The Goons of the Something Awful Forums recently went batty and embellished famous paintings, sculptures, landmarks, movies, and everything else with Batman iconography.

"illumn8d" found this shroud in his bathroom hamper:

"Shadowcaster" brings us this holy moment:
"Old Grendel" fondly recalls the best pope ever:
"fldr" shows Batman during his brief monastic phase:
TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851
Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
