Plumber's Dilemma by MichaelMayne Plumber's Dilemma by MichaelMayne
This idea struck me earlier today. I thought it was too funny to shrug off.


All characters are by Nintendo.
Artwork is 2010 by Michael Mayne.

I was about to say something about Peach being able to float, which means Mario can just go for Pauline, but, er... looks like it's already been said a bunch of times.

Peach must survive!

Or you could just go get Luigi to help...

Either Peach and Pauline are glaring at each other because of rivalry, or they're sharing a mutual look of "Well, this sucks."

I dunno why, but I feel like whoever Mario doesn't go after won't be dropped. Bowser loves Peach and DK ain't THAT heartless. So I imagine as soon as Mario goes after one, the other will just throw their girl over their shoulder and skedaddle.

Well needless to say: it's a safe bet we now know who Mario chose in the end.
Only question remains..what did Donkey Kong ultimately do to Pauline? (I think that's her name.)
Glad you made it. It WAS too good to pass up. :D

He be better off going after Pauline first. Peach can float long enough to delay her fall.

Ignore them both: The reason?

Pauline: slut,whore, and DK is in love, and you don't wanna mess with a monstrous ape.

Peach: Has been kidnapped hundreds of times but gives only a cake for Mario as his reward :angered: , SHE CAN FLOAT DOWN TO SAFETY WITH HER PARASOL!!!! , and Bowser would EXPECT Mario to rescue Peach, so he'd eventually give up anyway. :shrug:
