Director's Notes (Super Mario Bros. (talk))

Hello readers! This is SMB, returning to The 'Shroom to direct the Fun Stuff Team. New Super Mario (talk) was looking for somebody to replace him as he had other responsibilities to tend to, so I applied for the position and was given the job. I will work with the Core Staff team and the Fun Stuff writing team to ensure that we continue to produce high-quality sections and projects each month. From now on, I will make posts in the Fun Stuff Director's Notes regarding openings in the writing team, Section of the Month results from the previous edition's vote, and any new features that we plan to introduce.

To address the Section of the Month for March 2014: we do not have a recipient. In cases when we receive only one submission, I would normally award the title even though no vote would be held (so long as the section is one of quality and adheres to the Manual of Style). The writer that submitted last month's only Fun Stuff section was fired for disorderly conduct, however, and is ineligible to receive the Section of the Month. We have several more sections this month, so we will have a poll open at the bottom of this page for Fun Stuff Section of the Month for April 2014!

We are currently accepting applications for several Fun Stuff positions at this time. If you are interested in writing for the Fun Stuff, check out our list of openings on our sign up page and submit an application to me on the forum. We have a wide variety of content that we aim to provide each month: from riddles and jokes to puzzles and guessing games, we have plenty of sections and activities for our members to create and submit.

And that is all from me this month, please enjoy this month's Fun Stuff!

Trivia (Marshal Dan Troop (talk))

Hello 'Shroom readers, it is I, your glorious eternal leader Marshal Dan Troop. Now I would like to apologize for my absence from The 'Shroom: for while I was away waging war, raiding cities, getting my law degree and becoming district attorney of New York County, I forgot all about my duties to The 'Shroom. So now the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Did you know:

  1. That according to Shigeru Miyamoto the Mario brothers don’t have a last name?
  2. That Luigi was the first character to be portrayed by a real actor?
  3. That according the Yoshi's New Island that the stork accidentally delivered the Mario Brothers to the wrong parents?
  4. That the Koopalings were supposed to be in Super Princess Peach but were removed for unknown reasons?
  5. That Professor E. Gadd was supposed to be playable in Mario Kart DS but was replaced by Dry Bones?
  6. That Pikmin is actually based off of a Mario test demo called Super Mario 128?
  7. That the first female senator (Rebecca Latimer Felton) also happens to have served the shortest term in the Senate (one day)?

Hiding Koopa (General bob-omb (talk))

After all these years! We can finally return to Yoshi's Island! (Wait, it's a different island?) Oh, well that's cool too. At long last, Yoshi is on another adventure and that means he's back to fighting (eating) all of his enemies (harmless bystanders)! Well considering that would include Koopas, I guess that this picture is fitting. See if you can find Yoshi's first opponent (victim).

Hey it's April. Happy April Fools something something I'm days late, shut up.

I was really lazy and stuff, sue me. Super Mario Bros. 3 was recently released on the Virtual Console on both the 3DS and Wii U, so here’s a word search based on the well-renowned enemies from the game!
