This letter is significant because of the fact that it was sent from so far away that a carrier pigeon had to bring it to him.

It may or may not be a "strange" sentence, but the way this sentence is this awfully worded, it should warrant a mention.

I'm pretty sure this topic isn't supposed to be a dump for badly written stuff, it's supposed to be words and phrases that are taken out of context

As readers of Super Mario Facts can attest, a lot of humour on the wiki can be derived from perfectly accurate and straightfoward description of insane things that happen in the Mario series (and bad writing, but that's not this thread's subject).

There's plenty of venues to laugh at our pitiful quality control.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

SuperMarioFacts's Halloween Gimmick made me think of how the Glitch pages's section headers make for awesomely bad track names.


CROTCH FACE GUY AND HIS PIRATE GOOMBAS PRESENT:

KILL KLUMP WITH DIDDY KONG, feat:

1.  Non-Appearing Dog House
2. Fly Guy Suicide
3. Permanently Crushed
4. Falling through the planet
5. Victory Dance on Fences (MarioWiki mix)
6. The Rolling Glitch
7. Insane Vertical Zipping
8. Get into the Barn House During the Day
9. Bad Timing, Yoshi
10. Eating Baby Mario
11. Is that a question?!
12. Wrong planet vibration
13. Fly Guy Suicide (Reprise)
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Toadofsky has "composer's block". He is trying to create a brand new symphony, but doesn't have any inspiration to work from. Unfortunately, if Toadofsky does not finish a masterpiece soon, he will be forced to compose video game music for games starring a hedgehog.

*The introduction video for this game features something impossible in the actual game: for a few seconds, Mario can be seen dodging Bullet Bills in the Koopa Bros. Fortress with Parakarry following behind; this is not possible in-game, as Parakarry does not join the party until much later.  This is possible because the player can come back later in the game after getting Parakarry on the team, the player can go back to the Koopa Bros. Fortress and dodge the bullet bills.  Doing this is out of the game's sequential plot, but it is possible.
