Super Mario Bros. 2

Revisiting an old classic on my new Game Boy Advance version, I also decided to re-read the Wikipedia entry about the game. I stumbled across this chestnut:

Due to its unique style of gameplay and set in a completely different world, Super Mario Bros. 2 has become one of the most popular games for the NES and has made a continuous impact on the entire Super Mario Bros., including adding now-typical enemies such as Shy Guys, Bob-ombs and Pokeys and introducing the concept of Luigi being the taller and thinner brother.

Emphasis is mine here. It got me to thinking about comparing the Berger brothers to the Mario brothers (why are they called the Mario brothers...Mario Mario and Luigi Mario?). Which one of us is more like Mario and which one is more like Luigi?

I report, you decide.
