The Internet Reacts To Bowser Taking Over Nintendo

After 15 years, the man, myth, and infinitely meme-able legend Reggie Fils-Aime has finally kicked enough arse and taken enough names. He’s being succeeded as president of Nintendo of America by a man with the greatest name of all: Doug Bowser. Never before have the jokes so readily written themselves.

Within seconds of the announcement, the internet was ablaze with one hundred million variations on the exact same joke. This will continue indefinitely, probably until Doug Bowser retires, gives the position to a turtle who’s apparently not his kid, and goes back to harassing his local plumber. But you know what? It’s 2019 and the world is a nightmarish fun house mirror parody of itself. Let’s laugh about the high-powered executive with the cartoon dinosaur name.

    What happens when he puts the crown on though? Deb Bowsette?

    Waiting on some wanna-be CEO changing their last name to 'Fortnite' to up their chance of promotion

    Steve Lootbox heading up EA is a good gag

      Haha Activision. My brain just interchanges the two :^)

    Well after 15 years of working at Nintendo I do wish Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime all the best for his retirement.
    I think Bowser will do a good job as the new Nintendo of America president because definitely deserves a break from trying to stop Mario saving the Princess.

    Just a matter of time until Sony employs a dude named Mario XD...
