RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


April 17th, 2008: So after I wrote this comic I did a search for "Australian Batman" to see if DC had ever gone in this direction before. I ended up with this news article: Wariner beaten by Australian Batman. Awesome!

It's not even disappointing when you click through and find out it's about a track race between one Jeremy Wariner and the victorious Daniel Batman, because you realize that now you have a chance, one day, of meeting MR. BATMAN.

And now, several people have written me to tell me that Daniel Batman is actually the direct descendant of the guy who founded Melbourne, John Batman! Melbourne was almost called "Batmania". There is an alternate universe where people are living in Batmania, Australia. If this is not the final nail in the coffin for Leibniz's "We are living in the best of all possible worlds" argument, I don't know what is.

FINALLY, many Australians emailed me to let me know "shrimp" are called "prawns" there, which I knew! It's just the Australian tourism commercial which popularized this particular Australian stereotype used the word "shrimp" in it, because they were concerned that Americans wouldn't know what a prawn is. So basically what I am saying here is that you have made your bed now it is time to sleep in it
