Burt Ward, Meet Stephen - The Eve to Your Margo.

Well, Doug over at I Get That a Lot is at it again.

I guess my bizarre comic book panel posts inspired Doug to use his Photoshop skills to slide me down the Bat-pole (so to speak) and rearrange me into "Robin, the Boy Wonder" by way of Burt Ward...

So very cool! Thanks, Doug!

However, with the schnoz that I inherited from my father, I think I look more like "Robin, the Boy Wonder" by way of Jimmy Durante...

Doug did what he could with my face (and he gave me hair!! WOOHOO!!), but on us Raders, certain things are just large no matter what you do. As my father said when I lost 4o pounds a few years ago...
"You can lose all the weight you want, but you're a Rader.
You'll always have a big ass."


Thanks, Dad. And apparently, I'll always have a big nose, too. And a big... Oh, yeah...

This isn't so bad after all.

Not ALL good things come in small packages.

Yes, that picture is a bit Durante-esque isn't it? How about a "Holy ha cha cha chaaaaa Batman!"

Doug did a great job! Robin suit or not, you're still "Boy Wonder" to us!!!

Mark :-)

I almost missed it! wow.

I doubt you got a big ass, but I always say a big meaty tomato in back is better than an fruit bowl (so to speak).

All I can think of when I see that Durante photo is his (really LONG) death speech in "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." (Did I miss a "mad?")

You should leave their hair off, though...but keep the mask.

Doug said...

You know, I had originally left the hair off, but it looked too much like Mr. Freeze pretending to be Robin.

And Stephen, how can you compare your shnoz to that of Jimmy Durante? That's like my mom saying her voice is as low as Bea Arthur's. Brenda Vacarro, maybe.

chris - "Holy ha cha cha chaaaa Batman!" is genius!!! I'm stealing it. :)

amrk - Thank you, sweetie. I'm probably pushing "Boy" Wonder. How about "Teen" Wonder? "Middle Aged" Wonder?

shirley - Oh, it's meaty alright. And fatty. And jiggly. But ain't nobody that's seen it has complained and they've all come back for at least seconds, so it's doin' the job. :)

aaron - Bald Robin. I'm not sure the world is ready for that. But I think it'd be hot!

doug - Mr. Freeze posing as Robin. Now, THAT'S a premise no one in comics has ever written! Call DC right now!!!

java - It ain't right, it it? :)

alanda - Rader with hair. 'Taint fittin', it just 'taint fittin'!!!
