The 'Shroom:Issue 142/Fake News
It's 2019! And as with every new year, congrats to the new Director and Sub-Director of The 'Shroom!
We have a few less sections than last month - as always with this time of year - and I've had a horrifically busy week so I can't say much here, but I hope you enjoy the section nonetheless!
Section of the Month
Anyone remember Mario Party Advance? No? Don't worry I'm in the same boat, but the game did have some characters, and in the past month one of them has sadly passed away, and that is the beautiful – please note subjective depending on your species – Goombetty.
Goombetty died in the glorious Goombob Manor, however I was disappointed to learn that she wasn't killed with a dagger or a candlestick and she was killed in neither the study nor the kitchen. Instead, she died in her bedroom, which I don't think was even in a room in Cluedo surprisingly enough, and it appears that she had a seashell allergy.
The news of her allergy shocked all of those close to her, as she loved collecting seashells in some way or another. In fact, her beloved Goombob used to give them to her as presents whenever they spent time together. He is currently being questioned by the police, while I rummage through his things trying to find anything interesting to write about Goombetty.
Like did you know, that despite Goomnuts being a Goomba delicacy, Goombetty was ambivalent toward them? She was also having an affair with a wealthy… hang on maybe I shouldn’t write about that last part. Um, she owned four different necklaces?
Goombetty is due to have a funeral soon, and as per Galoomba tradition, her coffin will be thrown into the ground, then removed and thrown back in. Much like how Mario used to defeat them.
As the old television of 2018 rolls away, the new television of 2019 rolls in. Just as it always is, some of it is really awful, but some of it is good quality, and finding the televisual gems of the New Year is effectively what my job is every January. So for the benefit of those who seek such talent in the world of Mushroom Kingdom television, here are tomorrow’s top three shows!
New: The Mayor
Chef Mario’s Cooking Extravaganza
Koopa Kart Championships 2019 Live
Remember, don’t feel you have to confine yourself to these televisual gems. There are plenty of television spectacles across all 120 channels of the Mushroom Kingdom broadcasting system. Of course, in order to find them you have to wade through all the rubbish first. So you may find it best to confine yourself to my picks. Your choice. See you in February!
