A follow-up to yesterday's comic: [link]

The older folks (ie, the folks my age) will get the full joke here. In the Super Mario Bros. 2 manual, Birdo was revealed to be a boy who wanted to be a girl. This never really changed in Japan, but in the U.S., where gender ambiguity is something to be feared, they changed Birdo into a girl.

I hear that's starting to change, though, with newer games calling Birdo's gender into question. :D

Anyway, this is yet another comic to coincide with the "Looting the Mushroom Kingdom" contest I'm running until August 8th. Everyone is welcome to enter for a chance to win prizes and stuff. Check out the full rules here: [link]

Ben, Winslow, and Kurt the Cynic are copyrighted by me. Birdo is copyrighted by Nintendo.

As far as I'm concerned any creature that shoots eggs out a facegina is at least part girl. That goes for the entire Yoshi species as well.

Everyone has some shame. Winslow just has less than most. But he has to draw the line somewhere. :)

:giggle: That's brilliant! The funny part is that the version for Game Boy advance had Birdo speak with a female voice! Also as I previously mentioned,in Super Mario Superstars, one character-a thief whose name was either Popo or Poopo reveals Birdo as his new rookie. He says "Yeah I found this er...dame." :Giggle:
