#BanjomanofLimbo #TheThreeLivesAccord




Whenever he thinks on it, The Banjoman guffaws at the pointlessness due to arbitrariness of the myriad forms of rule making he has seen across countless worlds and realms.

On Earth 17, The Three Lives Accord, 2034 decreed that lawyers and politicians be replaced with single-match, winner-take-all bouts of the arcade version of the 1983 two-player Mario Bros. game as the universal means of conflict resolution for all of humankind’s disagreements.

25 cents each.
