POW… Batmobile Sells For $4.2M, To The Bus Stop Robin

January 20, 2013

An Arizona man with a special fondness for caped crusader Batman and his sidekick Robin bought the original Batmobile driven in the iconic television series with a bid of $4.2 million at an auction on Saturday. Rick Champagne, a Phoenix-area logistics company owner, came away with the black, futuristic two-seater featured in the “Batman” series starring Adam West and Burt Ward from 1966 to 1968, following a flurry of spirited bidding at the Scottsdale, Arizona, auction. In 1965, the concept car was bought for a nominal $1 by noted customizer George Barris, who had a mere 15 days and $15,000 to transform the vehicle for the show. He has owned it ever since. He said it was time to part with the popular car and let a new owner have the Bat keys.

To the bus stop Robin.



DC Comics To Out Gay Superhero, Holy Kleenex Batman, It Was Right Under Our Nose’s And We Blew It !!!!!!!

May 21, 2012

Gay DC character: Who will it be? At this point in time, legendary comic book company DC — you know, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc. — isn’t revealing too many specific details surrounding the upcoming reinvention of a presently unnamed hero, though some believe the homosexual superhero will be an existing, established character.

This isn’t the first time that DC had dabbled with delivering gay comic book characters to the masses. After going back to the drawing board with the “New 52″, the company released books featuring Batwoman as a lesbian and Voodoo as a bisexual. Additionally, the Teen Titans franchise features an openly gay character named Bunker. However, despite previous claims that the gay superhero would be a new addition to the universe, DC has reversed its statement, proclaiming that one of its established characters is scheduled to come out of the closet.

 “Holy strawberries Batman! We’re in a jam!”



Obama Does Stand Up, No One Laughing Due To Gas Pains

May 1, 2011

President Barack Obama exacted his revenge Saturday after weeks of attacks from his would-be Republican challenger Donald Trump, joking that the billionaire businessman could bring change to the White House, transforming it from a stately mansion into a tacky casino with a whirlpool in the garden. 

 The president said Trump has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama’s birthplace. After a week when Obama released his long-form Hawaii birth certificate, he said Trump could now focus on the serious issues, from whether the moon landing actually happened to “where are Biggie and Tupac?”

Obama jokes, while no one laughs at the gas pumps.
