Surprise!  Wednesday comic!  I’m going to be traveling out of the country tomorrow on flights and such and felt like updating today since tomorrow I’ll be indisposed with no clue about my internet access.  Nothing wrong with a comic a day early, right?  So if I don’t seem as responsive to comments and stuff, that’s why.  I’ll get to those as soon as I can.

Nintendo never truly delved into the relationship between Mario and Toad.  I mean, come on.  He had to know the princess wasn’t in those castles, right?  He knew who he’d find at the end of those horrific trials.  It’s clear that Toad was awful at staying out of trouble and Mario kept getting calls to come bail him out.  Super Mario Brothers is really the story of Mario’s unrequited love for Toad and you’ll never convince me otherwise.  Princess schmincess.  Did you see the look on Mario’s face when he finally saved the Princess?  He’s not happy at all.  There is NO emotion there.

While you’re reeling in shock from this revelation, how about reeling in the direction of the Facebook like button in the sidebar and doing Peppermint Helmet a solid.  You can also vote for it at Topwebcomics, too!  It’ll get you a 1-up!
