“A public union employee, a tea party activist, and a CEO are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it. The CEO takes 11 of the cookies, turns to the tea partier and says ‘watch out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie.’ ”—From Shelby Wright, several degrees out. (via heartfeltrobot)
What do you do when you meet a stranger? I often shake their hand, ask their name, ask if I can be of help. You know, all the things we do in polite society.
But not the alien invader of Smallville, Kansas! Check out what Superboy does every time he meets a stranger:
"Hey sailor, new in town? Don’t mind me, just scanning under your clothes with my x-ray vision."
Thank goodness this guy had a uniform on under his clothes. Otherwise Superboy, defender of privacy, would have been scanning a naked boy. I mean, if Clark swings that way, there’s nothing wrong with that. But I think we’re agreed it’s creepy to look at everyone around you naked.
