I could have gone my whole life without ever knowing this fact. But now I know it and now you too, know this fact. In Mario Kart Wii, Donkey Kong has mouths on his feet.
If I have to live with this image and thought in my head, so do you. It is only fair. Plus, it is a little bit interesting that this is due to an error that applies the wrong texture to Donkey Kong’s feet. Thanks, Super Mario Broth! I learned something new and I hate it.
On the character selection screen of Mario Kart Wii, looking closely at Donkey Kong's innermost toes shows a red texture resembling painted nails (left: normal view, middle: zoomed in). This is actually a mapping error that applies Donkey Kong's mouth texture to his feet (right). pic.twitter.com/3aq3jVUyP3

I do have to wonder: what would it be like to live with mouths on your feet? Let’s ask Donkey Kong, the loveable ape with more mouths than a god, what he thinks about the whole situation.
Oh... I’m terribly sorry Mr. Kong. Please understand, we all feel horrible about this and we are here for you.
