Super Mario Bros 3. Never Happened, and Other Theories: "Over at Albotas, my buddy Brownkidd picked up on the revelation that Super Mario Bros. 3 never happened. Obviously it’s a video game, but as the illustration above suggests, it’s deeper than that. The whole game was a show, its characters the actors. No one was ever in peril and Bowser never really kidnapped Princess with his band of Koopalings. Now, this is not a new story; the image above has popped up on Digg a couple of times before, but I can’t figure out the origin. In any case, this theory deserves a little reflection, as it isn’t the only time when Mario was merely playing the part."
