Bulgarian Rhapsody?!

In Which We Find That Wolverine Skipped the Entire Underpants Grappling Section of The Workplace Harassment Manual, That There Is Never a Piece of Food That Can’t Be Improved By Shoving More Food Into It, And That The X-men Don’t Understand Kitty And Never Will Because They Are Stupid And Old And Smelly And She Hates Them Sooooo Much!

There Is One Undisputed X-men Strength: Ball Specials!

The Russian government is none to pleased that Soviet-era monuments in Bulgaria, like the one depicted above, are being defaced with decidedly pro-Western iconography: namely superheroes. Bulgaria has been officially requested to “take measures to prevent such incidents in the future, bring those responsible for breaching the law to justice and putting…the monument in order.” In addition to Captain America, Wolverine, Superman, Wonder Woman and Robin, the repaint job also celebrates the villain Joker, a generic green army man, and the less traditional, but very American, superhero icons of Santa Claus and Ronald McDonald. The spray-painted insignia on the bottom reads, “In step with the times.”


Kitty Pryde is hiding a crippling color blindness!

If you are going to wear my gloves, you wash the dishes!!!

I am the best at what I do, and what I do is wedgies?

Logan knows in his heart that Sir Francis Bacon really wrote Hamlet and Bill Shakespeare is just a Gol’ Darn Phoney!

Ooooh, Garokk, I meant to call. I did. But I, er, just lost your number…?

That’s how Kitty likes her men, hard and shiny.

Miniaturized Wolverine and Nightcrawler should never have entered into the Kitchen-Aid to taste the whipped cream while it was still whipping.

This pose was the original inspiration for Sylwester Ambrosiak‘s Ofiara Izaaka.

Kitty knew she shouldn’t walk alone in the dark in the first five minutes of a Law & Order.

That leg snake could not have been easy to put on.
