The Obvious Absence of Phone Booths

No wonder there’s a serious lack of super
-latives. What, Superman’s gonna get
nakey right out in the middle of the street?

Spidey finally came to his senses; the
whole wide world’s on the web.

Riddle me this: how on earth did the rest
of the universe suddenly catch up with Batman
in the technology department?

And what do you get when you require
your heroine to squeeze into 3-inch heels
and a tube sock?

……………………………..No Wonder.

  4. 🙂 Indeed. I doubt my little one will even know what a phone booth – or a pay phone at all. It’s all so cheap now… and yet communication has not improved one bit. And certainly is must be putting a damper on our super heroes! 🙂
