Why, who hasn't dreamed of flying off to another country in a few seconds? Imagine that? No long lines and no excess baggage!
So as a fan, I was spending a few...ehm, hours surfing the web researching anything about the Man of Steel. I was reading the history of the character, the film franchise, the so-called Superman curse and those involved in the movies. By the way, Superman creators have implicitly characterized our hero as somewhat like our Lord. Only son came to save the world and stuff like that. Read more here to see my point.
I particularly read about Christopher Reeve, the actor who played Superman in 1978 and probably defined how Superman should look like in the movies. He broke his neck in a horrible accident that left him a quadriplegic. He advocated embryonic stem cell research for spinal cord injury regeneration which I was not a fan of, obviously. I also learned that he is a good friend of comedian Robin Williams. So one thing led me to another and so I also read the profile of Robim Williams, who is among my favorite comedians of all time. By the way, he was married to a Filipina.
I learned that Williams is an Episcopalian. In a comedy routine, he described his religion as "Catholic Lite —; same rituals, half the guilt."
Well I am trying to be a stand-up comedian...in the company pantry among my co-workers... so here is my rebuttal, as a Pinoy Catholic, to Mr. Williams' joke.
"Episcopalian Church - looks Catholic, but get half of the benefits."
Jordan, drives, shoots and scores! That's all she wrote, folks!
