Boy Wonder

In the somewhat near future, my company has its annual end-of-summer event for which we take over a local amusement park for a day. My wife and I were discussing it last night.

Her: I hope its nice when we go.
Me: Yeah, me too.
Her: So I can ride the Batman!
Me: Superman. There is no Batman.
Her: I thought there was a Batman.
Me: There's a Joker or something but no Batman.
Her: What did I want to ride last year?
Me: Superman.
Her: Isn't there a whole Batman-themed area there?
Me: Its pretty much superheroes in general. Its not limited to just Batman.
Her: So, Superman it is.
Me: Good, cos I don't want to hear that you want to ride the boy wonder. I'm your boy wonder!

It got crass after that. I'll spare you.

And yes...I'm tabulating the results of the vote right now. I'll post the winner this afternoon!

Happy Friday everyone!

At ours, they have a Batman and a Robin ride. They are together, but seperate, and nowhere near equal. Batman kicks Robin's pansy ass.... although Robin is much, much faster than Batman.

but they have Batwing, don't they? we are talking about Six Flags, right? i'm pretty sure there's a Batwing. i've ridden that. unless i'm just halucinating... which is possible, i suppose. but no, Batwing is the flying coaster, if i recall correctly. Superman rocks, too, though.

uhm, i thought it was generally acknowledged that the boy wonder was a bit, uhm, heterosexually challenged? i'm not trying to get into your business ... not that there's anything wrong with that. i'm just curiuos. :D

So there, boy wonder.

ever wonder why 'boy wonder' never grew up to be 'man wonder'? do they wonder if he will ever be a man? if he grew up to be 'man wonder' would they change his name to 'wonder man'? hmmm. i wonder. the more i type wonder, the more wrong it looks. i wonder why that is?

Hahaha... if we gave boy wonder a super hero name it would be The Avenging Manly Man. (Chris translates to: The Cold Beer Bottle Man). Both good options, I think.

Some time ago, I really needed to buy a car for my organization but I didn't have enough cash and couldn't purchase something. Thank goodness my brother suggested to take the loans from reliable creditors. Therefore, I did so and was happy with my secured loan.
