Let's all just agree that the above laptop decal is awesome. Created by LapTatt and available on Etsy for a paltry $14, it's just about the greatest Nintendo-themed laptop decal we've ever seen (not that there have been too many).

Remember last night when we broke into spontaneous discussion about Yoshi during our weekly Game Night assembly?
