Creating real-life Mario blocks is cool and fun.
Five teenage girls in a small nothing town were arrested for designing Mario Bros. blocks and putting them around town. In a town with nothing to do, they found some fun. Now the city is trying to press criminal charges, despite admitting they know the girls did nothing to harm anyone or to try to scare anyone.
McCoy said even though no harm was intended by the girls, they could face criminal charges for their actions.
“The potential is always present when dealing with a suspicious package that it could be deadly,” McCoy said. “In today’s day and age, you just cannot do this kind of stuff.”
What a sad, sad state of affairs.
