Curses! Here comes Big Red!
Blog Guy, I’m a young female who wants to become a super heroine, sort of like Wonder Woman. I know she was an Amazon. Any idea where she bought her costume?
I guess Amazon.com would be too obvious?
Oh. That makes sense. You’ve written about a place called Super-Chicks R Us. Are they still in business?
Yes, but they just had their annual clearance sale, and their best super identities are gone.
What’s left, then? I’m not picky.
Let’s look at their Website. They have “Skinny-Legged Woman.” She gets a cheesy purple dress and hairy-armed gloves.
Oh, then maybe I AM picky. What else do they have?
I can get you a good deal on “Confused Thrift Shop Woman.” It says here she has the power to right wrongs.
Yeah? Looks like she doesn’t even have the power to dress herself. Is that all?
No. There’s also “Big Red,” a “masked red-headed vixen whose temper explodes when she goes after evil.”
Really? Now we’re stooping to cultural stereotypes about redheads?
It says here she has a real potty mouth on her. She curses like a sailor.
Why the #*@&$#% didn’t you say that in the first place? I’ll take it!
