Babe Magnet: Batbug!



Some folks take Batman lore very seriously.  And why not?  There are no laws, at least in this country, that forbid rabid BatFannage.  This particular example is very deceiving in that it efficiently transforms the ubiquitous beetle into the ORIGINAL BATMOBILE with relatively little effort.  Yeah, mock it all you want, but then compare it with the genuine item that we’ve provided for your viewing pleasure below:


Okay, the bottom image is a model of the 1940’s version, but you can’t deny the awesome resemblance.  Therefore, the esteemed panel of judges at TR have voted unanimously to declare the VW Batmobile to be honored as a true and bonafide Babe Magnet.

On the other side of the coin is BatMockage, and here is a prime but innocent example. 7 out of 8 mocked him correctly.  The other one is destined to be an online furnace filter consultant.

    Necro– Promise to feature your ’82 Nissan in a future post, K?

    The interesting thing about those Batman pics is that half of the colorers evidently think that Batman’s cape issues from his forearms.


  4. David Says:

    I think the batbug is a hoot.

    Starting with a generic benign vehicle like the bug, that is a fun dress-up concept.

    Diesel– You mean they don’t? Oh I get it. Yer funnin’ me. Next you’re gonna tell me that Spiderman’s webs don’t spring from spinnerets in his armpits.

    David– Benign? Even the lowly bug may be transformed into a vigilante’s weapon to strike at the hearts of his enemies with a vision of pure terror. =)

    “Nurses With Stick Shifts”… Wasn’t that a 45 minute ’60’s Drive-In C movie that preceded “3-D Night of the Vapor Vixens?” =)
