Where-in Maul recounts his holiday, makes a bold fashion statement, and has a day of it with his favorite physician.
I only got one Wii game for Christmas, but it was Mario Galaxy, so I
was happy enough with that. My family, typically rife with squabbles
during the holidays, were all joined together to revel in Wii Sports

and why exactly does Mario have a stethoscope help up to my junk

remember when there was a day when you couldn’t find a Mega Man or
Castlevania shirt? Now we can! The only thing more amazing than the

medication in the game of his own name. Often in my youth, I dreamed
what his practice must be like. Let me show you what I always dreamed
this Brooklyn plumber turned fungus doctor’s offices must be like…
