A while back, Nintendo partnered with West Coast Customs to construct a working life-sized Mario Kart go cart.
And now, Gamestop is giving one away as a part of their PowerUp Rewards program.
I told my wife about it yesterday and did my best to describe the epic-ness of such a prize. It didn't go so well. The conversation went something like this...
Me: Hey, if we buy or trade a game at Gamestop, we'll be entered to win this full sized Mario Kart.
Bekah: (pitiless sarcasm) Ooooohhh.
Me: Wouldn't that be awesome? Christian would love it.
Bekah: Who in their right mind would want one of those? What would anyone do with it?
Me: I'd drive it to work.
She proceeded to mock me.
