The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handhelds and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com.

Is that who we think it is, plopped over there by the steps and playing a DS? You'd think he'd have one of the newer models, right? And doesn't he look a lot "portlier" on TV?

So this is why we haven't seen New Super Mario Bros. 2 yet; Mario's been dicking around, training his face while neglecting his princess-saving duties. While we're on the topic, we wonder if Face Training takes wild, magnificent moustaches into account.

(Yes, we know that Face Training is played with the DS turned sideways, but we didn't want to let our photoshopped image go to waste!)
