Batman Turns 75!
Batman turns 75 this year!  Somewhere, Bob Kane is telling people how he invented Batman’s 75th Birthday.  
A brief timeline of Batman!
1939 - Batman appears in Detective Comics in what will be the last actual mystery/ sleuthing story Batman will ever appear in despite title of “World’s Greatest Detective”.  A pretty obvious rip-off of Zorro, The Shadow and a half-dozen other pulp characters, Batman manages to do what Superman did with science fiction and somehow become the melting pot for pre-existing characters, existing as the one who would survive the 20th Century by getting better media exposure. 
1939 - Batman sensibly uses gun
1940 - Batman unsensibly disarms himself
1940 - Dick Grayson is added in Detective Comics #38, leading to conversations by post-1986  fans of Batman talking about how a Batman with Robin makes no sense and how the early stories were better.  All 74 years of them.
1943 - Insane/ kinda racist movie serials made that actually probably show you exactly what the “Batman is more realistic than Superman”  and “Batman is cool because anyone can be Batman” theories look like put into practice.  (ie: inept man-child and teenager look like circus people, bumble around)
1947 - Seriously. nobody gives a shit about Batman anymore and won’t for quite some time.
1950’s - Batman and Robin are outed by famed pschologist, Fredric Wertham.  Batwoman and Batgirl suddenly introduced.  Ace the Bathound.  Batmite makes perfect sense.  Batman’s chin so sharp, can open aluminum cans.  Gigantic props litter Gotham.
1950’s - Batman comics are f’ing nuts.  
1960’s - some really cheap cartoons get produced
1966 - Batmania!  ”Batman” appears on CBS starring Adam West and Burt Ward.  Kids have no idea it’s a comedy.  Popular culture has notion solidified that all appearances of superheroes in media must be portrayed as a very particular flavor of camp.  Show actually only runs three years, but gives us trifecta of Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt and Lee Meriwether in decidedly well designed Catwoman suits.  Introduces notion of Batgirl and makes the Batmobile the coolest car in America.  Apparently, West and Ward had a non-stop, three year sexual smorgasbord.
1966 - DC decides not to cancel Batman comics, which it was about to do.  Seriously.

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THIS STUFF
I BOUGHT IT
MONTHS AGO
TRIED IT ONCE
I THOUGHT IT WAS HORRIBLE
IT WAS STICKY AND CEMENTED MY LIPS TOGETHER
IT GOT ON EVERYTHING 
IT DIDN’T SUPER-STAY
I THREW IT INTO MY DRAWER WITHOUT ANOTHER THOUGHT
AND THEN OUT OF THE BLUE I DECIDED TO TRY IT AGAIN
HOPE IN MY HEART, PEACE IN MY SOUL, I DECIDED TO TRY IT AGAIN
I READ THE DIRECTIONS
AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I SAW THE LIGHT
I COULD SEE CLEARLY NOW, THE RAIN WAS GONE
TURNS OUT
YOU HAVE TO PUT THE RED STUFF ON FIRST
WAIT FOR IT TO DRY
COMPLETELY (I MISSED THIS STEP BEFORE)
IT SHOULD BE SO DRY AND IF YOU KISS THE BACK OF YOUR HAND, NO MARK SHOULD SHOW
AND THEN I PUT THE BALM ON (I ORIGINALLY TRIED PUTTING THE BALM ON FIRST…. DON’T DO THAT.)
AND IT GOT RID OF ALL THE STICKINESS
AND THE RED DOESN’T EVEN GET ALL UP IN THE WHITE BALM
IT WAS A MIRACLE 
THIS STUFF IS THE FUCKING BEST
IT STAYS ON FOR A REALLY LONG TIME
IT DOESN’T GET ON ANYTHING
AMAZING I WANT TO BUY THIS IN FORTY SHADES OKAY I ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO TRY IT

NO BUT DO KEEP IN MIND THAT IT REALLY DOES STAY ON FOR A VERY VERY LONG TIME
AS IN, LONG ENOUGH TO FORCE YOU TO SCRUB IT OFF AT THE END OF THE DAY
THIS STUFF ISN’T FOR THE WEAK, THIS IS FOR THE POWERFUL BADASSES WHO WASH THE BLOOD OF THEIR ENEMIES OUT OF THEIR CLOTHES AT THE END OF THE DAY LIKE ITS NOTHING

IF YOU RUB TOOTHPASTE ON YOUR LIPS IT COMES OFF EASIER

YES THIS IS A GOOD TIP I HAVE HAD THIS EXPERIENCE
GIVE IT A LIL SCRUB WITH THE OL’ PEARLY WHITE RUB A DUB DUB
IT WILL COME OFF
IT WILL DO AS YOU COMMAND
THIS MAKEUP   O B E Y S
IT   S T A Y S


This……I mean, THIS!!!
