Shane Birkinbine of Bentonville, Ark., used “Super Mario Maker,” to pull off all the stops in his pursuit toward marrying the love of his life. For those unaware, “Super Mario Maker” lets users create levels.
Birkinbine configured the levels to propose to his girlfriend Pam Edwards. As Brikinbine’s girlfriend Pam Edwards played through the level, he directed her on how to proceed…
“It spells out your name, I think?” he says.
“How did you do that!” she shouts as the words “Pam, will you marry me? appear in blocks across the screen.
Edwards said ‘yes’ quickly followed by ‘of course.’ Birkinbine sealed the perfectly tailored proposal by presenting the ring on a mushroom.
“He saw somebody who was a stranger, who seemed most dangerous to him and he tried to defend himself,” the boy’s father, who did not want to be identified, told a local Fox News affiliate. “I think it was his natural instinct taking over there.”
Nothing warms the heart quite like two victims of circumstances beyond their control, finding solace in the companionship of one another.
At 10-months-old Scarlette Tipton lost her left arm to cancer. Her parents desperately wanted little Scarlette, now two-years-old, to have the chance to grow up with a little kitten just like her; and they couldn’t have found a better match. Meet Doc: a rescue kitten who had her right paw amputated following a car accident.
On Christmas Eve the two were united at a shelter in California. That very Wednesday, Doc had already been welcomed aboard as the new member of the family.
Scarlett’s mother, Simone Tipton, told Love Meow that Scarlette “did notice that Doc had staples on her side and said ‘owies’. I let her know that she had owies just like her, and she placed her hand on her side and just nodded. She recognizes that the cat has similar struggles as she does.”
