Breaking News

I was chatting with a friend of mine just now...she knows that I have a fondness for making stuff up so I'm not sure if she believed me when I told her that a tornado had just hit Atlanta- it struck CNN and the Georgia Dome, among other places- anyway, today is gonna be a busy day for You Tubers and conspiracy nuts, so I'd better get in early and be the first with the real story.

Scoop!


Evangelicals and insurance carriers are likely to label this bizarre event as an "act of God", but I think it's more reasonable to look at it as evidence of superhero activity.
I mean, ask yourself- "what would it be like if the Flash fought the Weather Wizard in real-life?"

The aftermath would look like this:


Since the press coverage only mentions a dozen or so injuries and no fatalities ( I hope), we can safely assume that the Flash won this particular conflict and thwarted the Weather Wizard; after which the Flash raced to and fro at 'super-speed' ,catching falling debris before it could crush hapless pedestrians...from what I didn't see, the Invisible Woman may have been present at the Georgia Dome, using a 'force-field' to keep the rafters from falling, but that's mere speculation at this point. It would be imprudent to start any rumors before all the reports are in.

Details to be posted as they arrive.

While I was checking blogs here at my mother's house in Georgia, a tornado was spotted ten miles away. Didn't see any superheroes, though.

Speaking of rip-offs!..and up pops 'Smartphone'..
I think the superhero qoutient is sadly underestimated in these situations.

Whim- Yeah, that Michael Vick shitstorm was the worst...

CW- I didn't see the Invisible Woman but that doesn't prove she wasn't there.

JS- I am America's #1 most reliable news source! My own internal study proves it.

Evangelicals and insurance carriers - haha!

I lived in Atlanta for a couple of years -- I was very surprised to hear the news, but had not heard about the superhero connection.
