Snack Time With The Evil Geeks

Lunchboxes were a rite of passage growing up and the Evil Geeks got together to discuss their most memorable. Many heated debates were spurred over these around the lunch table, so don’t forget to weigh in and tell us what yours was.

I loved this fucking thing. It’s the only lunchbox I ever remember having. I’m still strangely proud of owning this. Shit, I’ll rep Super Mario 2 until the day I die. Not to mention, you already know my feelings on Zelda 2. So this was a gift from the heavens for me. What’s a little strange is that it’s actually promoting the Super Mario Brothers: Super Show, which I was a big fan of. You know, the one that had a Zelda cartoon on Fridays!? Yet, that’s what Mario and Luigi looked like on the show, but not Link and that insane Hyrulian knight he’s fighting. To top it off too it’s being presented by Nintendo Power in conjunction with some company called Aladdin? That’s all kinds of weird. It seems like they are trying to capitalize on the show without actually saying that that’s what it is.

Such primitive technologies! How could they possibly live like that?!?! Regardless, this was a stunning find, so get out your tiny little brushes, because it’s excavatin’ time!
