About me...again

My friend Billy, from from Buzzard Billy has tagged me tell six secrets about myself. I really have no secrets. When I'm not celebrating the joy of Starfleet Command and spreading the word of Batman, I'm generally in deep meditation pondering on the ramifications of the current war between the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps.

So have decided to reuse these little tidbits about myself as they are the closest things to secrets that I have:

- I was born from a fog somewhere in the hills of West Virginia. I'm not sure who my father is, but after some extensive research I have narrowed it down to either plant or animal.

- I'm not sure which year or century I was actually born, but I crawled out of the woods in 1970.

- I have two older half-brothers who are relatively famous: Pumpkinhead and the Mothman.

- The Mothman and I used to keep in touch on a regular basis, but me and Pumpkinhead haven't spoken since he threw away all of his DC comic books and started reading Marvel comic books instead because he claims they're "more adult".

- I speak four major languages: English, Spanish, Klingon, and Thanagarian.

- I've never left this planet, at least at anytime that I'm aware of.

- I picked up the newest Fantastic Four comic book off the shelf at the newsstand and thumbed through it before I knew what I was doing. Upon returning home, it took five showers to make me feel normal again (I think I'm going to call that store and ask them if they'll cover up those types of comic books so that such temptations can be avoided in the future. Dr. Doom? I mean come on).

- Our lives growing up were pretty normal. Me, Pumpkinhead, and the Mothman fought just like all brothers do, we all played sports in high school, listened to country, heavy metal, and rap, got decent grades and participated in school events, etc.. Some people thought we were a little odd, but really, we're just like everybody else.

*The pictures in this post are (in order) me, Pumpkinhead, and Mothman's senior pictures- we never really did care much for tuxedos.

I had no idea that both Pumpkinhead AND the Mothman were your brothers! Truly, we are in the presence of greatness here.

How does Batboy fit into the family tree?

PS. I don't know if you read The Gods Are Bored or not, but your blog was given a first paragraph mention there today.

Thanks, Billy. Yes, we here at the First Church love The Gods Are Bored even though my good friend, Anne, is a Marvelite heretic.

PS- Batboy is our cousin. Pumpkinhead really used to pound on him when we was kids.

Poor Batboy. Beaten as a child. Still a child. And now an out-of-work child. I wonder if he's still checking the caves of Afghanistan for Osama even though WWN (RIP) is no longer there to print it?
