Homoerotica Wednesday

OK, so I said I'd be back Monday and it's now Wednesday.

You can blame my new 14-day free trial of City of Heroes for that.

Let's call this week's installment: "I Can't Believe They Wrote That."

You know, those unintentional slips of script that make you wonder how in the holy hell they got it past the Comic Book Code.

Not that "rearguard archery service" isn't necessarily incompatible with Hemingway Wednesday, though...

I can't even say "Speedy lets fly a series of startling shafts" out loud without needing a cool drink!
