It’s me! Please! It’s really me!
Blog Guy, I heard a weird rumor from my barista’s used car dealer.
You know the Wonder Woman character from the comic books?
He said Wonder Woman got really rich from those stories over the years, but went sort of crazy, and that now a comic book cartel is keeping her under wraps to avoid bad publicity.
Now she lives as a glamorous recluse in her own little world, trying to convince strangers of her true identity by showing old sketches of herself.
I’m listening. Go on.
They say she lives in a fancy high-rise apartment and once in a while you can see her at the window, always dressed in a gold lamé gown, pounding to get attention until her handlers drag her back into the darkness.
Hmmmm. Yeah, that all sounds fairly plausible to me, except for one thing. Wouldn’t people recognize her instantly from her gorgeous hair, which was so black it actually looked blue in the comics?
Wonder Woman? A blonde? I’m sorry, you’ll have to come up with better evidence than just wild rumors before I’ll repeat something that nutty in this reputable blog.
