Summer job opportunities for the bat boy.

I have absolutely nothing to say that is in any way related to the picture above. I was simply looking for something to say today (still...I got nothing) and thought I'd find inspiration by googling "weird news." This picture came up when I clicked "images."

But...wait. Isn't this that bat-boy the Weekly World News is always on about? Since I stopped doing my groceries at "Poverty Supreme," I haven't really seen those papers anymore. My grocery store carries lots of dreary women's magazines, with diet tips and recipes for TEN MINUTE MEALS!! And icky celebrity scandal rags. I kind of miss the weird ones.

I wanna know about the aliens that live under my thumbnails, or how Elvis is running a bordello out west, or Satan's image has been seen in the smoke coming out of some middle eastern oil refinery, or how the bat-boy's doing in school. Does he have a girlfriend? What bands does he like? Can he come over to my house this summer and eat some mosquitoes?

I can't believe you posted this picture today. I swear that last night I took the kds to Barnes and Noble and they saw this picture on the cover of a new book. They laughed at it for a long time and asked if the kid was real and we had a good time ... small world.

Have you checked out Bat Boy's Book of 10-Minute Meals? I have one word for you: scrumptious!

Although, I don't see why he feels the need to add mosquitoes to everything.

Man, I love the Weekly World News. Every now and then I pick up a copy. The articles are quite witty, actually.

You have Bat Boy, we have Rat Boy (true) a strange little villain who burgled houses and crapped on the living room rugs. And did other ratty things. google it if you don't believe me.

The Weekly World News headlines were always my favorite part of trips to the grocery store as a kid. World's fattest woman weds world's thinnest man! BatBoy was always a fave.
