Overheard: Batman and The Fat Lady by Ray Printer Friendly

“Well, it certainly took you long enough. Another second, and I would have been burnt to a crisp.”

“It took me just the right amount of time—don’t concern yourself with my timing.”

“I just don’t care much for the way that you wait until the very last instant to swoop in and save the day.”

“I give you all a chance.”

“What does that mean, you give us a chance?”

“It means I wait like I do because I want you to be able to help yourselves. I’m not going to stand by and watch you die, but if there’s any chance that you can save yourselves, I’m going to give it to you.”

“You think we wouldn’t help ourselves if we could?”

“I know you wouldn’t.”

“That’s a horrible thing to say.”

“It’s a horrible way to live.”

“You’re no hero.”

“You need to lose some weight.”

“You’re a bad man.”

“You’re a cow.”

"Just who the hell do you think you are?"

"I'm Batman."

Batman's attitude encompasses the way I look at things.

...and I assume this was overheard at a weight watchers meeting with an over-zealous group leader? Member affectionately referring to him as the Skinny Nazi, perhaps?

I love the idea of Batman being a coach (or whatever they’re called) at a Weight Watcher’s meeting. Like there’s a fat lady about to eat a donut that’s fresh out of the oven, and a bat-a-rang hits it, pinning it to a wall. And Batman’s suddenly right there, and then the above dialogue occurs. Awesome.
