The 'Shroom:Issue LI/Fake News
Hello once more, readers.
So it has been one month now since Special Issue L. After that admittedly somewhat hectic month, we are going to let everything settle down quietly. The result of this is a nice, little issue. It is a bit on the short side but that doesn't have to be bad.
On a more positive note: We finally have an "Ask '3K" segment again for this issue. We also gained a new writer in Chivi-chivik, who will assist the Cooking Guide with recipes and artwork. Personally, I am somewhat of a sucker for appealing artwork, so I definitely approve of this development.
And thankfully, this is all I'm going to bother you with for this month. Have fun reading.
Today, we have Prof. Frankly with us in a section we like to call Frankly's Findings.
The ever-talkative professor has gone to the farthest corners of the planet, trying to find new species. He has reportedly found three new species of enemies.
Frankly's Notes: “I found this species of Boomboxer while I was exploring the darkest depths of the Floro Caverns. This seems to be the third strongest of the species. What I find quite odd is how colorful these creatures are, despite getting little sunlight.”
Frankly's Notes: “This species of Wizzerd was discovered in the Toad Town Sewers. It seems to have been worn down by rust, giving it a brown hue. One of its fingers seems to have been misplaced and the rubber covering of one of its hands seems to have been removed. This mechanical monster is a mess, but it can still put up a mediocre fight.”
Frankly's Notes: “Now this one is a little odd, as I didn't discover it, but rather…managed to create it. After hours of hard work in my lab, I have finally created the ultimate goon. Using my vast variety of tools and other utensils, I have combined the ordinary Goomba and the explosive Bob-omb into one abomination, which I will dub…
Pretty self-explanatory, I should say.”
That last one looked a bit…odd…
Anyways, that concludes this special report. See you all next time.
The Peach's Castle this past week. An epic final between Magikoopa and Gunther went down to the wire, but Magikoopa was able to complete his comeback after being given an inspirational pep talk from none other than Charlie Sheen. Though Sheen couldn't entirely piece together what he had said to the eventual champ, our reporters were able to come up with this: "Tiger blood, balloon, you can't handle Charlie Sheen!" Magikoopa celebrated his win with his jovial family, but the mood was dampened when Buzz Killington arrived and ruined the awards ceremony by telling a story about a bridge.were played at
Me: (opens the door and receives a hit with a ladle) - AWW!!
Me: (writing) Could you repeat that for me...
Thanks for reading, and, until next Cooking Guide!!

Hey, everybody! I'm PyroGuy6, and today we have an interesting interview. We're not just interviewing one person. We're interviewing THREE. Meet the Shadow Sirens!
Pyro: So I've heard Beldam and Marilyn stopped being evil.
Pyro: How come you almost never detach from the ground?
Beldam: What do you mean, almost?
Vivian: I somehow detached from the ground when we were shot to the moon.
Beldam: Vivian, you detached from the ground? How is that even possible?!
Beldam: You're right, Marilyn. Let's question Nintendo Logic later.
Pyro: How was Vivian not aware of your plans to awaken the Shadow Queen, Beldam?
Beldam: Well, Vivian wasn't created as early as me and Marilyn. She was actually created at the last second, right before those heroes came and sealed her.
Pyro: Is that so? Why does Marilyn say "Guh" all the time?
Beldam: Um…I have no idea.
Vivian: Haven't a clue.
Pyro: How did you feel about Doopliss being in the group before Vivian came back, Beldam?
Beldam: (Why is he asking me so many questions?) He was freaky. The only way he was helpful was when he disguised himself as Professer Frankly.
Vivian: Plus, he couldn't even teleport right. That was hillarious.
Pyro: Did the Shadow Queen intentionally give you all elemental powers?
Beldam: Yes, but the hats are what give us our powers. So if me and Vivian switched hats, we would switched powers.
Vivian: Yeah. Once Beldam tried to put Marilyn's hat on but it…
Beldam: Don't say it.
Vivian: It completely covered her up.
Beldam: Now look at what you've done, Vivian. Can we end this?
Pyro: Sure, this has been long enough. See you next month, everyone.
Oh hi, 'Shroom readers. I have four questions this time around and I want to thank those who submitted questions. Remember, whether or not this section appears in an issue depends entirely on your input. So with that out fthe way, the first three come from Flubber who asks:
-What is your favorite smiley? I really don't use the emoticons all that much, but if I had to choose one, it'd probably be the "cool" smiley. On a semi-related note, the forum needs a Bowser Jr. smiley.
-Do you like The Simpsons? Not as much as I used to a few years ago. It's become really hit-and-miss as of late. I still like it, but I think South Park is better.
-Do you think Wario is overweight? The whole "wario is fat ololol" thing isn't funny. It's immature and I think it reflects poorly on the community. To answer the question, I'd guess that he's built like an NFL player.
And PyroGuy6 asks -What is your favorite galaxy in the Super Mario Galaxy games? FreezeFlame in Galaxy 1 and SlipSand in Galaxy 2.
'Til next time, dear readers.
