Babies got 3 votes?
So what do those people want? To kill all the babies in the world? Heartless fools.
Proud to have gotten 4th place in the 2011 Awards Brawl Tournament! Only 3 people did better than I did!
I'm very busy right now. You won't see me much at all, unless I'm playing mafia (which I manage to find a little bit of time time for.)

If you see Smasher 101, tell him I said hi. He'll scream and run away.

Press the Kill Gigaremo button to feed me food!
Oh wait, I mean the Feed Gigaremo butto– *dies*

I got brainwashed by bronies and now I'm one!
My internet died, can't be on much, sorry

Just as the three exited the presentation building, they ran into a screen that had a video of Wario saying “OBEY WARIO. DESTROY MARIO AWARDS” as if to hypnotize them.


*Whir whir*

Anyways, good job!  :D

Camera angles are bad in 3D games? Can't believe that got so many votes. I probably would have voted for Vibes, I never thought Super Princess Peach was a good game idea.

The winner (or failer) makes sense, even for those grinding to level 99 in PM2 or *bleep*ing around, you run into a cap eventually. But you don't want to break the game, do you?

EDIT: Pit of 100 Trials rocks, how dare he/she.

I'm posting Edofenrir's Award: F3 - Worst Item.

F3. Worst Item

Salutations, folks.



The name is Russ T., although I am also commonly called the wise Toad. I will be your host for this part of the show. What we are going to talk about today is items.



Items are remarkable little things. They make us laugh. They make us cry. They are really really useful when utilized in the right situation.







Indeed, the world of items is a world full of wonders.

...or so you would believe. The truth is that very few people know that this is only one half of the full story.



Not every item out there can be considered a godsend. No. For each decent item that we get, there is bound to be a demon spawn of a nuisance somewhere else.

Yes, terrible items exist, and it is these kinds of items that we will focus on for now. I managed to ask 961 people about their personal experiences with bad items. Here are the five examples that received the most complains:

5th place: Blue Shell
99 votes



These are very awful. They started circulating back then when everyone was into kart racing. At first they were only used on the race tracks, and things were relatively ok back then. But some wise guy (who was not me, by the way) had to leak the shells into the hands of the public and now they are everywhere.

The problem with these things is the way they work. Blue Shells are fitted with an internal tracking system that always targets the first person in a particular sequence. If you are in a situation that could somehow be interpreted as a lead position, the dreaded Blue Shell will find you, and there is almost nothing you can do about it. At the end of the day, you will wake up in a hospital bed. Take it from the number one genius in town.



So the next time you spent half an hour waiting to get to the head of the line in front of the bathroom, remember this: You are probably waiting in vain..

4th place: Dried Shroom
130 votes



The next terrible item on our list is... uhmmm...



Wait, a Dried Shroom? Really? These are considered bad? That's news to me. I mean, I am aware of the fact that they are not very nutritious, but personally I never had a problem with them. They taste at least tolerable when you put Hot Sauce on them.

Well, I would just ignore them if I didn't like them, but I assume this is a matter of opinion.

3rd place: Thunder Cloud
142 votes



Another one of those items that originated from kart racing. This one is even worse than the Blue Shell because you have no control over it at all. As soon as you take it out of its item box, it's active, and it will attack you if you cannot force it on some other unlucky soul fast enough.

And the cloud will cling to you. It is like one of those days where you go out to visit your parents in the countryside. You are sitting at the station waiting for the train to arrive, minding your own business, when a vagrant with questionable odor follows you around and keeps asking you for spare change.



Except in this case, the vagrant shoots lightning at you.



Forcing someone to spread misfortune to others to avoid misfortune for themselves... Whoever invented this must have had a very cynical attitude.

2nd place: Mistake
147 votes



Mistakes.

Yes, I know the frustration these abominations can stir in the hearts of people.

That one Saturday, for example, I was reading about the cultural aspects of the eastern Shy Guy tribes, an appealing weekend activity I am sure many people know to enjoy. And while I was studying, I learned about this exotic tea made out of a Stinky Herb and a Dizzy Dial. So I set out to acquire these ingredients...



...and brought them to the only person in Toad Town I know who even has a kitchen in their house.

I then found out she didn't know the recipe.



There are these situations where you just can't think of anything to say.

1st place: Poison Mushroom
184 votes



Yes, Poison Mushrooms. Poison Mushrooms have been around for a long time. Now it depends on the particular specimen, but most of these fungi will take your life . And in an economy that is pretty much built on mass consumption of mushrooms, having poisonous ones among them is quite the disaster.

The worst part, however, is the fact that there is a particular sub-group of these that look almost exactly like regular mushrooms, meaning that having a meal can actually be a huge gamble.



After a while, you start becoming paranoid.

And this brings me to the conclusion of this discussion. Most of the people I asked agreed that the Poison Mushroom is the bane of their existence. The very top of the list, and the worst item of the year.



So be certain to check your Mushrooms before you eat them.

And with that I will be excusing myself for the night. Thank you very much.

There were 98 different “Other” votes plus the people who entered joke votes and the people who voted in the “Other” box for something that was actually listed as a nominee.  If you did this, *bleep* you.  *bleep* you in the *bleep*.  You wasted everyone’s time because you couldn’t just read the *bleep*ing list of nominees.  Seriously, there were a maximum of 12 nominees for each award.  It’s not that hard to just read the list.
I did the latter
