Kids say the darnedst things

While we were playing Mario Kart on the Wii this evening, my brother-in-law mentioned how he really liked the SNES version of Mario Kart, or as he called it, “old Mario Kart.” My daughter asked how you played the “old Mario Kart.” We explained that you played it pretty much the same way you play Mario Kart on the Wii, only with a different controller.

Then she asked what it looked like. Again, we said it looked a lot like Mario Kart on the Wii. She followed that question up with, “was it in black and white?”

How old does she think I am?!


  1. That’s actually a pretty brilliant question, because it implies the follow-up question “Well, if it’s not any different why would you buy the new one over and over and over again?”

    I don’t have a good answer to _that_ question, either.

  2. Reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes.


  3. But it came on three wax cylinders and only cost sixpence.

  4. Get used to it. You are now part of the older generation. Everything you used to do is old school.

    When I was a kid games were in black and white. I invested many a day playing Pong. People my age (42) ushered in the gaming world so others could enjoy it in color. I was on the cutting edge of video gaming when 20 somethings had yet to suckle a boob! I still play and love it!

  5. you suck
