Over the weekend there was a major water leak which cut off the water supply to a large area in Birmingham (UK) for several hours. One resident mentioned a possible need to bring in a “bowser” – in effect a very large water cooler. It is surely no accident that Mario the plumber’s main nemesis is called Bowser. There is even a resemblance!
Suddenly Mario’s quest to defeat Bowser (and rescue Peach, who, as far as I know holds no relationship to the exciting world of plumbing) appears in a completely different light.
Come on Mario! Fix those pipes and restore that water supply! Earn those contractor fees by picking up coins! Defeat Bowser and save the Mushroom Kingdom from the inefficient water supply method!
