Oh, you don't know the half of it. When that game came out, my little brother was still quite young and he thought the baby was saying "Hi, hi!" to him, so he'd intentionally let the baby Mario float around in the bubble constantly and laugh about it. From that point on, we've always known the game as Hi Hi, so I often forget its real name and think people mean Yoshi Story when they say Yoshi's Island. All day long... hi, hi, hi, hi... It's part of the reason I am how I am today.

vaguely-related anecdote time!

so my little sister, back when she was first learning how to write... it was around xmas, i believe, and she was totally believing in Santa Claus at the time, so they taught her how to write 'ho ho ho'... and she apparently thought that was how you wrote everything -- 'ho ho ho'. she wrote in all the Little Golden Books she had with her crayons and stuff, and all it was was 'ho ho ho ho ho ho ho' over and over again, but if you asked her what she'd written she'd tell you all kinds of whacked-out stories about whatever it was she thought she'd written, lol. we still tease her about that today.

@Cowlaunch OP

So, do you think up a pun first and then create an article to match it? :P

Not that I'm complaining, but it reminds me of a friend of mine back in grad school, who would think up clever titles first and then try to come up with a term paper to match.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

I felt that way about Banjo-Kazooie. The noises the characters made annoyed the hell out of me.

SingStar would be pretty strange wthout sound, although I don't think that's on the Wii.

@WariosWoods
I think of a topic first & then a stupid title to match.
