In my last post, I said readers could look forward to various things being entered here in the coming days. Among the list I provided was this item:
“At least one link to a news article which greatly amuses me, makes me roll my eyes, or instills within me the desire to smack a politician in the nutsack with a pipe wrench.”
Well, I’m making good on that one already. Here you go:
Yep. You read that right. The line of the story is, of course, this morsel:
“They have turned comic book characters into ideals, and worship them they do!”
The jokes just write themselves, don’t they?
Of course, I could argue that the only such characters I so idolize are those females who choose to run around in skimpy costumes and fight crime – hopefully while taking time out every so often to engage in lewd activities with other females who choose to run around in skimpy costumes and fight crime. I extend that idolatry to those women here in the real world who do their level best to imitate said characters while attending gatherings such as the forthcoming Comic-con.
Oh, and I also dig Batman, because he’s awesome.
What would Jesus do if he ever came face to face with this bunch, and their ilk (who are not to be confused with good, decent people of faith)? I’d like to think it’d go something like this:
[Begin Dream Sequence]
Jesus: Come here.
Wackjob: Yes, Jesus?
Jesus: :: cock-slap :: Now, get out of my sight and send in the next asshole.
[End Dream Sequence]
