I’m sure this video is just meant for fun, and we should assign no real gender politics to it, but still, seeing Wonder Woman make a sandwich in a kitchen is hard to process in its horrible, horrible misogynist ramifications. All I know is this:
? There’s no way that accent is real. She makes Sofia Vergara sound like Judi Dench. ? I don’t expect this to be The Mary Sue‘s new favorite YouTube video. ? Is it better or worse that Wonder Woman is making the world’s simplest sandwich? “Step 1: Put ingredients on bread. Step 2: Uh, eat it.” ? Meanwhile, DC Editorial doesn’t see a problem with this video, except Wonder Woman should have offered to have had emotionless sex with the sandwich afterwards. ? Chances of Superman and Batman watching football in the next room: 100% ? That sandwich is fucking terrible. Come on, Wonder Woman — if you’re going to throw your entire gender under the bus, at least do it with a sandwich that doesn’t involve bologna or American cheese.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
