The New & Not Necessarily Improved Batman

It was Batman Day earlier this week, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the creation of the Caped Crusader.

What better way to help celebrate than to have Zack Snyder – the director of the in-the-works Batman vs. Superman – tweet out a new image of Ben Affleck as Batman.

Interesting choice. Just a profile headshot, not really giving much away.

Except that Batman doesn't seem too interested in personal grooming. There's a day or two's worth of stubble on Affleck's cleft chine.

But I guess when you're busy fighting crime and the Man of Steel, maybe shaving isn't the top item on your To-Do list.

You're Bad for Business, Kid

A four-year-old in Connecticut has been banned from the Doughnut Inn for being rude.

Here's the story. The kid asked a larger woman if she was pregnant. Innocently. He actually asked if she had a baby in her belly. He's four years old.

The kid's mom was mortified, but the woman he asked was cool, and all was well.

Except that it happened in a doughnut shop, and someone who works there was offended. So the next day, when the mom and the four-year-old returned to the shop, the ban was issued for the young man's rudeness.

The mom's angry, but try to see it from the doughnut shop's side. If a kid is telling customers that they look pregnant and they're not, then the customers are going to think twice about buying that doughnut or muffin or whatever, and go to the salad bar down the street.

From a business perspective, this kid had to go!

If Sharks Could Fly...

You've probably heard of Sharknado. The made-for-TV movie was something of a hit last summer on the Syfy network.

In it, waterspouts pull sea water filled with sharks out of the ocean and dump both into the streets of Los Angeles, wreaking havoc. It was so popular that Syfy is presenting Sharknado 2.

Actress Tara Reid returns from the original movie, and she told GQ that a sharknado could actually happen.

"I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually," she told the magazine. "Which is crazy. Not that it – the chances of it are, like, you know, it's like probably 'pigs could fly.' Like, I don't think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornados. There could be a sharknado."

Lucky for us she was able to take a break for working on her double doctorate in marine biology and meteorology to work on the Sharknado franchise, huh?

Leader Supremely Upset

You've seen the Jib-Jab videos. The ones where you can take the heads of yourself and others and insert them into a preprogrammed animated greeting card that will have you appearing as an elf at Christmas or a leprechaun on Saint Patrick's Day and more.

Well, there's a new video making the rounds on the internet that's better than those. This one features North Korean's supreme leader, Kim Jung-un, doing all sorts of unKim things.

Dancing, holding hands with President Obama and more.

According to a number of news reports, Kim is not happy about the video.

North Korea made a formal request that China help get the video banned, but China hasn't been able to do that yet. No telling what Kim will do next to get his retaliation.

Meanwhile, if you've got some selfies with Kim, I don't suggest you try to tag him on Facebook. Not yet, anyway.

Put Your Tray Tables in the Upright Postion, and Don't You Dare Tweet

A Minnesota man was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight in Denver for taking to Twitter to voice a complaint about the service he'd received at the gate.

He didn't like that the clerk at the gate wouldn't allow his entire family to board at the same time, so he tweeted about it.

Something about the "rudest agent" in Denver, mentioning her name and the gate number, and tagging it with not being happy with @SWA, Southwest Airlines' Twitter handle.

The agent said she felt threatened, so the whole family was asked to leave the plane. They couldn't get back on board until the guy deleted the tweet.

Yeah, that definitely averted a public relations crisis for Southwest. Go check out their Twitter page to see how well the deletion worked…

Is It Hot or Is It Just 50?

9 Countries, 9 Men, 1 Winner - Photocall
The trailer – some would call it long-awaited, some would say what the heck is that? – for 50 Shades of Grey has been released. And it's hard to tell if it's gangbusters or a fizzled firecracker.

Lots of teasing – presenting Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in short clips – lots of tight shots of non-specific skin and fabric and some guy's abs and – wait, is that a riding crop?

The movie won't be released until Valentine's Day, and there will probably be more trailers dropped along the way – you can count on that! – but if the trailer is an indication of what the film is going to look like, this could be one of those instances where the reader's imagination is far better than the director's vision.

"Sometimes My Leg Just Gets Away From Me"

A few weeks ago, we talked about Aviva Drescher from Real Housewives of New York City throwing her prosthetic leg at a castmate at Cirque restaurant. The episode capturing that event aired over the weekend, and Aviva chatted about it with Extra, among others.

She says the leg toss wasn't premeditated – she was angry, and she had a knee-jerk reaction.

Her phrase, not mine.

And she thinks the whole thing – the event, the discussions about it since then – is funny.

Yeah, because when I think funny, I think flying false limbs...

And the Biggest Cojones Award Goes To...

… a confessed armed robber in Newport, Delaware who's suing the pizza place he tried to rob four years ago and its employees for tackling and disarming him during the attempted robbery.

His suit – which he filed from prison – saying that they treated him roughly unnecessarily.

Yes. He tried to rob the place, his gun fired during the attempt, and he's suing the people who stopped him from completing the robbery.

He says he should be awarded $260,000.

How about the pizza place sends him a pepperoni slice and they all call it even?

Come Get It ... What?

Pharrell's new video was released yesterday. The follow-up to "Happy" is titled "Come Get It Bae."

The tune is catchy enough in a repetitious sort of way, and the video is fine, featuring a variety of models dancing for Pharrell's movie camera. Miley Cyrus makes a cameo appearance, and sings background too.

But the thing causing the most discussion: what exactly does "bae" mean?

Lots of theories out there. These are the top two:
  1. A shortened "babe." Granted, both words are one syllable, but it's far easier to pronounce a consonant and a vowel than to struggle over a consonant-vowel-consonant combo, don't you think?
  2. An acronym for "Before Anyone Else." Meaning your bae is your number one, whatever you define number one to be.
Let's see if this makes it into the Webster Dictionary this year – we can go from there.

Different Farewell Offer to # 2

On September 7, the New York Yankees will be honoring Derek Jeter on his impending retirement at Yankee Stadium.

On that same day, the Show Palace – a gentleman's club in Queens – is offering free admission and two free lap dances to anyone associated with the Yankees organization.

Jeter himself, according to The Huffington Post, will get unlimited lap dances, food and a lifetime pass to the club. That's his thank you from the Show Palace for "his years of service as a New York Yankee."

Plus, any fan showing up at the club on September 7 wearing a Jeter jersey will get free admission.

And the nude dancers will be painted in Yankee pinstripes.

All Mariano Rivera got was a rocking chair made of broken bats.
