Luigi was leaning up against a pipe whistling and waiting for Mario to show up. A few seconds later Mario did what Luigi wanted him to do.
"What's the big emergency?" Mario asked.
"Come look in this pipe." Luigi instructed.
The brothers both looked in the pipe.
"I don't see anything." said Mario.
"Exactly. It's so deep I can't see what it leads to." Luigi explained.
"So then why did you call me over here?" Mario asked.
"Because I want you to go down there and see if it leads to something dangerous so we can put up a sign warning people not to jump into it." Luigi answered.
"Well why do I have to be the one to risk my life and not you?" Mario asked.
"Because you're the one with all the insurance." answered Luigi.
"What are you talking about?" asked Mario. "You're insured too." he said.
"No I'm not. My policy doesn't kick in for another 55 years." Luigi corrected.
"55 years!" Mario said in shock. "How is that possible?" he asked. "You got insured the same time I did. he said.
"True, but when I did it I chose a policy that wouldn't kick in for another 82 years." Luigi explained.
"Why in the world would you do that?" asked Mario.
"Because if I did, I would get a $50 discount on the first three months of the 6th and 92nd years." Luigi answered. "I couldn't pass up that opportunity." he said.
Mario then looked at his brother like he was insane.
"So bottom line, you have to be the one to go down there." Luigi said to Mario.
Mario was about to jump into the pipe but then Luigi spoke.
"I just remembered, you're not covered for getting injured while jumping into a pipe unless you're carrying a baby Toad named Toado in a brown basket while you do it." Luigi explained as he handed Mario a baby Toad named Toado in a girly brown basket.
"We should really change our insurance provider." suggested Mario just before he jumped into the pipe.
When Mario and Toado got to the end of the pipe it wasn't anything dangerous at all.
"Luigi, it's perfectly safe!" Mario shouted up through the pipe.
Mario got no reply.
"This pipe must be deeper than I thought." said Mario as Toado looked to his left.
Toado was so amazed by what he saw that he told Mario to look at it by pointing to their left. When Mario looked where Toado was pointing he saw an obviously man-made river wrapped around a road made of red bricks. There were also a bunch of houses so small, no one could possible go inside them unless they were really really short.
"Toado, I don't think we're in the Mushroom Kingdom anymore." Mario said as he stood up. "But I'm not gonna say that we aren't because confirming things like that usually leads to being proven wrong." he continued.
