  • They didn't even have the decency to switch it with a non-spring loaded Robocop?

  • Ok, seriously now? Half the time I see these posts I can almost believe a stock-zombie could be fooled. I mean, it’s reasonable to assume someone unfamiliar with a comic series might not know the difference between Booster Gold or a Batman bad-guy. Shite, that Mer-Man swap out was downright conniving.

    But this? Cripes, anyone with eyes and at least a passing knowledge of the last quarter century of popular culture oughta have a fighting chance of noticing this peg-turd.

    Goddam, TRU.

  • i'm telling you MBB, my suspicion is that most of these are comitted either by employees themselves, or friends of employees who conspire to "stick it to the man."

  • I can about accept a stock-zombie could be fooled. I mean, it's reasonable to accept anyone alien with a banana alternation ability not apperceive the aberration amid Booster Gold or a Batman bad-guy. Shite, that Mer-Man bandy out was absolute conniving.
