Mario Enters Anger Management

As a child, nothing frustrated me more than trying to find the negative worlds in the original Super Mario Brothers game for the NES. I just couldn’t get the technique with the blocks and the ducking and the jumping right. Sigh … all those sleepless nights.

However, If I had these Mario-themed foam stress relievers, perhaps I would have turned out more well-adjusted. Available for $8 from Japanese company Banpestro, the items are officially licensed by Nintendo and are guaranteed to help satisfy your need to punch a hole in the wall after Bowser defeats you yet again.
