she had dropped all pretense yet still wasn’t going to write it out word for word, but you get the idea.  

No wonder Mario is going so fast!

(In fairness, this is Mario 64, but you get the idea.  Watch the ending!)
