While skipping around the Internets like a pixie this morning, I landed at Joystiq, where I was rewarded with this:
"We had two bags of 1-up mushrooms, seventy-five pellets of fire flower, five sheets of high-powered stars, a saltshaker half-full of raccoon tail, a whole galaxy of multi-colored turtle shells, hammers, POW blocks, laughers... Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious power-up collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can."
Update: Livejournal user steelcaver says:
I'm constantly amused by the randomised collection of six-degree-separated things that surface on the internet; in this case, a page where an actor who once worked on a TV show that I watched is showing pictures based on a video game I used to play, created by some kid with an computer and image editing software.
steelcave then discovers that:
Six degrees, indeed.
