NY Times Correction of The Day: Super Mario Bros.

The New York Times has issued a Super Mario Bros. correction:

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.

The pixelated brothers, though nonplussed, have accepted the apology. Bowser had no comment.
