Gone zooin’.

§ August 5th, 2013 § Filed under low content mode, superman § 6 Comments

Hopefully I will be at the Los Angeles Zoo today, taking pictures of buff-cheeked gibbons and pointing imprudently at the mighty mandrill. In the meantime, all of you behave yourselves and also try not to think about why, why Superman would keep these innocent creatures in such inappropriately tiny cages.

UPDATE: Alas, the trip is postponed. The mandrills are safe…for now.

    I don’t know, they don’t look so innocent. Especially that mini-dino that looks like a frog-squirrel.

  • Walaka says:

    “Zoo” is a euphemism. They’re all dead and stuffed.

  • Chance says:

    Walaka is surely right. Ergo, they all died of natural causes and Superman is merely preserving them.

    This is what I choose to believe.

  • Doug Hudson says:

    Nah, that’s too mundane for Supes. They have to be alive in suspended animation, perfectly safe and un-aging, until someone breaks the case and they get loose and start eating people.

    “Someone” quite possibly being Superman, if he is feeling particularly dickish.

    Nice Beatles reference, Supes

    “Nice Beatles reference, Supes”

    and in 1981, the prefect time for Beatles references!
