Could It Have Hurt Kevin Spacey To Say "Superfool" Just Once?

Superman. Is he children's literature related? Well, if I had my way we'd have all the classic Superman comics available here in the children's room where the kiddies to read them to their little hearts' content. So... yes. Sure. However, I made the slight miscalculation of actually seeing Supeman Returns yesterday and the words of Peter Travers came to me...
“In the interest of full disclosure, I’m down with the schizoid, sexually hung-up manic depressive who gets off by climbing into bat drag with built-in muscles to take revenge on evildoers for the murder of his parents.”
-Peter Travers in his review of Superman Returns, Rolling Stone, July 13-27, 2006.
Agreed. Just the same, if you're like me and feel that the latest Superman travesty has burnt the retinas from your eyeballs with its horridness, high thee over to Whither Laffs and check out these slightly lower budget Superman movies. My personal favorite was Superman Vs. Man and Superman, if only because I think it's funny to see Superman threaten George Bernard Shaw. Best of all, no product placement.
Thanks to What Adrienne Thinks of That for the quote.

Mmmm. Right you are there, sir. There's nothing like a glass of Bushmills Bushmills at the end of a long hard day. Did you know that whiskey making at Bushmills draws on centuries-old distilling history, including the first licence to distil whiskey, granted for the county of Antrim in 1608? Bushmills. It's what America's having for breakfast.
