Here is the main thoroughfare of downtown Louisville, KY. One of the city's claims to fame is the famous wooden object one chases away unwanted visitors with (also used in baseball) called the Louisville Slugger.

This one belonged to D.W. Griffith who used it to control his extras. Other notable Louisvillians include Tom Cruise, Sue Grafton, Grady Nutt, Hunter S. Thompson, Muhammed Ali, Gus Van Sant, Johnny Unitas, Zachary Taylor (who?), Diane Sawyer, Colonel Sanders, Edwin Hubble, Dian Fossey, Irene Dunne, Anne Braden, Tod Browning, Rosco P. Coltrane, Ned Beatty, John Audubon, Buck & Bubbles, and Louis Brandeis.

A few blocks up from that bat is this bat.

A few blocks back from the first bat is this bat. Seriously!

Which means ... if you carefully put the clues together ... one of the people listed above is the Batman.

This sign was on the wall outside a local fast food joint, in an exclusively African American neighborhood. I assume it means ... this area safe for white adults to kidnap black children. At least let's hope that's what it means, the other option is just too horrible to think about.


  1. Have to find a few more Bat, don't you think?.... :)

  2. i _must_ have that garage door!

  3. I can't believe they consider a "Popeye's" a safe place. "20% off all 5 piece meal deals for abused spouses!"

  4. inhollywood, that was in fact a Wendy's which is FAR more qualified, since I believe Wendy herself was given up at the steps of the restaurant when it was called Meatsquares.
