This is a question The most childish thing you've done as an adult

Davros' Grandad confesses: On visiting my ex-wife's house, I wiped my bum on the toothbrush belonging to the bloke she ran off with. At least, I thought it was his toothbrush.

My mate Reg loves Batman. Really does. And was incensed one day when he found his wife's new bloke drinking tea from his Batman mug. Reg and his missus had been split for a while; he moved out with a bag of clothes and she stayed in the house with everything from the marriage. Fair enough; he'd been the instigator of the break up and his kids still needed a home.

But on dropping his children off one day he was tipped over the edge by the sight of another man drinking from his Batman mug and promptly threw a foot stomping hissy-fit, snatched the still full mug from his replacement and stormed to the kitchen, yelling at the rapidly cowering bloke sat in what used to be his armchair.

"You can have my wife. You can sit in my armchair, watch my telly, listen to music on MY stereo. You can live in my house, play Dad to my kids, cook food in my kitchen. You can do anything you want. But you are NOT having my fucking Batman mug." And in in a self-satisifed fit of childish pique, made a great show of tipping the tea down the kitchen sink.

"Was there really any need for that?" his ex asked him.

"It's MY Batman mug. He's NOT having it. I'm going to put this in the car." And on saying that, Reg turned on his heel, walked towards the door, tripped on the threshold and watched helplessly as the mug flew from his hand to land in several pieces on the concrete outside...

I can fully sympathize with him on that one. I really can. Sometimes it's the little things that can send you over the edge.

Batman related: my daughter has a Batman Pez dispenser. She offered me a Pez out of it and I declined. "I don't know how I feel about ripping off his head and eating something out of his neck."

(Years ago one of her favorite threats was "I'll rip off your head, spit down your neck and use your skull for a coffee mug.")

She looked at the Pez for a moment and asked, "Are you going to use his head for a coffee mug?"

I reached into the cabinet and pulled out a large black mug with a yellow symbol on it. "No, not his skull- just his logo."

She stared at it for a second, then said, "You know, we're the biggest geeks I know of."

Oh god, Reg, no.
After a speech like that, too.

It's BATMAN we're talking about here
I'm with him on this.

Me too.
Especially with Arkham Asylum, the Batman obsession has just cause to be a little more than healthy at the moment.
