I remember when I was roommates with Mario. He was an alright guy (a little too much into mushrooms, but he did say they were for medicinal purposes). Anyhoo, things were going great until he jumped on my pet turtle Houdini.
Yeah, that was lame. I did at one point have a turtle named Houdini, though. Red eared box turtle, if I remember correctly. The little scamp was always climbing out of the aquarium. He is now the official third mascot of Kentmas, behind Podcast Pete the Pirate and Generic Smurf.
