Found this on reddit and thought let me share this because it actually made laugh for once.
I bet you'll like this @MariaColette;
Whenever we played my dad would always choose Toad. I just figured he liked him.
This went on for years. Finally one day my dad was in the lead and got hit by a blue shell that sent him flying into a wall.
"Wow good thing I'm wearing a helmet!" "What dad?" "Yeah Toad. He's the only one of these pimentos smart enough
to wear a helmet. That's why I always pick him!"
