Rejoice Mario Kart fans: the newest McDonald’s Happy Meal toys just might be cool enough to outweigh the creepy new mascot.
About a month after the May 30 release of Mario Kart 8, McDonald’s will be rolling out a line of fancy new Mario figures riding bikes, go-karts, and hovercrafts (ooh. . . .). The whole gang is here, including Mario, Luigi, DK, Yoshi, Bowser, Toad, and even Princess Peach.
For girls (because Peach isn’t feminine enough apparently?), there are also Ty Teenie Beanie Boos, mini versions of Ty’s iconic Beanie Babies that, despite their giant anime eyes, will never be as precious as my Princess Diana bear.
Based on promotional images, it’s hard to tell if the go-karts actually go. but according to Nerdalicious, each toy does come with a kid-sized red Mario visor, which is almost as good.
Now, I’ve seen some pretty epic drinking games but I can only imagine how insane things get when you mix cheap beer with Mario Kart.
Think about it. The game is already hard to play sober. Plus, something changes in people when they play Mario Kart. Your friends are now laughing maniacally as they shoot Bullet Bills and leave a trail of banana peels for you to slip on. Not to mention you have Wario on your ass with Bowser waiting just around the corner to blast that damn spiny shell at you just as you slide into first place. But to play this seemingly innocent racing game while drunk off your ass? Nope. Kiss Rainbow Road goodbye.
The rules are simple:
1) Dust off your N64 and find your Mario Kart 64 cartridge. Yes kids, in the old days we had to play our video games on cartridges, none of that fancy CD ish.
2) Get some beer. Make sure it’s something you like because you’ll be spending some quality time with it.
3) Grab some pals and start up the game. Once you’ve all picked your characters and course, it’s time to get down to business.

Make sure you play this with some friends though, because playing Beerio Kart solo is basically geeky alcoholism.
IntriCake at it again. This time with a colorful and detailed take on the classic Nintendo game, Mario Kart! Decked out with clouds, stars and annoying banana peels, this cake is ready to be eaten…if you can get yourself to stop gawking.
