DC Comics Has Done It Again!

1 Mar

March 1, 2015

DC Comics has another huge event coming up, and they promise that when it’s over we’ll have a new DC Universe. WOW! I CAN’T WAIT! Because as long-time readers know, (you know, those guys in the Ukraine jail) I’ve given up comics and in the last four or so years (since DC’s last reboot, Flashpoint) I’ve bought less than 4 or 5 comics, not counting Afterlife with Archie, which is just that good.

Anyway, in this event, characters from across all of DC’s history, regardless of era, dimension, or if they even exist in current continuity, have been brought together to battle it out.

And just by coincidence, Marvel is doing the exact same thing.

Remember when Marvel used to call itself The House of Ideas? Now they call themselves The House that Makes Changes to Match Whatever The Movies Do.

Well, the DC reboot has me excited- with a capital EXCITE!- because, if these leaked promo pictures I found online are true, they really have got it right this time! THESE are the comics and characters I want to read about! I have to hand it to DC- they are really making some daring moves!

Fun With Teh Internets: CRYING KIDS WITH SANTA

Allan Keyes brings us the next Christmas Classic. What goes together better than Santa, kids, and hysterical crying?

From December 17, 2012

He sees you when you’re sleeping…..he’s kinda creepy actually.

Bringing your children to see Santa Claus is a time-honored tradition. The kids wait with breathless anticipation for the chance to rattle off all the toys they want Santy to bring them : A pony, a football, a Red Ryder BB Gun, a dollie, some Dockers, an Ipad, a crossbow, Knicks season tickets, a subscription to  The Economist, and the complete Sanford and Son on Blu-Ray (these are some interesting kids!)

What can be more American than that? How heartwarming, how heartstring-tugging. How cute! So of course, since I’m a dirtbag, we’re going in the total opposite direction. BAZINGA!

Mom, forgive me but I HAVE to comment here. This poor child is not only being scarred for life, but he looks an awful lot like Don Knotts:

She’s crying because this is a pathetic attempt at being a Santa. HINT: Just because you may have a beard already doesn’t excuse you from wearing a REAL FAKE beard. And put on the red suit also will ya? God, put a little effort into it man

Looks like SOMEONE is getting a visit from the ghost of Christmas future! (PS- A Christmas Carol absolutely sucks, unless it’s the Mr. Magoo version, or Captain Picard is starring in it)

This is to all of you who are complaining about stores being open on Thanksgiving.

Stop it.

Stop blaming the stores. Thousands of people line up hours before the shops open, skipping food, sleep, and basic human comforts just to get a cheap TV. Blame them.

If thousands of people lined up outside of your house and waved money at you, what would you do? You’d open your door and invite them in for coffee. So until people stop sacrificing their humanity for a shot at a bargain on an iPad, leave the stores alone.
