What is Theme Thursday? It’s faster than a speeding bullet! It’s more powerful than a locomotive! It’s able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! Look, up up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s THEME THURSDAY! And in case you didn’t guess by the opening, this week’s theme is superheroes.
Participants of Theme Thursday are not actually superheroes. Oh wait, yes they are. They totally are. And you need to click that button at the top and read their superness. Do it, or I’ll tell The Human Torch on you.
What exactly is a superhero? Is it someone who does good deeds? Does having superpowers make someone a superhero? We all know that Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark didn’t have superpowers, they just had really expensive toys. They also totally got by on their looks, which is okay, because we like to look at them.
In reality, I think everyone probably has some sort of special power. Especially kids and pets. They can totally pull off being a superhero. It doesn’t take a radioactive spider or a horrible life tragedy to bring these powers on. I know it has to be true because I am an eyewitness. They are right in my house. I have seen it so it must true, right? Don’t believe me? Keep reading:
Mr Knowledge (the little guy on the right)
Knows every fact, every statistic, and will be sure to tell you at least a dozen times. Known to paralyze people with his facts. This is the guy who will not only have all of the cool toys when he grows up, he will have designed and built all of them too!
There are supervillains too!
One of the most evil things out there. It takes over your house slowly. Even Captain Cuteness’s powers are useless against it. (I think its totally in cahoots with 3D-they’re on a quest together for world domination, or at least house domination.)
Still don’t believe me? I’m actually a superhero myself. Sort of…
Why do I know so much about this anyway, you ask? Well, I am married to this guy after all:
Further research on this subject may involve watching the movie Mystery Men and the disturbing yet hilarious animated series The Oblongs, listening to The Avengers soundtrack and eating a lot of spinach. Keep in mind that singing the song with the lyrics “I’m Popeye the sailor man, I live in a garbage can…” is totally optional, but I am a bit alarmed by the fact that someone actually researched different versions of it and put it on a website.
What’s your superpower? I bet you have one too!
I hope you enjoyed or at least found my post mildly amusing. All of the images used in this post were edited to kind of sort of look like comics through Picasa. This is really sad because a) I got no money or any kind of fun stuff to say that and b) I actually own a copy of Photoshop Elements that I paid for using actual money!
