OK, I’ll just come right out and say it: this isn’t the worst FW gag I’ve ever seen. A little edgy (by FW standards), a little crazy (by FW standards)…if BatHam could string together another 359 of these in a row perhaps 2021 might not be so bad. If anyone wants trillion-to-one odds on that proposition, PM me please.
I still don’t really understand what that thing is supposed to be. I mean I know it’s Iron Man, but is it a movie prop, a rare collectible or what? How did lowly slovenly John obtain it? How is that jerk going to make it down those stairs with that thing? Who in Westview even has $8,000? You can buy an entire fleet of Batiukmobiles for that AND register and insure them too.
And what’s with BatYam equating comic book collecting with some weird form of marital strife? I’m sure there are plenty (or maybe a few) wives out there who really don’t give a shit about their husband’s dumb hobby, as well as plenty (a few) women who collect the goddamned things themselves. So what’s his f*cking problem, man? I have to wonder if there’s a hand-lettered, poorly taped sign on the door of that studio of his that says “no gurls aloud”.
