Batman & Hamlet


Recommended Posts

So, my "writer" daughter explained to me that the theory online is that Bruce Wayne was actually Hamlet reincarnated.  He figured that with all the death that happened in his search for justice, that he thought he'd take a different route this time around and vow to never kill.

I responded,"Well, there's just one problem with that theory.  Hamlet isn't real."

After the laughter died down, she told me,"Well, you're not wrong."

By the way folks, now that Christmas is over, I'd ask y'all take a moment and ask yourselves how many times you bore false witness against Batman during the holiday season.  None of you know how he smells.

I suspect he smells with his nose.

Batman was based on Zorro who was based on The Scarlet Pimpernel, the original superhero. 

That had nothing to do with the humorous anecdote offered. I just happened to read it the other day and thought, cool.

I taught my 5 year old daughter the Batman smells version this Christmas.

And Batman is?

You are either making my point and you have no sense of humor, or you don't know what a joke is.

I guess you missed the part...

I'm beginning to doubt if your sense of humor is real.

This reminded me of a recent story about a man in a bar (perhaps another reincarnation of Bruce Wayne and Hamlet).  Anyway the guy was watching the news of a man standing on a ledge of a tall building.  There was some discussion in the bar about if the man would jump.  The man at the bar said that he was sure the man on the ledge would jump.  A blond (typical not normal) lady said she was sure that the man would not jump.  The two went back and forth and finally the man put down a twenty and said that he would bet the $20 that the man would jump.  The woman put down a $20 as well certain that the man would not jump.

The man on the ledge jumped.  The man at the bar turned down the money and confessed that he knew the man would jump because he saw it on a previous news broadcast.  The lady then confessed that she also saw the man jump on a previous news cast as well but was certain that he would not do it a second time.
