A 30-year old man is molding his two year old into Mario, transforming his son's sleeping quarters into the Mushroom Kingdom and getting the boy started on Super Mario Bros. -- "He usually just jumps up and down and presses pause a lot," observes dad. Determined to see the toddler succeed, the father recently completed a series of Photoshopped screen shots, imagining the Mario-boy in some "stellar Mario scenes." Next on the agenda: getting the kid on an all-mushroom diet.
