New York Times got Mario and Luigi’s jobs wrong
A soon-to-be-classic correction in Friday morning's New York Times:
An obituary on Sept. 20 about Hiroshi Yamauchi, the longtime president of Nintendo, included a quotation from a 1988 New York Times article that inaccurately described the Nintendo video game Super Mario Bros. 2. The brothers Mario and Luigi, who appear in this and other Nintendo games, are plumbers, not janitors.
Here's the original obituary, by Hiroko Tabuchi.
