Dumbass Idea of the Week

What I don't understand is why amazing costumed vigilantes don't exist in real life.  This guy, who can't even come up with a better name than "Phoenix Jones," dresses in a suit of molded body armor--which admittedly looks pretty well done--and apparently just goes around calling the cops on people.

Well, his antics met a hiccup when he pepper sprayed a group of people outside a club, apparently for no reason.  One of the women in the group beat him with her shoe until the cops arrived and booked him.  He faces a $5,000 fine.

Seriously dude, if you're going to dress like a badass then perhaps you should actually BE a badass.  Just once I'd like to see a real-life costumed hero who can actually throw down like Batman.  I guess we're just cursed to have dorky weirdoes for heroes.

Yeah, that was pretty hilarious. It gave us a good break from the normal horrors and idiocy streaming forth from the news...

It just goes to show - there's no such thing in real life as "super heroes." It's just us.

Oh Dear!

God bless normality! It's fast becoming The Pearl of Great Price.

Terrible to see insanity becoming The New Normal!

People can be who or whatever they want. Sure it's deviant and not normal, but a world without deviant behavior is a pretty boring one in my opinion.

Who else would we have to laugh at?
