Oddly enough I fell the same when ugly chicks wear Wonder Woman t-shirts.
On the one hand, yes. She's a jerk.On the other... Sometimes it takes a jerk to tell the truth.
I fully understand her feelings. I, too, know a girl whose boyfriend is nowhere near as hot as Superman.
Look... No offense, but he is nowhere near as indestructible as Superman. Like, not even close.
Thank you for this one, Mr. Tim - I was having a shitty day, but that made me laugh loud and long - I could hear this in my head perfectly.
You know, he may not be as hot as Superman, but the shirt may be a step in the right direction...
I've noticed when I wear superhero shirts, I'm more likely to go out of my way to help people. I mean, I try to be a nice guy, in general, but there's no way you can wear the giant red "S" and then just watch someone carry something heavy and not help, you know?
I bet the boyfriend in question can't even fly.
Look... No offense, but he can't shoot lasers out of his eyes like Superman. Like, not even close.
HEAT VISION."Lasers." Humph. The very idea!

Look, no offense, but his sperm couldn't blow the top of your head off and go into orbit like Superman's could. Not even close.
On the upside, I'm sure kryptonite doesn't weaken her boyfriend like Superman. Not even close.
If he was as hot as Superman, then he wouldn't need to read comic books. Probably. I'm just guessing.
For the record, I am at LEAST as hot as Superman, and I read comic books. I may not be as cut, but I'm much better in the face department.And my sperm has only blown the top off of someone's head and gone into orbit once.
And I thought only nerdy guys got off on comic book superheroes.Also, this comments thread demonstrates why Rossmay, Bonoes, and Slade Grayson aren't writing for sitcoms.
Whenever someone starts a sentence with 'No Offense' you know that they are going to be offensive and mean it.
@Anon 2:20I was making a reference to the classic Larry Niven essay "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex," which probably only one person in a hundred would get. And it's the main reason I don't write for sitcoms. I can't dumb it down enough. *sigh*
Not to mention the whole "taking what was said in the comic and turning it to other topics" is pretty much a staple of this page.
Jerry Pournelle is my father in law. Just throwing that out there.
