    There are dozens of these guys out there, dressing up as Super heroes....actually trying to "stop crime". One day, someone is going to get hurt, and it won't be so fun to play dress up.

      PATROL GAL STEPS DOWN

      Famous for protecting the streets since 2015,

      PATROL GAL today announced her imminent

      COSTUME TOSS-OFF PARTY.

      "Gonna throw off the suit an' hang out in the buff," said Patrol Girl.

      "Everyone in the Bay Area is welcome to come catch my Titanium panties when I kick 'em offa my feet THIS SATURDAY."

      Huge crowds are expected for this showcase event,

      alongside a surge in the ex-basketball players for hire industry.

      STREET SAFETY ALERT -- Your peace of mind is assured despite Patrol Girl's absence from the streets c/o my drone-powered FLYING SQUIRREL SQUADRON. Feel free to feed 'em nuts as they drill down on bad guys 24/7.

        Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pigeon.
        It'll just knock over all the pieces, poop on the board, and strut about like it's won anyway.

              bcs I said fashwaaahn.

              Tellya, I can be real pernickety for a fully functional strumpethole.

              Like Chaucer said,

              "Before there beyest kinks,
              we must swell evry vein
              with blood mayde good
              for the mysteries of the Sphynx."

              Natchrlly he meant artery but they nevah knew 'bout alla that pump-up stuff in medieval times cos they too busy choppin' one anothah to sh*t 'steada maxin' out all sweetsy.

              Thing is, even if'n we got a time machines so's we can go back an' INFORM CHAUCER HE REAL STOOPID ... likely the guy ain't buyin' it.

              "You sayin' I can't spell proper, Future *ssholes?"

              "No. We're merely suggesting you're malnourished in so many ways you cannot comprehend, especially those relating to effective personal styling."

              I so love how we always where & how we are.

              Momentary exotica on a propulsively catalytic roll ... kinda thing.

            Probably the best thing on tv.

            But Australia does have a wide selection of quality, entertaining ....umm, stuff, here are a few....

            Love at First Fight
            Googly-Bear Box
            Stupid Island

            But we do have some new thrilling shows coming up, and up....

            Lego Master.......(UK of course, where all quality tv programs are made, Home renovations, endless murders contesting wills and Doctor Wh,...well those).

            David, sorry Siiiirrr David, will throw the walking stick away and sell all of his beachfront property, and do some thrashed to hell animal doc around Dynasty's, which probably doesn't involve evil oil wells?

            The Voice, Australian Ninja Warrior, Family Food Fight, Love Island Australia, Doctor Doctor, Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation, (l am not making this up) and a new season of StarGate Atlantis, (l can always dream).

            61st TV WEEK Logie Awards live from The Star on the Gold Coast, and apparently according to the site l got this empathic list from this is a must see, (yeah, tie me in a chair after a red bull binge and l wouldn't.

            The rest is cooking and cooking while travelling and murdering people while cooking and gardening while bodies pile up around you, or cooking, murdering and renovating flats pretty much covers it.

          It's not the stupid guys that's funny...it's the Batman sound track/effects making fun of the stupid guys that's funny.

          i watched a follow up interview.. and the fight wasn't the guy in the costumes fault ..he apperently was taking pictures with to woman .. and the guy in came up and bunched him in the chest .. and he was trying to get the police involved

          now this happens a lot ..my hangover costume had a baby Carlos.. and every few month some rather big guy would just walk up and punch the doll in the head.. but i was a hard plastic head.. so it was pretty much a punch straight in my chest ..

          as i said in this video i posted .. don't feel bad for the homeless guy ..getting beat up by the guy in the superman costume .. it's the Vegas strip where .. people walk around drinking ..and tend to get stupid

    2 years ago back when i was still a street performer in vegas this happened


    now the guy in the superman costume claimed he made 200-300 dollars a day.. but he must have been spending it all on drugs cause he couldn't keep a roof over his head .

    don't feel bad for the homeless guy ..the police used stuff like this to drive many of the homeless and the street performers off the Vegas strip.. well part of that was the people bragging about making several hundred dollars a day ..who where not paying taxes on it.. the business felt performers where taking money from them

    The other part was safety and terrorism fears.. they didn't want people walking around with their faces hidden..if you are on the Strip in Las Vegas you on camera with facial recognition ..

    as for people trying to fight crime in costumes.. i wonder if there aren't several laws against that kind of thing .

      I've read a few books on these guys. Some break laws by carrying weapons that are illegal in the state. The vast majority are just people that dress up in a super hero identity (their own , not a Marvel or DC character) and help the homeless. Most will just call the police if they see something wrong.

      But a few are mentally ill, and think they have real super powers. And a couple actually are trained, and in shape, and are looking for a fight. And a couple have been arrested for assault.

      The funny thing is, if you are wandering around at night, looking for a crime in progress, you can be looking for a long...long time.

      These aren't the cosplayers. They really think they are super heroes.

      If you ever watched the movie Kick Ass....there are a few out there like that.

        Most likely the example above had a police scanner in his van, and went to anything police related, but unless his Batman outfit is actually bullet proof, then it is a silly act.

        And yep, Melbourne had a Superhero event recently, so Melbourne was overrun with wannabe superheros.

        Last time something like this was on, l saw Superman and wonderwoman walk past me on Melbourne's streets.

          No. I don't mean people walking around dressed like Superman. I mean people who create their own hero identity, and actually go out at night and try to find criminal acts.

          These guys don't have conventions or events. They think they are legitimate crime fighters.
          Unfortunately, the ones that are really serious, are eventually going to get killed.
