Keith Olbermann just mentioned Barack Obama’s Spider-Man collection.

My mother: “Who’s Spider-Man? He’s not Batman, is he?”

Me: “…”

My mother: “Batman’s the mentally sick one.”

Me: “Spider-Man’s more downtrodden. It’s hard for him to be a good nephew and husband when he’s fighting supervillains.”

My mother: “He’s Silver Age, isn’t he?”

Me: “Wow. How do you know about Silver Age?”

My mother: “That’s a bit condescending.”
