Captain Fantastic

Just to get your minds briefly off of electionly nerves, take comfort in knowing that other people around the world aren't letting the prospect of prez Palin ruin their day or corrupt their inner child. Take this kid for example, who has just legally changed his name to "Captain Fantastic Faster than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine The Hulk and the Flash Combined."


Well done, my friend. Way to buck the unimaginative title shackles enforced by The Man. Though god help you if you ever need to go to the DMV, because you're not going to be faster than any superheroes letalone the 95 year old no-legged man behind you when it turns out your name is too long to put on a form. Step to the back of the line. Meet me at window number 6. Sir, are you a terrorist? 

Also, I hope this kid makes an awful lot of money in the next few years because otherwise it's going to be hard to convince anyone to become Mrs. Faster than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine The Hulk and the Flash Combined.

But truly, brava for bravery and creativity. Weird little wonders make the world go 'round.



  1. hey hannah,just read your comments on the article "Democrats Plan a Party" in the NYT. quits like it. i'm an Indian and i've been closely following the US presidential election campaigns. you have a different (may be even realistic) view about the entire event. happy to see that there are Americans who think differently. people should always look at the larger picture and not focus on irrelevant things. way to go, hannah.


  2. correction : it's not quits like it
    it's "quite liked it"

  3. Well hannah,
    I read your comment on the patton page,.

    Yeah, I think the bucket is the best way for all of us COM, patriots to go.
