Jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg.
The Batmobile lost its wheel
And the Joker got away.
Hey!

I offer the Dungeon philosophy for alcoholic beverage consumption: I can drink any given amount ... as long as it's given!

And an Irishman is not drunk, so long as he can reach out & grasp a blade of grass to keep from falling off the face of the Earth.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !

Mongo said he wanted one, so we acquired one for him. Geo Barris probably made about 20 of them, they're not really rare. Built up from a Lincoln Conny frame. The 1st was built from the old Lincoln "Futura" show car. All the rest are "replicas", there's one about 2 miles from me, down the street at the Volo Auto Museum.

Well, when my ten year old son was much younger, we dubbed my 98 Lincoln Mark VIII the Turtle Mobile. Does that count?

At least, so far, Mongo has never asked to borrow it. He seems to prefer cars named after mammals (Bat-Mobiles, Mustangs, Pintos, Bisons, Broncos, Cougars, Impalas, Rabbits).

That sounds cool. My best local museum is the gun display room at the Winchester Mystery House.

You fully realise that we could have built a Bat-Mobile Replica out of that Lincoln !

I think that the Volo Museum has a web sight.
If not, I'll have to harass the brothers that own it....went to high school with one of them !

You know that sounds like Volvo Museum. With all these inebriated 10 ringers, there is sure to be some confusion.

Ooh, they do have a batmobile. I remember going to San Carlos to see that as a kid (as well as the 007 Aston Martin).

An interesting complement to a batmobile would be the reworked Lincoln from "Animal House"; that turret is worthy of a 10mm.

Clearly that website lacks the 10-Ring appreciation for savoring the subtle nuances of temporal existence.

Yeah, the first thing that gives away that I'm not having an out of body experience is when I notice that I'm all achy.
