I was just looking through some Halloween pictures I had recently taken, and what’s the deal with Batman piÃ±atas?
Like someone’s out shopping for piÃ±atas at Whatever The Party Store Is Called, casually browsing all the latest piÃ±ata offerings in the piÃ±ata aisle. They pass up maybe an Iron Man, which is the first mistake because everyone knows he’s like the Cadbury Egg of superheroes. Then they pass up maybe Spongebob, who many of the parents would gladly take a swing at themselves.
Somehow they find themselves pausing in front of the Batman, and nod slowly – “Yesssss…. this papier-mÃ¢chÃ© effigy of a widely reveredÂ childhood superheroÂ will be the perfect effigy for a bunch of sugared up gradeschool kids to take turns beating the shit out of until it bleeds candy.”
