Olimar's journal

I've never tasted a nut quite like this. It's difficult to explain, but it tastes like...sorrow. PS: I can't shake the feeling that I've been here before. Aha! This must be the exact spot where I crash-landed last time!

Sales pitch

This common, ordinary nut somehow reminds me of myself and fills me with sadness.
