Stupid Thing of the Week

So, I went to my pal Merrill's house the other day, and was impressed to see his ten year old running around in a Punisher t-shirt. It was a pastiche of the big Punisher symbol, comprised of little symbols. I complimented the man on it, since I really enjoyed the Punisher as a youth, though I was surprised when he mentioned that his wife had gotten it for the child.

That surprised me, considering her conservative nature, and Merrill told me he took her aside and explained who Punisher was. "Violent superhero?" she said, surprised, "I just thought it was a big skull made up of hundreds of little skulls."

I didn't know if that made her a really, really cool mom . . . or just weird.
