The Batboys spread ridiculous propaganda to the GCPD about Batman when he’s not around.
#’he takes between 5 and 13 dance classes per week for dexterity’#’his pump-up mix for patrol is every hilary duff song ever released mixed in with a lil duran duran’#’his facial muscles were tragically damaged in his youth and he literally can’t smile. don’t take it personally’#’he’s got an obsession with japanese culture. in the cave he wears a pair of japanese house-slippers and makes us call him ‘bat-senpai’.’#’sorry he’s running late. designing women marathon- u know how it is’#’the tragic irony of batman is that he is actually allergic to bats. all he wants is to be one of them’#’you know he STILL can’t tell any of us apart? that’s why he calls us ‘chum’ ‘#’at this point we’re pretty sure he CAN fly- just that he chooses not to’#’one time i LITERALLY SAW HIM take candy from a baby. like. it was probably poisoned but u don’t know. not for sure’#’he is very flattered when ppl call him ‘lil buddy’ just trust me he’ll love it’#’you should have seen him when he learned bats don’t actually wear belts or underwear’#’did you know he’s never been to the bathroom outside of his house’#’his biggest fear is someone making a pun he doesn’t understand… it plays a pretty big factor in his origin story actually’#…i said batboys but it’s pretty clear i just mean dick grayson right
Can you imagine Harry trying to parent his children and tell them they need to settle down but then James Sirius just pulls out his edition of Harry James Potter: A History and goes, “When you were my age you followed an alleged mass murderer into a tunnel, faced a werewolf and nearly got killed by dementors. I think I can go to The Bent-Winged Snitches concert.”
Okay, if the point of being a Jedi is to surpress all passion, fine. Okay. Sure, even Vulcans get to cut loose once every seven years, but I suppose having an insanely calm ruling class is probably good for the social order. You wanna live an ascetic monastic life? Hey, knock yourself out.
And so then the point of being a Sith is thus to let your passions run wild, draw strength from them, destroy your enemies, etc. Okay. Fine.
Then how come you go to a Sith academy and lo and behold, everybody’s got metal underwear and a single bed? (Yes, I looked.) You get beaten like a bloody flagellent and fed to starving monsters and tortured on weekends. You slog through your training, achieve a sufficiently high GPA, and get to be a Sith Lord, and what do you do? You stalk around on the bridge of your bigass starship, brooding, and glare out at empty space wishing you could bitch-slap the entire galaxy simultaneously. (They all do it. “Here’s your diploma, congratulations, here’s the keys to your star destroyer…”) They don’t even get a comfy easy chair to brood in. They all gotta stand up or else levitate in lotus position.
Do you get regular massages? No! Do you have legions of hot alien women waiting on you hand and foot? No! (You get one apprentice, who will always try to kill you, and will usually dress like a freak and wear too much eye makeup in the meantime.) Do you at least get good food? Possibly, but always off camera! Do you get to sleep in late? No, because other Sith will use the extra hours in the day to take your starship so that they can brood on it instead!
What’s the fun of giving in to your unbridled passions if they’re such LAME passions!? I mean my god! A pack of Catholic high school girls could cut looser than the Sith! If you’re going to be evil, why aren’t you people ever having any fun!?
No. 168 “The Unarmed”
Rest In Peace…
to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.
And an honor to the many people in Ferguson standing up, fighting, hoping that some kind of justice can be had in the midst of chaos.
At last, a new Revolutionary Times comic has arrived.
And not a moment too soon. A little levity in these serious times is what we needed. Thank you, gentlemen.
Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriationGreat to see a disney show deals with this topic.
As soon as I saw this my jaw dropped and I rushed to find a gif set. I’ve become so jaded of people being appropriative or defending it (interestingly enough, people outside of a culture seem to think they can decide whether they are appropriative or not, despite having limited knowledge and no authority…just based on their own interests I guess). I noticed the appropriation right away but didn’t think they would address it. I’m so happy they did, it makes me respect the show more, and I already like it and think that’s it’s reminiscent of Disney shows c.2004. This isn’t quite on the level of That’s so Raven addressing racism and sizism but it’s close.
Edit: It was also surprising because the whole episode was about Topanga and Cory’s daughter not being herself for popularity, so I really didn’t expect them to call out the appropriation.
