a bearded dragon playing Ant Crusher. My second favorite part: the lizard looking at his owner all, "A little help here? I don't have thumbs." My real favorite part: the soundtrack, which is the music from old-school Super Mario Bros. I don't know why, but that song brings me joy; my brother and I used to sing it while we were doing the dishes. (On Thanksgivings, we usually wound up singing the entire game.)I love CNET's post earlier today about
This is how I wound up on YouTube for over an
hour, giggling like a sugared-up child at mash-ups of cats and Super
Mario music. You can run through them a lot faster since I've gathered
my 7 favorites all in one place for you.
1. SUPER MARIO CAT (milradon)
A black cat, banished to the bathroom, jumps at the doorknob -- and hits coins instead.
2. Super Mario cats (ryanhashairyeyes)
Ryan's felines + a Chinese yo-yo = hilarity.
3. Cat plays Super Mario Bros. (jsindal)
If by "plays," you mean "is green-screened onto, and doesn't really do anything except look perplexed by Mario's incessant sproinging around." For some reason that makes it even funnier.
In which tiny Mario becomes a cat toy for Stinky.
5. NSFW: A Cat Riding A Turtle With Super Mario? (zyxworld)
Look out for the salty language -- but if you can live with a few F-bombs, the fluffy kitten riding the equally unconcerned turtle is worth it.
6. Super mario Drama Prairie Dog (Hotelfboy55)
The only thing this meme mash-up is missing is a double rainbow.
7. Keyboard Cat Plays Mario (spudz555)
The effects on this one made my eyes twitch, but it's a cute idea.
