Holy Imposters, Batman!

Everyone knows the Dark Knight lives in Gotham, not London...

Holy handover: Man dressed as Batman turns suspected burglar in to UK police station
LONDON – A man dressed as Batman has brought a suspected burglar into a police station in northern England.

West Yorkshire Police said Monday that they do not know the identity of the man who appeared in "a full Batman outfit" and turned in a 27-year-old suspect to police in Bradford, England.

I'm guessing it wasn't a full outfit, as Batman was known to carry knives and batarangs that would most assuredly cause most Brits to soil their armor they'd be so scared. Not to mention rope! And grappling hooks! And nerve gas! Dear lord, the real incarnation of the Dark Knight would have the Brits in a full-blown panic. A vigilante who doesn't cotton to political correctness? THE HORROR! He insists that evildoers pay for their misdeeds? What kind of sick bastard is he? Doesn't he know they they had a terrible childhood? Rather than assault those poor aspiring rap artists he should be singing kumbaya with them.

It just kicks over my giggle box to think that, right now, over in England, some dude is dressed up like Batman. Not only that, but he's running around capturing actual criminals and dragging them to the police. The utter impotence of the entire British police force is on full display here - he's dragging in non-violent criminals that they could easily be collaring without breaking a sweat. I'm guessing that the British police won't stand for this uppity peasant. I'll bet this guy is arrested and committed.

And most likely sent to room 101.

That is all.
