The Dark Knight On A Thursday Morning...

New Montgomery, SF, CA, 2/24/11
"No time to waste, old chum! The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there's beer in Texarkana!"

We've heard of the Batmobile, the Batcycle (with optional Robin sidecar), the Batboat & the Batcopter. There's a Batplane. There might be a Batsub, too. Don't quote us.

But, we didn't know there was a Batflatbed!

Batman's a little shorter and balder than I thought he'd be. Or maybe it was Alfred and Batman was riding shotgun. Either way, I didn't want to be all fanboy and yell "Hey, Batman!" like I did when I saw Dave Chappelle hanging out in front of the Palace on New Montgomery last year.

I said "Hey, Dave!" (and not 'Hey, Batman', obviously) and Dave was all "...hey!..." and it was cool. But, you never know what you'll get with Batman. Will he be the Adam West nice Batman or the angry, raspy one with the body armor?

It's best to keep a respectful, quite distance, I think. Save the "Heys!" for Dave Chappelle. Or Superman. He seems pretty easy going, too.


  1. Batflatbed would be hard to say ten times fast!

  2. They probably just call it the "Battruck" for simplicity sake. Of course, if there's a Batpickup-truck then things could get confusing.

    I've probably given this all waay too much thought...
