Winning Olympic Golds at everything save for Ladies Synchronized Swimming (obviously) of which he is an avid supporter of!
HA! True. He’s not only a man of steel, he’s a man of many interests.
Great title for a poem, ‘Man of Many Interests.’ Bet you could put that to verse?
Oh what a great idea! I just may give that a try! 😀
You should – I really enjoy your verse as it is always a touch surreal; touch silly, in fact all the right ingredients. Go for it.
Ah thanks Mike. By gum I think I will go for it!! 😀
Sheesh! All those weaknesses, it’s amazing he ever feels safe enough to leave the house!
I know! Superman is very misunderstood. He’s really is no different from anyone else except for the flying, the made of steel thing and his kryptonite allergy.
And you’re stronger?!
I make it to work each day, and I also battle the forces of rude Canadians so the rest of the world can go on with their illusions of the politeness of the North.
All the while, projecting a cool sanity rarely found outside of cereal box characters.
If that ain’t strength…
Okay you got me there. If you want rude and mean people come up here! It’s the meanest city I’ve ever lived in. I’ve never experienced anything like it, and this is the third province I’ve lived in.
Possibly part of the problem is that you have “provinces” instead of proper states and cities…
Besides, I’m from new York. I have meanness covered.
Provinces rock pft…I’ll see your New York and raise you a Grande Prairie (AB) I’ll bet they would kick their…
I’ll remind you that we have rush hour commutes, and crossing the street which is a full contact sport.
You’re going to have to come bigger than that…
Well people seem out to kill people here. No regard for human life on the road or in parking lots. You’re in their way, you better move or be hit, even if you have the right of way.
Margaritas are everybody’s weakness.
True. Superman likes his with pepper around the rim.
You forgot weed.
*slapping forhead* I forgot about crack cocaine too. (I went back and added it in.)
Try to be more thorough next time.
You mean that it’s not key lime goat pie?!
It is! But don’t tell Superman that. He thinks it’s just regular Key Lime Pie. That Lois is such a cut up!
*sshhhhh* secret’s safe with me. Sneaky Lois!
Superman needs to carry his own phone booth with him nowadays!
LOL!! A portable fold-up one! 😀
Linda, that is so bloody bizarre and completely awesome that I am going to cook my next goat curry in your honour. I am now thinking heavily about Lois’ key lime pie… yikes.
What? Goat curry for me-h -eh-eh-eh-eh?
We’ll have Lois’s Key LIme pie for dessert!
Now that was obscure… to me at least.
Oh if you’ve never read Robert Benchley you are really missing out. He was a member of the Algonquin Roundtable. I’m a total Algonquin Roundtable nerd. We’re a small group. Me and four other people (two of whom are dead).
The whole list had me screamin’, but Jimmy Olsen’s rendition of Honey I Miss You sent me into absolute convulsions!! One doesn’t often encounter absurdity distilled into its purest form, but that– THAT was it!!
And the fact that someone besides me remembers Mr. Mxyzptlk– with obvious fondness– astounds and pleases me no end!! If only we could make Al Gore disappear by tricking him into saying “Erogla!” Damn it, it’s worth a try!!
Superb, awesome, amazing, and devastatingly funny post, my dear Super-Linda!!! : )
Oh Mark! Somehow I knew you would like Jimmy Olsen singing Honey I miss you! And you remember Mr. Mxyzptlk too? Oh how I loved those old Superman comic books. They were my favorites. I always wanted to be Lois Lane!
Erogla!! ahahah! We should all try saying that every five minutes! Of course know Al’s luck it would just be the internet that disappears!!
Oh Mark, thank you so much for your wonderfully funny kind comments. You have made my day!!! 😀
