Hi there! Welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, a Boy Wonder blog in a Dark Knight internet. I'm Dave-El.

Yes, today's post is an ENCORE POST. Yes, I know I've relied on the crutch of re-runs more than a few times this month. But I'm still working on getting my groove back when it comes to blogging, both my mental (creative) groove as well as my physical groove (my left hand is starting to become slightly more helpful when typing). 

Today's encore originally posted here on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 and it's called....

BATMAN GOES TO A RESTAURANT! the Batman. A grim avenger of the night, he dwells in the shadows of Gotham City to strike at the vicious and cowardly criminals who threaten the safety and well-being of Gotham's law abiding citizens.

Sometimes, the Batman has allies in his war against crime. But more often than not...

Batman watches over Gotham...alone.

Batman stands alone.

Batman fights alone.

And sometimes...


Batman must dine...alone.

And now, I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You presents the tale of what happens when the Caped Crusader decides he wants a pork chop from Gotham City's finest dining establishment.
