For anyone who thought that Mario existed only in a fantasy world where plumbers spend their days fighting angry plants and rescuing princesses, think again.

Mario Segale (pictured, in his youth) was the landlord of Nintendo of America – and the inspiration behind the world’s most famous Italian-American pungerwielder. Huge respect to the great man, and to Technologizer. com, the site that tracked down Segale’s long-lost yearbook photo.
