Two dudes from Texas were hospitalized over the weekend after fighting over the affections of a lady. That in itself isn't remarkable — love has been a catalyst for violence since cavemen were whacking each other with wooly mammoth bones!

The strangeness of this particular story lies in how the fight went down!

After video-game enthusiast Eugene Thompson and his girlfriend with whom he shared an apartment got into a heated argument, she called her estranged husband and he stormed on over!

She let him into their apartment, and that's when the situation really got wacky!

An altercation ensued so Eugene did what any Nintendo fan might do, he whipped out his replica master sword from The Legend of Zelda and defended himself!

Uhh, go ahead read that last sentence again. We'll wait.

HE UNSHEATHED A REPLICA VIDEO GAME SWORD!!! What in the 8-bit f**k!?

street in spain named after super mario bros

How would U like to live on a street named after Super Mario Bros?

The Arcosur Neighborhood Association of Zaragoza in northeast Spain seem to LOVE the idea!

On Saturday, Arcosur residents celebrated the unveiling of "Avenida de Super Mario Bros."

Highlights of the celebration included attendees wearing fake black mustaches, a dancing Mario mascot, and a violin/cello duet performing the Mario Bros' immortal theme song.

For those of you out there who would prefer to live on a different video-game themed street, Sonic The Hedgehog, Space Invaders, and The Legend of Zelda streets are in the works.

Here's what Arcosur neighborhood association president Antonio Almudi Miranda had to say about naming streets after video games:

"We are people who grew up living with video games. We know them very well. I'm 25. I'm the same age as Mario."

To commemorate the opening of the street, as well as Super Mario's 25th anniversary, Nintendo reps handed out prizes during Saturday's unveiling of Avenida de Super Mario Bros.

Would U like to live on a street named after Super Mario Bros? If not, what video game-themed street would U want to live on?
