Disclaimer: it's a bit of a joke. Super mario in general is a drug addict. He Flies when he eats leaves - he gets high off weed He grows when he eats the mushrooms - he's hallucinating from the mushrooms He throws fire balls when acquiring an eerie plant - the plant is heroine (the drug raises your temp. violently). He See's flying turtles. The goomba's are black people. - part of an halucination from taking a bunch of drugs. He jumps from pipe to pipe (drug paraphernalia) He drifts from level to level searching for coins, day and night (the night is the end of the level with the box and star) - he's a fucking bum.
