Best Workplace Appreciation Gift Ever: 'The Mario'
If you work at most places for 20 years, you'll get either a nice or crappy watch, or a pen, or a money clip, or something that's a nice gesture, but hardly cool.
Not at Nintendo. At Nintendo, 20 years of service gets you this Mario sculpture, which I can say without hyperbole is cooler than an Oscar and a Nobel Prize...COMBINED.
I wish I didn't have to work at Nintendo to get that bad boy. Employees at Ford and 3M should get Mario statues for hard work. I'm hoping to score one for my two-year anniversary of writing for this site. Though I would settle for a Luigi. Or even a balsa wood Koopa Troopa.
