Hmmm.... It's just not funny.

I guess those two people talked about how they look like Mario and Luigi. (The Mario Brothers from the Nintendo Video game of the same name) So Mario, in emulating the video game where Mario has to go through pipes, accidently dies while trying to go through a toilet.

Wow... That is so not-funny, it's almost funny that someone would think it was funny.

Yeah, really not funny.

Anyway, I must've had a mental block, because that pipe didn't look like a pipe to me. The first thing I thought of was a hallway from DooM (walls with computers on them) and that's what stuck; I never saw it as a pipe until you said so. It's pretty obvious now; why would Mario be on Phobos? But that's why I didn't get it.

A sly allusion to Gravity's Rainbow?

I seriously need someone to explain COP$ to me...

(Okay, Secret Mutant Hero Team was marginally funny.)

I'm starting to think maybe this is the point. A postmodern approach to humor, like Jim's Journal (except that Jim's Journal worked).
