Little Kid Writing A Letter To Santa In Character As Bowser From ‘Super Mario’ Should Probably Be On Some Sort of Watch List
A teacher posted this letter to Santa on Reddit from one of his students written as though he’s Bowser while saying it’s an example of how creative and genius the little video game fan kid is. And though empathy is great and all, this kid seems to be a little too in the mind of Bowser for me to be comfortable with it. Justifying the kidnapping of innocent Mushroom Kingdom royal family members and pretending as though it’s “love,” acting like he didn’t have anything to do with the hundreds upon thousands of attempts on Mario’s life, making it seem like we should feel bad for him and his dozens of castles even though 99% of the population seem to be just wandering around homeless before getting stomped to death. Relate to the heroism of Mario, appreciate the loyalty of Toad, understand the struggle of being an unemployed blue collar worker like the Hammer Bros. But Bowser? When you’re an 8-year-old kid able to find this much humanity in the Kim Jong Il of the Nintendo world, you’re pretty much crying out for help and a few therapist sessions in your Christmas stocking.
Also kid if you’re going to do Bowser fan-art at least put some effort into it like this one. Sick sunglasses, double headed guitar AND a pot leaf behind him? Now this is the kind of Bowser you support mass genocide for.
