Weekend Open Thread: Become Robocop, Shake Some Tail and Drone in on Disney


There won’t be a Weekend Hangover post on Monday, as Monday morning’s list will be Liz Ohanesian’s report from Power Morphicon. So let me try to throw as many items as I can out there now:


-Rob Liefeld just looks like he’s blatantly feeding the trolls with that variant cover above.

-Disney may start using drones in its theme parks. What happened to letting your conscience be your guide?

-The motorcycle helmet that turns you into Robocop.

-Instead of ice buckets, why not buy a Kari Byron autographed R2-D2 dress for ALS?

-I’m always surprised when more straightforward movie sites try to get even weirder than we do.

-New My Little Pony: Equestria Girls music video dances around the possible innuendo of “Shake Your Tail.”

-Pokemaster – one guy managed to actually catch ’em all.

-WWE’s Leprechaun movie looks more like Mini-Predator.

-Roddy Piper’s all out of bubblegum, again.

-Even though Disney owns Marvel, Marvel’s being kinda dickish about Big Hero 6. like with Fantastic Four.

-Finally, here’s my wife doing stand-up. Constructive suggestions are always appreciated, though they will probably get lost in this thread quite quickly. No jokes about her dumb-ass husband…yet.
