Maybe it was fate that Doug Bowser rose through the ranks of Nintendo, eventually becoming V.P. of Sales. Maybe he forced his way into the job by holding a princess hostage. Either way, I’m snicker-snorting my way through this post.
According to Nintendo’s tongue-in-cheek press release, Bowser “will oversee a variety of sales-related functions, including Sales, In-store Merchandising, Retail Strategy and Retail Marketing.”
I just hope they keep him away from mushrooms, pipes, plumbers, and bridges. Check out the press release after the break…

I wonder if his underlings will make jokes about boss fights when they get in trouble. Or if they will all give him some peach-themed present at the holiday party. Ah man, I could have a field day with terrible puns at his expense, then probably get fired. It would totally be worth it though.
