When Bad Things Happen to Good (Little) People

Joey got a really cool Batman birthday present from his Aunt Mary a few weeks ago:


All three boys have been playing with it daily.

Yet when I looked around for some of my missing vintage Fisher Price Little People, I was stumped.

Then I looked closer:


Forget the Bastille.  Apparently the new prison du jour is the Bat-Cave. 

And where the heck is Jean Valjean when you need him?

  2. Read yesterday that Russell Crowe separated from his wife while he's filming Les Miz the movie. Do you think I'll finally get my shot? Get those boys some GI Joes!

    1. GI Joes have arms! Armless people are much more fun. And they can't "escape."

    1. I think they were innocent victims. Criminal activities are pretty limited when you don't have arms or legs, right?

      Go Batman!

  6. And, yet, they're still smiling. Maybe they're serving them drinks in prison?

    1. It's important to keep the prisoners happy. Lowers the chance of escape. Note: the gate is wide open and nobody's leaving.

  8. I think it's time for a march down Western Ave and demand freedom for all the Little People. We coud have it in March of every year and people from all around the area could come and....oh wait..
