Inspired by this topic. And no, I don't think that the poll is biased at all :)

The most famous computer character of all time or some lame arse rodent.

Decisions, decisions.

Tsk. As if there could ever be any doubt about whether a rodent is superior to a lying, thieving "blimey, mate, I'm going to have to replace your whole central heating system" plumber.

Pah! Of course gerbils and hamsters are going to vote for the rodent. And equally naturally, people like me empathise with fellow Lame-Asses*.
*(which is of course an elegant metaphor in reference to a beast of burden unable to fulfil its duty as it is crippled)

EDIT: It's interesting to see how both characters are products of foreign misinterpretation of quintessentially European phenomena i.e. that plumbers are multitalented superheroes that crush walking hamburgers and pull a discus on unsuspecting hornèd dinosaurs, and that hedgehogs are speedy blue blurs.

EDIT 2: So I posted it months ago - I can't help fixing things, I'm a pedant.

The eleven of you that have so far voted for Mario have no taste. :) When the Revolution comes, you will be the first up against the wall.

As one who voted for the plumber, I'm oh-so-tempted to alter his description ;)

That would be a bad idea Neo. The lame ass bit helped me make up my mind. Without it, I might have mistakenly voted for sonic.

xander, I would imagine that, being a superhero, Mario would have not a lame, but high quality plumber's crack
