Confound it, the batteries are dead!
Yesterday's quote, "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb," was of course a quote from Batman, in Batman The Movie. It was obscure enough that I pretty much knew that anyone that got it right looked it up. I know, that was playing dirty. But on the other hand, I get to keep the points and use them at Christmas. Bonus!
I bought this movie last week at the Walmart Black Friday sale for $3.44. I remembered seeing this as a kid and had to have it. The funny thing is I haven't seen it since I was a kid, and some of the jokes are truly funny, and would have been over my head at that time. They were genius with obscure clues to a crime. Example: "It happened at sea...... C? C for Catwoman!"
Things I have learned from Batman:
1. If ever I would like to be anonymous, all I have to do is put a mask over my eyes and give myself an exotic new name, and none of my friends, family or co-workers will recognize me.
2. Life is so much easier when everything is clearly labeled.
3. Even Batman can be distracted with hints of sex, and doesn't get it in the end anyway.
4. Even bad guys have a mother, every one.
