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 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.

Go for Pauline. Peach can float and fight bowser.

Mario has no idea who DK and Bowser really have their lusting sights on. This is the perfect ploy. XD

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:

Ooh, some Peach fanatics here!~

I'd say neither. Mario must be tired of saving people (besides, like DK would REALLY throw Pauline anyway. I guess he's testing Mario's resolve?) repeatedly. What's funny is both Bowser and DK are in love with the respected girl they're holding.

Mario: *picks up phone* Hey sonic!

Sonic: Yo! What up, Mario?

Mario: What do you do when you have two girls about to get dropped on the ground with an ape in love with one and a koopa with giant spikes holding the other who's a princess? Which one would you save?

Sonic: Beats me, dude! I already tried saving a princess 4 times in one game! I ain't easy!

Mario: Sonic '06, right! Also, try saving one per world. Oh wait. You practically try to save the world per game. So, that'a close enough I guess.

Sonic: Daaaaamn. Them royalty really need to upgrade their security! They have the money for it, right?

Mario: What do you think I tried to tell Peach?

Sonic: It's party time?

Mario: Very funny.

Sonic: I'm just messin' with ya.

Mario: You know what? I'm off for a vacation. Wanna come to chat about gaming sales?

Sonic: Sure! So long as I stay around the sand.

Mario: Still having hydrophobia?

Sonic: Hey!

Mario: I don't blame you. Beach water's too salty anyway.

Sonic: I guess. See ya there! *closes call*

Mario: Same here!*closes call*

I don't think DK would drop Pauline because he likes her. But anyway, simple solution here. Have Mario rescue Pauline and leave Peach to Luigi. Probably solved :XD:.

Mario:hmm
go to Brooklyn and take on king kongs son to rescue a normal girl that would probably reward me
or
go to a diffrent world where i can jump super high gain powers ive never had before beat a dragon and save a princess that most likely not give me anything and end up getting kidnapped over and over again only baking me a cake
hmm.....
Luigi: to bad your not me Mario (walks off with princess daisy arm in arm)
