A really stupid story about Nintendo's Mario

So after my husband got back from E3, he told me this story:

The man who does the voice of Nintendo's Mario character was at E3.  He sat at the Nintendo booth, behind a screen, doing the voice of Mario.  So, as people walked by, Mario would call out to them and have conversations.  As my husband watched, he overheard Mario's attempt at playing comedian.  (You have to imagine this in the high-pitched, horribly accented Mario voice from Mario Party and Super Mario Galaxy and all the other Mario games.)

Mario: I tell you a joke.  Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
Someone in crowd: Why?
Mario: Because he's-a dead.

There is a shocked silence as the joke falls flat, dead on arrival.  Mario, instead of moving on like a sane person, attempts to explain the joke.

Mario: Because the monkey, he cannot hold on to the tree anymore.

I wish I had been there to hear/see this!
