Comics Writer Fakes Own Mauling?

Or are horses worse than we thought?

I have a question for you, and I want you to think long and hard before offering some barnyard-tongued reply.

Why do they call comic books "comic" books?

Batman is not funny. He never laughs. If Batman ever finds out he is in a "comic" book, he'll take his life with a toss of Batarang. Daredevil? Ha ha. A blind man. That's hilarious.

Want to know what comic books should be called? I'll tell you what comic books should be called. They should be called skin books. Because that's what they show: Men and women in skin-tight, comon-and-show-me-what-you-got-mo-fo, porno suits.

When will you wake up?

On Nov. 2, the voters said: Put clothes on our heros.

Dear El Duque,

On behalf of the comic book industry, we appreciate your input and will consider your repeated request to dress the heroes in modest, loose-fitting clothing.

To answer your question, they're called "comic" books because so many people who make and read them are humorous in appearance.
