    I know Stephen will be disappointed if SOMEONE doesn’t say it, so I will: “No nose? She must smell really bad!” I ordered this book from Amazon – through your link by the way – but it didn’t get here in time to send any comments before the show. Dang!

    In your discussion of how much money the Fantastic 4 movies brought in, Stephen forgot to mention how much the really GOOD Fantastic 4 movie earned – the one Disney and Pixar made called “The Incredibles”.
