About this blog: I was born and raised in Livermore with scientist parents who moonlight as musicians and a brother who is much louder and much more fun than I am. I am a published and very poorly paid author of the young-adult fantasy 'I Am Not Lost,' available on Amazon, and a worshiper of Stephen King. I am a connoisseur of human folly, a huge fan of Monty Python, and full of sarcasm. I understand that sarcasm is supposed to be the lowest form of humor - that doesn't make it any less fun. 'LOL (Lessons on Laughter)' is full of the things I come across on the internet that tickle my funny bone and elicit my trademark cackle. My only goal is to brighten someone's day with the absurd, the ludicrous, the facetious, the nonsensical and the satiric. Warning: bad puns ahead. (Hide)

Ben Affleck cast as new Batman... Weirdly enough, not as a joke
Uploaded: Aug 23, 2013
The nerd world is abuzz with news of the casting of Batman in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel. Christian Bale -- for reasons I speculate involve the chafing of leather suits and constant laryngitis from the "I'm Batman" voice -- has decided to give up his mantle as the cloaked, DC superhero. In what is being affectionately called "Batman vs. Superman," the gloomy billionaire Bruce Wayne will be played by Ben Affleck.
Let's review Ben Affleck's film history. Acclaimed writer and director, Oscar nominee and winner for Best Screenplay with co-writer Matt Damon for "Good Will Hunting," brilliant portrayal of the fallen angel Bartleby in Kevin Smith's "Dogma," and the recent "Argo" blew people away.
Now let's review his history with superhero movies.
"Daredevil." A movie that has gone down in film history as one of the worst superhero movies ever made. A movie that Marvel has been energetically trying to scrub out of people's minds ever since it hit theaters.
I think to sum up the opinion of the general populous on this subject, I will refer to my good friend and renowned expert on negativity, Grumpy Cat.
What is it worth to you?
