I remember when characters were punished for being fat.
This is Donkey Kong Jr. attempting to accelerate. He is not succeeding. Why? Because he is an overweight driver, and therefore he is -- and this is Nintendo's logic, not mine -- terribly slow. EVEN IN A VEHICLE. It's not enough that they clothed DK in a hideous tanktop; they had to punish him with sluggishness too. He could reach a great top speed, but the minute he clipped a corner, he was reduced to nothing. "Mario Kart": fat-shaming you for over two decades.
