Yeah, when you first see the picture you’re probably all “What The F?!”, which is probably followed by a lot of laughter.Â The Christian hardcore don’t find it funny at all, and think Marvel is promoting a gay agenda.

Way back in the closing days of the 20th century, Matthew and I attended college together. It was a grand old time, full of happiness, carefree days, and really bad jokes.

Otter would be the one with the Weird Al doo, with Matthew appearing as the sorry receiver of the joke.via Otter Disaster
