I have weird mental mash-ups when I’m tired:

“There’s this passage I got memorized. Miyamoto 19:81. “The path of the carpenter is beset on all sides by the fires of the oil drum and the barrels of giant gorillas. Blessed is he who, in the name of points and an extra life, shepherds the weak through the girders of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost Daisies. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and a huge hammer those who attempt to flatten and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is Jumpman when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”

“I been saying that shit for years. And if you heard it, that meant your quarters. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was some cold-blooded shit to say to a motherfucker ‘fore I beat his high score. But I saw some shit this mornin’ made me think twice. See, now I’m thinking, maybe it means you’re the gorilla, and I’m the hero, and Mr. NES Advantage here, he’s the hammer protecting my righteous ass in the pie level. Or, it could mean you’re the carpenter and I’m the hammer and it’s the world that’s evil and monkeyish. I’d like that. But that shit ain’t the truth. The truth is, you’re the weak, and I’m the tyranny of Kong. But I’m tryin’, Ringo. I’m trying real hard to be the Mario.”

“You tell that Princess to be cool.”
