Review of a trip to the theater

Not the good old days of theater

When I got to this state- Califonria that is- Every single neighbor of mine (the English speaking ones. I mean, come on) told me I needed to check out the local plays. Now, I'm a pretty smart guy. Anyway, I went to the theater for a local production of my all time favorite play: "The Batman in GOTHAM City".

For those who are ununfamiliar I will provide a breif summary of the play- Local man and business man by the name of Bruce Wang is bitten by a Radio-Active bat to become none other than- TheBatman! TheBatman then fights crime in gotham city- a sleepy American town- the classic Anytown, U.S.A..
TheBatman has many rivals: There is TheJokér (based on the playing card HAHAHA LOL). There is also CatWoman- best friends and wife of TheJokér. (She is also easy on the eyes, I must add Haha). OfCourse their are other rivals, but who has the time for that.  On to the play!

This was the WORST production of the play "The Batman In gotham City" I have ever seen in my life. The actors seemed uninformed, the set didnt match the play, the dialoge made no sense, and TheBatman never once put his classic cape on. They only refered to TheBatman as "Sween E. Todd", not Bruce Wang, as is correct. In the original, Bruce Wang is a big business man, but here he was portrayed as but a lowly barber. Also, this version took place in the GB (united kingdom, governah (LOL)), not the USA. It was now a singysongy type show with not enough Wang-in-your-face style action that us guys (bros) are looking for in such a play. I want a play to leave me un-able to walk the next morning (if you catch my drift)

I am a guy, Im looking for the classic B.E.C.B.- Babes, Explosions, Cars, and more Babes. Hey, I can't help it Im a guy!!! (girls dont understand). Anyway, this JOKE of a play had none of it. I struggle currently to think of a worse time Ive ever had at going to the theater. This was rock bottom.

Its tough to judge whether Iwill ever go back. On one handed, I do love the plays- its one art thats not just a bunch of men in beards and tight pants (Hahaha, but it is true). But I have been turned off from all things stage because of this utter BOONDOGGLE.

I will leave it at that.

Favorite and least names (Xander)

Folk's-  when I was growing up life was pretty dang simple: everybody got along, we ate turkey on thanksgiving, and all dressed up on halloween. The fact is, we were all just you're Average American Joes. Including the fact that there weren't that many names- John, Joe, Sam, Tom, just classic names. However, living in "California" I ended up realizing that there are more names then ever, using all different kinds of letters and numbers (hahaha  I know).

Just yesterday I went to the grocery store (a "marcado" if you will ) and when I went up to the deli, you will never believe who stepped up to serve me (no, not Jeanette LOL) it was none other than a man of medium-build named "Xander". Now I nearly dropped my large basket of power bars and other fitness foods (no, really) when I saw this pathetic excuse for a name!!!!!! I thought it sounded like a name straight out of "StarTrek". He explained to me that it was actually pranounced like "Zander" not "Ksander" but I wasn't buying it! I said to the man "Ksander, do your parents know that you go by such a quite frankly ridiculus name??? "
He simply had no response (so the story goes).

But all that a side, here is the list of the top and bottom names (in my "opinion"):

Ronald- Name (no pun inintended) just one person named with the name Ronald that has turned out to be bad. Try it! I guarantee you the task is simply impossible! Next!

Jeff- One of the best and (in this writer's opinion) first presidents was Thomas Jeffereson. Ever since he was president   I have a fond fascination of the name Jeff. Heck if I ever got a couple of kids of my own someday, I might just name em Jeff.

Jesus- Please. I find it offensive, no, dumb, that you think Jesus (and none of that Hey-zoose business, we're talking full on Jee-zus ) wouldn't be on my top name's list. If I re-call correctly, God had a son or something? and what was his name? Ah yes, I remember: J.E.S.U.S.

Geoff- I cant remember exactly whom it was that said it but I believe the quote goes something like "Geoff is how everybody evil, especially Nazi's (P.U.) spells the better name Jeff". Simply put: Geoff is to Jeff as Satan is to Santa.

OJ- (no pulp please hahahahaha somebody stop me!) but seriously I have never IN MY LIFE liked the name OJ since the mid 90's. And I know what your thinking: wasnt there a famous person of sorts named "OJ"?? And yes this is true, but I a sure you that has nothing to do with my dislike for the name. Lets just move on shall we?

Hugh- Need I say more? This alleged "name" breaks nearly EVERY law of decent order and politeness on the books. First of all the spelling- this name is more misspelled than an athiest TRYING to spell "Lord". How the devil ever arrived at the supposedly correct "Hyu pronunciation" is beyond me.... Like what did the maker of the name "Hugh" work at the g factory and need to sell some more g's into words??? (hahaha just a joke LOL). Its safe to say that the day Hugh Hughington is elected predisent is the day I move out, of the country!!!
