Cheat Code

Today is the 4th of July. You might be asking, then, why I'm running a comic about an Italian plumber created by some Japanese game developers. It's been a while since I played Super Mario Brothers, but I believe there are fireworks at the end of ever level if Mario successfully jumps to the top of the flagpole. And doesn't everybody associate the 4th with fireworks?


  1. Hey! Don't forget America is named after an Italian, Amerigo Vespucci!

  2. Yes. Maybe a bit of a stretch.

  3. Mario is an American Classic, no matter who developed it. :)
