  1. Now THIS is the kind of quality content I follow your blog for! :)

    Seriously though, this is adorable. I don’t have nearly as many clever names, except:

    Spiny Shell: the “Fuck You” Shell
    Tanooki Mario: the Furry
    Triple Items: “Spinnies” or “the Circle of Death”

    Also, just . . . like, the normal names with “fucking” or “goddamn” in front of them, because I almost exclusively apply profanity to family-friendly situations.

  2. While we don’t play Mario Cart my brother and I used to play Yoshi’s Island pretty regularly. To this day I’ve still got toothmarks on the controllers from his ‘bites of frustration’ and Yoshi is always referred to as ‘Fuckin’ Yoshi’, in as angry a growl as possible.

  3. I mostly just play The Sims, where I conduct breeding programs that would give Dr. Mengele pause. And this one time, a sim was rude to my sim at a party, so I made the rude sim pregnant (seven times, all with different fathers) using a cheat, then gave her the “Dislikes Children” character trait. Her life became a living hell. Don’t imply my sim’s mother was a llama, bitch.

    1. ‘I mostly just play The Sims, where I conduct breeding programs that would give Dr. Mengele pause.’

      Late to the party (rough week) but this literally made me laugh my ass off! I didn’t do that sorta thing–but as a kid, I decided to create a haunted mansion in the Sims 1 by combining elements from ‘Da Hip Hop Witch’ and The Haunting remake (basically stuff I saw from the high shelf of a VHS rental store, and thought was aesthetically cool). I’d make this weird-o house, move some sims in (usually club kids, but were occasionally ‘regular’ families) and then I kill them in various ways and wait for them to come back as ghosts.

      Unfortunately, I made SO MANY ghosts in that lot that I eventually *broke* the game. After killing one too many sims (I think I had 38 graves in that mansion alone), instead of making ghosts appear every 3 am–the game just loads Playboy Bunnies. And so every night, when the clock strikes the witching hour–a horde of sultry Playboy Bunnies in gold suits would suddenly appear in the mansion graveyard.

      I eventually had to delete my haunted mansion because it couldn’t load properly after I quitted the game. It was still a totally fun (if confusing) end to the play-through.

    2. Me and my family didn’t have any special names for the Mario characters in Mario-Kart (well, except Baby Bowser who me and my siblings affectionally call, “Lil’ B.B.” (for Baby Bowser, obvs). But when I was little, I used to play Yoshi’s Story with my brother. Yoshi’s story is an old N64 game where you play as little yoshis that were trying to find their stolen fruit tree–and it’s basically like a good ‘starter game’ for really young kids to get into the Nintendo hype.

      HOWEVER, in Yoshi’s Story–every time you successfully clear a level or story progression, the yoshis would sing an uber-cutesy song that goes like, “Be Careful” (which unfortunately–probably because it was sung in Engrish–sounded a LOT like “The @sshole”). You’d seriously HAVE to listen to it on youtube, cuz it’s pretty…’special’.

  4. Every time someone uses the blooper on me I scream “Squid!” at the top of my lungs, because it’s the most evil of all items.

  5. Not silly names, but I change Hamilton lyrics to fit whatever I’m doing in No Man’s Sky. I also talk to the animals like they’re my cat.
    OH! I did name a planet “Planet of the Doggos” and every animal was a different type of doggo. The only one I remember is “Flying Doggo.”
