This is a picture of my wife and I a couple of years ago when we went to Disney World, and I didn't get the irony of it until after we did it. It's me, my wife, the Joker (on my shirt), and the penguin! :D

Been a while since anyone chimed in here - no, it isn't Thursday (or personal) but my Bat-ADD might kick in before then.
Anyhow, I've been going through vintage high school yearbooks on the classmates site, looking for interesting photos for another board I post at. I also keep my eyes open in 1966-67 yearbooks for Bat-fad items.
This was from the 1966 Plymouth-Whitemarsh book from Plymouth Meeting, PA:

Note B & R in the middle and bottom photos, and also note like at my high school, shaving cream was involved...

That's a cool find, Chrisbcutter. I always dig seeing peoples interpretations of costumes etc at the time the show was still airing.

Here's a couple of pics I took at the World of Wheels back in the 70's.

I find this hilarious since the original Michael Meyers Mask was a Captain Kirk mask made by Don Post Studios! Superheroes from two eras united at last -- via a villain!

I know it's not Thursday but... ;)

I've just posted another "new" entry on my Bat-Blog...this time we're going back to 2009. It's a story that involves a lot of firsts, my first time in the United States, my first ever Comic Con and my first time meeting board members that have become family to me. It's a bit of a long read but as always there's some cool photos to help tell the story.
