What is a doctor if not just a body plumber?ID: gy37hf2ID: gy3px0k
So, in the US when interviewing for admission to medical school a classic question is "What will you do if you're not admitted to medical school this year?"
The standard/ "correct" answer is to say something about how you'll be incredibly disappointed and will be working on any weaknesses in your application interim until you can apply next year (more research, volunteering, etc.)
An older doctor I know told them (in the 80's) "I'm not sure, maybe be a mechanic? It's kinda the same right? Figure out what's wrong, try to fix it?" Definitely could put plumber in there and have the same answer.
And in fact, a lot of what I do (image guided procedures on arteries, veins, the bowel, and other body tubes) is often liked to plumbing.ID: gy4px8p
This sounds so unfair for ppl who don't have the money to wait a yearID: gy4kliv

Maybe Dr. Mario is actually a prequel. He was hit with a malpractice lawsuit, and ended up becoming a plumber as a result.ID: gy4osd5
Or maybe he has been doing night school since the early 80’s ever since he found large roided out monkeys and lizards in the sewers and was looking for a way to get out and finally got his degree in 1989 so that he could finally make a break.ID: gy58l5d
"Knowledge is power, so I started going to night school" Roy Koopa Night schools are canon in the Mario universe so it may be a possibility :pID: gy33l99
The story has been told backwards...ID: gy4qayk
Still easier to follow then Kingdom Hearts
in 1982 mario started medical training, in order to pay for his student loans he took on side jobs such as plumber, martial artist, tennis/baseball/socceID: gy4mui7
Don't forget professional racing driver.
Maybe he paid for medical school by working as a plumber?
Exactly, not everyone has rich parents or wants to get buried under a mountain of student loan debt. I think it's extremely admirable that he worked so hard to achieve his dreams of becoming a doctor. Plumbing is hard work, i can't imagine how tough it must be to combine it with medical school, which is also notoriously intense. And not only that, he had to support his deadbeat brother as well while he was slacking off doing hallucinogens, thinking he's a ghost buster, not to mention stop an evil turtle dragon from kidnapping the royal Princess. Not because that's his job, just because it's the right thing to do. Mario is a goddamn hero!ID: gy35njl
Guy made the wrong call, tbh. Plumbers make bankID: gy3f19w
With better hours, FAR less student loan debt, and very little chance of lawsuit.
Probably best his medical career was mostly a one-off.ID: gy3nyyh
I always heard that plumbing is a really shitty job and you have to put up with a lot of crap.ID: gy40opl
A doctor hired a plumber to fix his pipes and when the job was done in under 10 minutes the doctor was asked for $500.
“$500?! Even I don’t make that much in one hour!”
“I know” the plumber replied, “I was a doctor too.”ID: gy3kp6h
Maybe Luigi payed for Mario's medical school with the money from his mansion?ID: gy3r7f2
Have you seen the size of the gold coins he regularly pick up? One of those things is enough to make you set for life.ID: gy4c43g
Nah those are only about 1/100 of a life each.ID: gy3dgly
Plumbing may not make as much as stripping, but it's honest work.ID: gy4mi8w
Pipes, poles, both metal cylinders...ID: gy3qbmx
Stripping is honest work, too. They've literally nothing to hide
Maybe Dr. Mario is actually Mario’s twin and their are actually 3 Mario Bros.ID: gy3d3ik
And "Doctor" is actually his nameID: gy3aw9k
Luigi surname is Mario tho.ID: gy3m0zt
My theory is that Dr. Mario is the original, and the Mario/Wario bros are a series of increasingly imperfect clones.ID: gy4xf89
I saw something on the internet about this recently. Cited a few specific clues that hinted that Mario and Dr. Mario are different people. Can’t remember if it was an article or a YouTube video, otherwise I would link it.
Maybe he went to NP school online while plumbing, then took an online "PHD in nursing" to call himself a doctor. That would still be very scary and happens in real life!ID: gy4hydg

Someone knows about the modern day “Mario.”
1981 to 1990 is more than 7 years.ID: gy32kgd
He was carpenting in '81. He was plumbing in '83.ID: gy33obl
Well he had to change professions to pay for medical school.
There’s different requirements in different countries, where did he open this practice?ID: gy2y3dm
At that point in time, probably Brooklyn.ID: gy2zgd5
Either Mushroom kingdom or New Donk City
He probably just got a DNP degree online and introduces himself as doctor.
Wow I should have suspected something when he scheduled me for a third colonoscopy in a month.ID: gy34gnk
The guy has a thing for diving into tunnels...
I knew those mushrooms he prescribed were janky.ID: gy32gg6
So is arsenic
I feel like the wording you are using is similar to website advertisements recommending alternative medicine.
Or looks like a scientology advertisement.
Some say that Dr. Mario is the third brother of Mario and Luigi.
It's very likely that the Mario Brothers are called like this because their Last Name is Mario. So that would make them Lugi Mario, Mario Mario, and No-first-name-given Mario. 2 Plumbers and 1 Doctor. 😛
Mfer got me addicted to shrooms
Maybe he was using his plumbing income to put himself through night school? Ever think of that?
"Doc, my drain is clogged!"
"Sir, you're just eating a cruller."
