UR MR GAY! Super Mario Galaxy artwork holds a mirror to your homosexuality

There's something about we gamers that seems to give us an innate ability to home in on any and all homoerotic material and make as big a deal of it as possible. This would help explain why everybody's jumping on the 'news' that if you try really hard, you can almost pretend that Super Mario Galaxy's cover artwork is a covert accusation that, and I quote, "UR MR GAY".

How do we crack the subtle code contained in the image to discover the juicy gay treasure within? It's very simple, actually. Look at the text above, and pay attention to the letters used to spell out our vulgar convolution. Every letter of UR MR GAY has a little starry sparkle on it, while the other letters are blessed not in such a manner. Under the weight of such evidence, how can we not draw the conclusion that Nintendo is made up of hardcore homophobes who think we are all Mr. Gays?

This has already lit up our community blogs (join our community and blog today!), but considering everybody in the Destructoid staff room has been snickering immaturely all night, we figured maybe this ridiculous discovery deserves some mainpage love. Actually, it totally doesn't, but we're not known for being sensible here on The 'Toid. Go to Sr. Serious' Serious Game Blog of Seriousness if you want something more mature.

Hahaha ... gay.
