One pong, two pong, three pong, four. How much can you go for more, more, more?

"ARGH!!! STOP... TAUNTING ME... STUPID PONG AND ITS EVILNESS..." Mario growled as he furiously moved the analog stick on his controller, nearly breaking it in the process as the pong ball went bouncing between the two paddles on the wide-screen television set at fast speed. The Italian American, red-capped plumber became nervous as sweat came down from his head, moving closer to the TV, inch by inch.

The pong ball kept hitting the pad, but it then missed the right pad, going overhead.

Mario was frozen solid, barely moving as he changed to being all white. A wind breeze came into the room, making the whole place seem... chillier.

"WHY MUST PONG BE SO EVIL!?" Mario cried out as he fell to his knees, looking up at the ceiling and calling out with rage, "WHYYYYYY!?"

A chuckle was then heard outside of the room, causing Mario to turn to is right, to see the figure standing in the doorway.

"Because you're the worst pong player ever. Simple as that."

Mario growled, attempting a punch, but being smacked in the nose with a pong paddle. Falling on his rear, Mario held his nose, rubbing it as he moaned in pain, while the figure (who was Luigi) chuckled.

"You'll never be able to be a professional at pong if you don't play it right," Luigi stated, shaking his head as he waggled his right index finger, "You gotta be the pong. Be the pong..." He repeated eerily as he left the room, shutting the door.

Mario turned around to face the computer screen. He took in a gasp, and then closed his eyes, muttering, "Be the pong... be the pong..."

Mario opened his eyes, only to see that the pong on screen came towards him, impacting him in the right eye. Mario blinked with his left eye, and after several seconds, started wreaking havoc in his room, screaming in pain as he struggled to get the pong ball out, but failed miserably.
