Hero Man

Okay, what do you think? Costume party? An attempt at superheroism? Or is he going out to fight a buddy, who is similarly decked out down the street?

Is that a punching bag he's carrying?

Screamish: Is this the voice of experience?

BE: Looks like it to me, but it might be his hitting bag, with which to hit his rivals.

Downtown guy- Yes.

Jesus H. I don't know. I think he wants to look FIERCE.

downtown guy said...

Well, he does look a little like Neil Patrick Harris.

I don't know, but he made me laugh.

How can you laugh? He is obviously Serious Bizness.

I like that he is all padded everywhere but still barefooted. Step on his feet! Kick 'im in the shins! Maybe his punches have the power of kicks.

downtown guy said...

"He's got an arm like a leg! and a punch that would sink a battleship! (Big ship!)"

What's that from?

A song called Big Strong Man about, well, a big strong man. It's from midcentury, but a lot of Paddy pub bands still do it.
