PETA Not Happy with Mario’s Tanooki Skin, Nintendo Responds Intelligently
Not sure how I missed this, but apparently PETA has a problem with Nintendo’s Super Mario 3D Land launch.

Super Mario Bros. Wedding Invitations: Will You-a Mario Me?

Super Mario Bros. Wedding Invitations: Will You-a Mario Me?
Why is it that every wedding I get invited to seems to involve long, drawn-out, hyper-religious ceremonies and readings of old poetry? Somehow I manage to miss out on all the awesome geek weddings, like this Super Mario Bros.-themed

Mario, Link and Samus Model Kits: Nintendo, Assemble!
Nintendo should partner with Namco Bandai and Flickr user/designer/future toy magnate Ty Lettau and make these model kits a reality. They could name it Ninpla. I only want 1% share of all your earnings in exchange for that name.
