2016 Geek-A-Long: Kirby

03 Kirby 2

Who would win in a hotdog eating contest, Yoshi or Pac-Man? Tick question. Neither. Kirby would inhale all of the hotdogs, the plates and table, Yoshi, Pac-Man, and the chairs they sat on all in one breath. Then, his health would replenish and he’d be like, “Gosh and gee willikers, that was a nice snack! I’ll have ten more of that please.” Because Kirby is cute and innocent and cheerful with a voracious appetite. Basically, he’s an animated version of me when I ran into the Girl Scouts at the mall the other day.

Hahaha, just kidding! I totally hunted down those Girl Scouts. Did you know they have an app for that now??? It’s changing my life for the awesomer. No more tears for me, waiting until I see my supplier (A.K.A. my adorable niece) until March.

Even though Kirby didn’t make it into the top 25 video games on our Leaderboard, Megan-Anne and I still adore him. We didn’t have any of his video game growing up, but we did enjoy playing as him on Super Smash Bros. He was one of the starter characters, and I was a big fan of his super sweet flying skills and ability to copy enemy attacks.

BirdNerd-Knitter loved him too and nominated him:

How could I forget Kirby?!?! Although we love any Kirby game, the Amazing Mirror is one of our favorites.

“Stop eating me, Jacquline! It’s not fair. I’ll tell mom.” “How are you gonna tell her if you’re in my tummy!” ::WILD MANIACAL LAUGHTER::
