Addio Super Mario!

It's Official: rumors be damned, the Lion King has really retired this time. And as a simple search on the internet for a suitable photographic tribute turned into an endless wade through a sea of pics of him with his shirt off, before I could even come up with any photos of him actually racing, I bring to you instead his appearance on the Italian "Punk'd" in his Domina Vacanze days. The setup: he's out training, he's told his bikes have been ripped off, the thieves zoom by with the bikes before his very eyes, Mario takes off in pursuit, and the knaves, taking refuge, taunt him as Mario goes postal with a sledgehammer and cinderblock. By all accounts, he took his punking graciously. Sorry to miss you in Sanremo Mario!
