Earthquake recovery efforts are just like playing Super Mario Bros.


In this image, TV Asahi uses Super Mario Bros. to illustrate current progress in quake recovery efforts.

That's Prime Minister Naoto Kan as a well dressed Mario with curiously long arms.

But uh-oh! Looks like Kan is about to fall into an infinite pit!

If this were Super Mario Bros. 2/USA, I'd have used Princess Peach because she can glide across long chasms.
