The 'Shroom:Issue 111/Fun Stuff
It wouldn't matter if you knew this person greatly or barely, positively or negatively. Death affects all, vandals and admins alike. Nobody smiles after the death of a friend; nobody smiles after the death of an enemy. Love or hate them while they're alive, but once they are dead, the feeling is nearly universal.
If you think about it, Walkazo was the greatest friend to many, the friendly local to some, yet the authoritative officer to others – three different perspectives, but one undeniable and unanimous feeling of sadness. And that is way today I do not write solely for myself, but for every contributor, moderator, and administrator; every spammer, vandalizer, troller, and every good-faith editor; the edit-warrer, the Mafia-player, every 'Shroom writer, the Poll Committee member; every proposal-voter, IRC Director, banned user, and every last one of us of this diverse community. Like it or not, you'll be in everyone's hearts when you go, not just for being an amazing editor, but because you are human and our poor, weak hearts are simply human too.
Section of the Month
Silly Stories, By You
Hey there! Sorry for being behind on these recently. Due to the nature of this issue, I've decided to omit "Silly Stories" for this month (again), considering a story about Mario's quest to defeat Trump would probably not be in the right tone. Sorry about that!
However, you can still vote! It's the same questionnaire as back in May, but more ideas are always welcome.
Hi readers, and welcome to Word Search! Since this is a special issue about our bureaucrat, Walkazo, who passed away in a traffic accident, the theme of this Word Search is the birds that appear in the Mario franchise. After all, for those that did not know, Walkazo was studying to become an ornithologist. Good luck finding all the words!
Walkazo (talk) was a brilliant woman. She would always go around sharing her insight with others, and it was a joy to see her perspective on the world. She was remarkably talented, making several contributions to the community, and producing some intriguing artwork. Walkazo was more than that, though. She was a friend to many people and had a pleasant attitude. I regret not getting to know her more. Sometimes, being able to deal with something like can feel as if you're trapped. Some of you out there might feel lost, like you don't know what to do. I certainly have felt a great deal of apathy ever since it happened. However, I believe that Walkazo would not want us to be like this. She would want us to push through this struggle; just like the many that she had to overcome. Thank you Walkazo; your legacy will live on. Thank you for everything.
The big man himself! Currently working as Nintendo's mascot and a carpenter, plumber, golfer, Vietnam soldier (???), racing driver, tennis umpire, tennis proffesional, brewery worker, cement factory worker, NBA player, baseball player, doctor, stunt bike rider, demolition worker, artist, toy manager, theme park owner, boxing referee, chef, rifleman, animal trainer, submarine captain, fighter pilot... should I go on?
That's all I have for this month, but next time you'll see me with some picrosses focusing on Power Ups, so remember to read this next time, otherwise I'll, um, make the picrosses explode in your face?
Just kidding, picrosses can't explode; see you next month (please?)
Have an idea for a theme? Suggest it here!
Surprisingly enough, there's a lot of birds in the Mario series. The Super Mario Wiki has a whole list of them. So don't worry, the characters featured today will likely not be obscure at all. Unless I choose so. You never know.
How'd you do? Regardless, thanks for playing, and please check back next month for more Guess Who!
Welcome to Quiz, a place where I... quiz you, on Mario stuff. As you may have noticed, this issue is dedicated to the late Walkazo whom we all deeply miss, so in her memory, I have made the sole subject of this Quiz Koopas. Happy guessing!
