Holy Surrealism, Batman!

I suppose after life has persistently imitated art, the next stage is for all distinction between life and art to disappear entirely.

You may not believe this without the link, but the latest headline lawsuit is against Warner Brothers and the director of the latest incarnation of Batman movies.

It’s not a disgruntled actor, nor even PETA protesting the use of pejorative animal imagery in modern media.  No, it’s the mayor of the town of Batman, Turkey, who is suing the film makers not only for the use of his little city’s name without permission, but also for “emotional distress,” claiming that the town’s association with the superhero is the cause of a number of unsolved murders and a high rate of suicide.

I’d like to suggest Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the mayor in the next movie.
