Title: A Super Smash Bros. Anecdote
Posted: June 17, 2007 (11:04 AM)
I'd like to share an interesting anecdote based on the original Super Smash Bros. for the N64. No, not the one for Gamecube that people are STILL buying (you'd think everyone has one already, what with it being on the top-selling charts for, like, 90 months), but the original. This happened to a friend's son.

A few years back, the son, who was about seven or eight, watched his dad (my friend) and me plow
through some spirited rounds of classic Smash. At the time, I was playing as Captain Falcon. Well, this little boy became practically obsessed with Captain Falcon. He viewed the F-Zero pilot as sort of a Power Ranger, or whatever resident fad was taking America's youth by storm.

Anyway, a few days later, I got a call from my friend. He said that when he had gotten home from
work, his wife had heard his son yelling "FALCON PUNCH!!!" at the top of his lungs, and had automatically assumed that he was using another word that began with the letter F, but was not "Falcon." Needless to say, she freaked out.

Well, all I shall comment about this topic is that this child learned a new word, inadvertently. Do you know what I say to that?

Hehehehehehehehehehe...

Speaking of Smash, for all of you who wish to have a good laugh, visit this site:

This site is translated from Japanese, which would explain the long and funky URL. It is full of broken English and Japanese words that we Westerners don't have words for. Read and laugh.

That's all for now!
