Just as Mario looks strange clean shaven, Yoshi looks truly odd without his round, bulbous schnoz. Then again, so does everyone.
During the recent earthquake in Japan, a Yoshi figure was unfortunately damaged, which lets us see the iconic Nintendo character in a new and somewhat unsettling light.
ACK! These are two photos of the same figure. The first photo (above, left) was uploaded on Twitter with a note that read, "Earthquake victim". Enough with the photo taking and Yoshi humiliation, please get this injured dinosaur fixed.
