    This article is still awesome. I love Pikmin.

    How is getting peed on suicidal? But this is funny I guess pikmin are almost as cute as bunny good reference. I like the one holding "we ate your donuts" sign.

    Same as above mate - red Pikmin die in water. Any kind will do :)

    Hahaha, I still remember when this was first posted and it isn't any less funny today. Good work Justin-of-the-past! Although it wasn't until now that I realised...well... the 'being watered in Animal Crossing' one isn't really suicidal? Unless of course it's a reference to how easy destroyed they are by some jerk visiting your town. Okay let's just go with that. The last picture with the bomb rocks is still the most hilariously clever thing ever though.

    It's a red Pikmin and they die if they touch water. So diguising yourself as a flower in the hope of getting watered is a good plan.

    Oh of COURSE! Sorry Justin, I forgot about that! I will never question your logic again! Although now that you mention it; every Pikmin except blue Pikmin and Bulbmin have the same vulnerability in water, not just red. Although that's just nitpicking now. :U

    I have kept this article saved on my favorites, glad it has been brought back to life for new eyes to witness.

    Trust Justin to add in a Sonic reference almost instantly. Still, I remember reading this years ago and finding it hilarious, and I still think it's great now. And if A-level English has taught me anything, it's that the greatest pieces of literature are the ones that endure. And this certainly has. You, sir, with your university education and your references to Shakespeare in Resident Evil articles, are why I come to this very site. Well done.

    Why didn't you repost all of the images? Butchering a classic..You iconoclast.
  • GR_JustinTowell - October 22, 2012 1:19 a.m.

    Don't worry, I made the original post and I did the re-edit, it was just a couple of tweaks. The images used to be 480 pixels wide but our new site demands 620. As a result, most of them needed a little re-jig, which sometimes wasn't possible. Well done for noticing though :P
  • ultimatepunchrod - October 21, 2012 6:20 p.m.

    Classic indeed. That was quite funny.
  • crazor89 - October 22, 2012 4:47 a.m.

    Great article, classic funny!
  • TurtleAssasin33 - October 22, 2012 12:07 p.m.

    Haha this article is hilarious. The close tray one is awesome.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - December 28, 2013 2:24 p.m.

    Pikmin die and its all your fault, but who cares when you can generate more!
  • shawksta - December 28, 2013 3:22 p.m.

    Still a classic
