Mario has a pig. Why? Because of course he's got a pig, that's why! What could possibly go wrong?
That noise you hear is the collective wincing of every animal welfare employee on the planet. We give it a fortnight until a photo surfaces of Super with a wicked new camouflage paint job.
That or a photo of the two of them go-karting together.
