And Then the Ears Pop Up With a Satisfying "SPROING!"

It's not so much that Batman could be anybody you know.

It's that anybody you know could be Batman.

Think about it.

Are you concerned about illegal wiretapping, or the government's current desire to press firemen into an army of makeshift snoops? That's nothin'. Try living in Gotham, where every single person in your life -- coworker, best friend, family member, lover -- is, in all likelihood, a masked vigilante who is just itching to punch you in the face.

(It makes for some very interesting editorials in the DC Universe version of Salon, that's for sure.)

Heh, funny. At least these days they don't show Bats ripping of his mask, he just goes to some dark corner and changes.

That sounds less convenient, somehow.

But you know, the things you can do in dark corners...

Oh, don't I know it! Over the past couple of weeks, I've had to deal with Batman posing as my mailman, the manager of the local Pizza Hut, my bowling ball, and former President James K. Polk. Couldn't even be bothered to kick down the last pin, the jerk.

The NSA guys just give me a sympathetic pat on the shoulder, now, rather than spying.

MaGnUs: *coughs, nervously*

Anonymous: Heh. Even as a bowling ball, Batman's a total dickweed!
