If the League were super...





from the Caption Contest currently running at the Superman Homepage

How much does it take to get Superman drunk, anyway?

The League said...

That's a good question. And what would Superman drink if he had a cocktail?

Superman probably drinks Zima.

That is probably Bats' bottle of Johnnie Walker Red.

For some reason that now I hold in contempt for forfeiting the last 3 minutes of my life, I clicked on the link and read the proposed captions at the Superman homepage.

That was the saddest attempt at humor I think I may have ever witnessed. I am not saying I am the funniest guy in the world, but there wasn't one caption that was even remotely witty or comical. Perhaps my knowledge of all things Super isn't deep enough to catch the funny insights and play on words that were meant by the Super-fans, but by any criteria those posts were horrid.

Do they even know what a Caption contest is ?

I am no dumber for having read that site. May God have mercy on their souls.

See, I am so much dumber now, I screw up that last sentence. I am obviously dumber for having read that sight. And I blame the League. Damn you League. You owe me 5 minutes.

The League said...

yeah, the caption contest is never, never funny. It does promote return readership to the site, but it's still awful. Unfortunately, I too often feel like I have to source images, links, etc... Sorry about that five minutes. You may subtract that time from any of the number of hair brained schemes which you saw fit to include me in.

I just realized. According to the current mythos of Superman, he has to use his heatvision or some other exotic process to cut his fingernails.

The League said...

Yup. He uses a little reflective shield and heatvision to shave. In the Silver Age it was explained that his hair and nails simply didn't grow, but that's been abandoned.

Since we're talking about Superman's personal habits ...

Could Superman die from hunger? Does he even need to eat? If he swallowed a grenade and it exploded inside him, would it kill him?

I saw an episode of The Adventures of Louis & Clark where Supes swallowed a bomb and always wondered.

The League said...

I think its been mentioned that Superman doesn't know the answers to some of these questions. He hasn't ever bothered to try to not eat for too long. However, he is invulnerable inside as well as out, so there's no real reason he can't eat a bomb.
