Bwa ha ha ha ha!!
For those of you who don’t know, the talented folks over at Later Levels host an event called Question of the Month. As the name implies, a question is asked each month and a group of great bloggers submit answers. These answers are then compiled into a poll for everyone to vote on, and a winner is chosen based on the results. Sounds like a fun and friendly competition, eh? It sure does!
Yay! My brain seems to be slightly functioning again. I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I’ve been a little quiet around here lately… I also skipped out on last month’s Question of the Month because I couldn’t think of an answer, for some reason. Whatever! Right now words are being typed as I think things so I’m just rolling with it. Oh and here’s my answer for this month’s festive question:
Which video game character would do a better job than Santa?
And to that I say – Jolly Ol’ Bowser, the King Koopa himself. You might be thinking: “Um, why? Isn’t he a bad dude who likes kidnapping princesses and attacking innocent plumbers?” Well, truthfully, nobody’s perfect or can ever hope to compete with the overpowered Santa Claus (and his smug reindeer squad). But, I’ve always loved Bowser for as long as I can remember, and I wished he would grab that pretty princess for good.
Playing Mario games around the holiday season was a thing I did a lot, so Bowser and Christmas have a special connection for me. He also has a lot of great qualities that I think would make him the perfect Santa Claus candidate.
Okay, I had a LONG day at work and I’m running out of brain energy to type things, so I’ll just get on with this. Here’s 100 words on why I think Bowser is ze better Santy:
Owner of a fleet of speedy airships, and tenacious leader of an endless army of Parakoopas… who needs a tiny sleigh pulled by boring flying reindeer? Big bad Bowser is NOT fitting down any chimneys, but his loyal minions would unquestionably jump in to deliver the goods. Bowser definitely has the resources to beat Santa at world gift giving, but why would he do it? Simple! Bowser is not all evil. He loves his son more than kidnapping Peach and would do whatever it takes to make Jr. proud of him for once – by finally besting a man wearing red.
