An attempted terrorist attack outside the Daily Planet has just been foiled by Superman. While his co-workers Gary and Dave are still marveling at what they just saw, Superman, having re-assumed his Clark Kent secret identity, saunters into the room putting on his glasses, a wry smirk in the corner of his mouth.

SUPERMAN: Hello fellas, what did I miss? That terrorist attack still happening?

GARY: Clark, you just missed the awesomest thing! Superman was here and wasted those psychos! It was nuts!

DAVE: What happened to you, man? We turned around and you were gone.

SUPERMAN: (hiding smile) I had to go ... to the bathroom.

GARY: You know, it's funny how you're always in the bathroom when Superman shows up.

SUPERMAN: Oh? That is kinda funny ...

DAVE: I think it's even funnier that whenever something scary happens, you just run away like a complete fucking pussy.

GARY: Yeah! Even when you're not in any danger at all. Remember when we saw that purse-snatcher outside the Plymouth Tower? He was running away from us, yet you blew the scene anyway!

DAVE: I forgot about that! Jesus. How does one become such a colossal pussy, Clark? Bad parenting?

SUPERMAN: I wasn't running away! I told you guys, I had to go to the bathroom. I, uh ... have IBS.

DAVE: More like IVS. Irritable Vagina Syndrome.

Dave and Gary give each other a pound, laughing. Superman heads for his desk.

SUPERMAN: Ha ha. Very funny, guys. Good laugh. Now, let's get back to work. I better write up a piece about that terrorist situation.

GARY: Right. You gonna describe what you heard over the sound of your own crying and shitting?

Dave and Gary laugh some more.

GARY: It's a good thing Superman's always around to save our ass, cause you know this chickenshit isn't gonna lift a finger to help.

DAVE: (imitating Clark's voice) Oh gee! A kitten is stuck in a tree, I better go take a shit!

    The Fracking Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    ‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.

    Your Dog is Totally Worth Refrigerated Food

    Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
