One of those great rules in life is that in most cases, the simplest explanation behind a question is also the correct one. Consider the recent attempt to cap the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill that was suggested by an anonymous plumber, for instance. Who is this mysterious figure? How can we possibly identify him or her? Leave it to Stephen Colbert, as he knows the answer. Check out this clip from last night's episode of The Colbert Report in which everyone's favorite 11:30pm Comedy Central pundit puts the pieces together to call out the brains behind the containment cap. I think you'll find that it's quite a familiar mustachioed face, and oddly enough it all makes sense in the end. I mean, really, who else could it possibly be? You get three guesses and the first two don't count.
Of course! It could only be Mario behind the fix! After all, he had just as much to lose in the spill as anyone else. Also, we know for a fact that he has experience cleaning up spilled gunk. Just ask the residents of Isle Delfino.
