The Japanese know we're suckers for anything Mario-related. So when a guy on eBay puts up some official Mario "Bath Bombs" for sale, people in the states love it for two reasons: it's Mario and it makes you smell like fresh flowers. Drop Mario into your hot bath and he'll fizz you with his water-jet pack and make you feel all fun and gamer-like. Clean as sunshine, too. Bidding ended at a lame 2.35 / $4.11 for these suckers. Guess Mario isn't that much of a blast when it comes to cleaning up.
