It's no secret I peek at Reddit when I'm working weekends. But last week its contributors made something too hilarious not to share: An extremely dark view of relationships, in the context of Super Mario Bros.

(Above) The guy was clearly going all Mr. Bitterpants over the state of a just-friends relationship with some girl who is probably never, ever going to give it up for him. It was then followed up with many pictures and revisions. Here are the ones that were the funniest while still forming a logical progression:

Here's a "Fixed that for you" from someone even more bitter.

Too dam funny. Sometimes, being in the "Friends Zone", isn't always a bad thing. You're in the Friend Zone for a reason. It means WAIT until you mean a person feels the same about you. Or live for the next 20 years together in the "Hate Zone"

When it's right — you'll know it. It's the best thing EVER. There is NO ZONE — there is only "making out" and "hot sex", and it's totally worth waiting for.
