Batman The Moron

Bat Cloud 
Agent 54 here again.  You may have heard about the cyber-attacks the NSA has endured recently.  Well, with no new info coming in I decided to tell you my plans for making a block-buster movie.  It’s kinda a Halloweenish thing with people wearing costumes and such.  Read this and tell me what you think of Batman The Moron.

Scene:  A hot summer day in a crowded inner city.  At a city bus stop four people sit on the bench.  Two of them are men in questionable shape wearing poorly fitted costumes with capes and masks.  One is constantly texting on his Bat-cell phone.  A large woman with two bags of groceries and a heavy purse stands at the end of the bench and gives the men on the bench dirty looks as they argue.

Batman: (played by Gilbert Gottfried)  That is definitely the last time I ever let you drive the Batmobile.  What the heck was I thinking?  Letting you, Robin, drive the Batmobile.  Oy Vey!

Robin: (played by Bobcat Goldthwait)  It wasn’t my fault!  That barfwagon ran the stop sign.

Batman:  Yeah, that lunch truck runs that stop sign every single day and you would know that by now if you weren’t always playing video games and texting when I’m driving.

Robin:  Blah, blah, blah

Batman:  Alfred said it’s gonna take two whole weeks to fix the Batmobile so, I hope you like taking mass transit when we pursue the Joker and the Penguin.

Robin:  It’s not so bad.  You’re such a grumpy grouch.  You should look on the bright side.

Gilbert Gottfried 
Batman:  What bright side?

Robin: (10 second pause)  Well, I dunno, the bright side!

Batman:  You’re an idiot.  My partner is an idiot. (mumbling to himself now) I’ve got an idiot for a partner.  How did this happen?  Why me?

The bus pulls up and the Dynamic Duo get in line to board with the other sweaty passengers.  As they step into the bus, Batman reaches into his Bat-coin purse (made from very nice green paisley pattered nylon-cotton blend fabric) located on his Bat-utility belt and pulls out 4 bus tokens.

Scene:  The Batmancave looks a lot like a two bedroom apartment occupied couple of college kids.  Several pizza delivery boxes are scattered around along with many empty containers of Red Bull and Dr. Pepper.  Half eaten Slim Jims and bags of chips and pretzels can easily be found almost anywhere.   In one corner of the living room Batman is working on his Bat-desktop computer.  In the middle of the room Robin is sitting on the floor, leaning against the couch with his legs under the coffee table, playing his Bat-Xbox.

Batman:  I don’t suppose I could ask you to clean The Batmancave up a little while I figure out how we’re going to pay for the repairs on the Batmobile?

Robin:  (without moving a muscle)  Yeah, sure, in a minute.

The Bat-phone rings.  Robin doesn’t even flinch.

Batman:  I’ll get it!  It might be Commissioner Gordon.

Batman rushes to the kitchen where the Bat-phone is located.  He steps on a Bat-pizza box and slides and nearly falls but, does manage to answer the phone.

Hello, Bruce Whine here.   Oh, high.  Yes I did.  I did!.  It’s in the mail. It is!  Click.

Bobcat Goldthwait
Robin:  (without moving a muscle)  Was that the Bat-Ex-wife again?

Batman:  None of your business!

Batman returns to the Bat-desktop computer.

Batman:  I’m gonna have to take that job Mr. Smith offered me at the Home Depot so we can pay these bills.   Did you hear about that job at Food City yet?

Robin:  (focused like a 20th degree ninja on his Bat-Xbox game)  Nope.

Batman picks up an envelope from the Bat-computer desk and tosses it at Robin hitting him in the head.  Robin never moves and the envelope bounces off his head onto the stained and worn out couch.

Batman:  (singing kinda) Mail call for Dick Greasegun.

Robin:   Mail, for me?

With the quickness of a mongoose, Robin drops the Bat-Xbox control and jumps up onto the couch.  Exhibiting the dexterity of a spider monkey, Robin opens the envelope. 

Holy Guacamole
Robin:  (very excited)  Holy Guacamole!  It’s a check!  It’s a settlement check for $25,000 from when I hurt my neck in that fight last year with the Joker and his men.  $25,000  we’re rich!

Batman:  Lemme see that.  It is a check.  Now we can get the car fixed, we can get costumes that fit.  We can pay the back child support we owe.

Robin:   Hey, what’s this we stuff.  It’s my check.

Batman:  Oh no you don’t.  We’re partners 55-50.

Robin:  Oh yeah, well if we’re partners, then I want the Bat, the Robinmobile tricked out a little bit more.

Batman:  Whadda ya mean?

Robin:  I want that thing to bounce like them low-riders we seen downtown and I want a little dog in the back with a head that goes up and down like this and ….

Bat Robinmobile
  Agent 54 here again.  That’s all I want to show you right now until after I get an offer for the rights to the screenplay.  This could be the one.  The big break I need to take my rightful place alongside the greats like Spielberg, Lucas, DeMille and Mel Brooks.  What do you think?


  1. We’re partners 55-50. Bwahahahahahahaha.

    I linked you to Silly Sunday. It's really good to see a post from you. I've missed you.

    Have a fabulous Silly Sunday. ☺

  2. Thank you. I've decided to give up trying to earn money from my writings and to just write for mine and yours,,,our own amusement. My little comedy gifts to the world.

  3. LOl that was enjoyable and LOL @ Bat-desktop computer.

    Have a battastic week :-)

  4. Thanks, I'm gonna enjoy some Batfootball (or is it Bad Football) today.

  5. Very good, how are you doing, I have been working since March 3, doing very well, I like the place where, a lot better than the place we worked at, take care

  6. Nice to hear from you. I'll call you later. Thanks

  7. LOL, great tale..55-50! followed from Silly Sunday

  8. Good to see you back writing here. Seems like it's been a while.

    Funny thing is read this in Gilbert's and Bobcat's voices.

    1. Thanks for reading. I may have more time to write now, since I don't have a job.

  9. I can't get the image of Gilbert Gottfried in the Batman costume out of my head. Yikes.

    1. I think the casting department did a fine job on this project.

      What do you think? Janeane Garofalo for Cat Woman?

  10. hahaha, partners 55-50! Sounds like some I know! #FridayFrolics

    1. Happy to make you laugh.

      Thanks for playing.

  11. Gilbert Gottfried & Bobcat Goldthwaite together? Yikes. That almost sounds like an 80's movie that you would see on cable late at night. Try pitching this script to Judd Apatow & make the dynamic duo Seth Rogen & James Franco. You might just have yourself a deal.

    1. I actually did try to contact Judd and Seth about this. I also sent a copy do Disney because they own Batman. I'm still waiting for a reply.

      Thanks for playing again and Happy New Year!

  12. I am dissapointed that Batman's cave makes him sound like he needs to sort his housekeeping out. Also sounds a lot like my kid's bedroom #FridayFrolics

    1. Yes, he could use a maid or a butler if he could afford one.

      Thanks for playing.

  13. Entertaining as always! Thanks for sharing at The Blogger's Pit Stop! Roseann from
