How does the Fireflower work?

Seriously how does Mario obtain the power of shooting fireballs. Does Mario just put it in his pocket and shoot? Does he eat it? Or does he just hold the flower in his hand?

everything is something he eats, and it then warps his sense of reality.  all he is doing is walking around in the real world while tripping balls and believing that he is seeing these weird gumbas and stuff.  also, that is why he can jump 3 times his own height

Now that we're at it, how the hell does his clothing colour change?

Two years ago.  TWO fucking years ago!  Gaaaaah! 
 
Super Smash Bros. confirms that he holds the flower.  But it turns invisible once he picks it up.  His suit also changes color because of the chemicals that the flowers release.

There's actually a reason? Wow. Here I was thinking this would be a joke thread.
So how comes the fire flowers in brawl don't disapear when they are picked up? And how comes Mario can do fireballs in Brawl without his costume changing?

@PK_Koopa: Mario can throw fireballs in Brawl for the same reason Sonic can suddenly spawn a spring under himself.  Magic.  Also, the fire flowers don't disappear because everything in the Super Smash Bros. games aren't real: the characters are action figures, the items are toys and the backgrounds are elaborate constructions made of construction paper, tape and glue.  All that is evidenced from the intro sequence to the original Super Smash Bros., where you can see that the famous hands (Master Hand and Crazy Hand, the right and left hands of Shigeru Miyamoto, respectively) are simply placing these inanimate objects in a room for them to come to life through the power of Miyamoto's mind.
