Last year the very foundation of our global society was shaken to its very core by a shocking revelation – Mario was no longer a plumber. The news came from an edited Nintendo of Japan hub site for the video game icon, where his 30-year occupation was said to be in the past, stripping game journalists the world over of the perfect alliteration that is “portly plumber.”

However, months later, the same site has updated once again restoring Mario to his former career. Perhaps he took an extended vacation for Super Mario Odyssey and now he’s back to unclogging toilets of toadstools?

Here’s hoping Mario manages to maintain his job in this unstable economy.
