Preliminary Changes for Marvel Comics now that Disney acquired them.

With the acquisition of Marvel Comics, Disney has announced a few changes to the Main Marvel characters. Of course, this is still preliminary, but here’s a taste.

– Ironman will appear in the next Jonas Brother’s movie.
– The Xmen will now include a clumsy rabbit that can’t tell a lie.
– Wolverine will be played by a Golden Retriever.
– Spiderman will blow kisses to fly from one place to another.
– The next Incredible Hulk Movie will have the Hulk duet with Elton John called “Green is not so Mean”.

Did you know?

For Roman Catholics, January 5th is St Simeon Stylites’ Day. He was a fifth-century hermit who showed his devotion to God by spending literally years sitting on top of a huge flagpole. This was years before such a thing would land you as a star on YouTube.

Driver’s Ed Dad

Mark, who is now in High School, has started driving. I’m not sure what scares me more. The fact that he’s driving or that I can be in a state other than pure paranoia while he’s driving.
We’ve spent quite a bit of time on the interstate between Bismarck and Mandan going bak and forth between the exits. I showed him how to properly “drag main”, mad him park using me as the orange pylon not to hit. I even had him drive around a complicated parking lot….in reverse. I think the next item to conquer is speed parallel parking. When he finally gets his license next year, I think he should be well prepared.
