It would be sweet if Calgary had a real-life superhero running the city...Oh wait, they do!
Ok, ok. Not really. The above picture was tweeted out Friday afternoon by Nenshi after a string of Twitter conversation with Calgarians discussing the hypothetical situation if he were the mayor of Gotham City.
It started with tweeter @dombougie asking the mayor:
— dom bougie (@dombougie) August 24, 2012
@nenshi If you were mayor of Gotham city would you arrest batman, or support his vigilante crime fighting?
To which Nenshi responded with a vague non-answer.
But Twitter wasn't going to let him off the hook. @TheFalconer's response:
@nenshi @dombougie the correct answer is "If I were mayor of Gotham, we wouldn't NEED Batman."— Don F (@TheFalconer) August 24, 2012
But the true superhero of the conversation is @kailicashin, who pulled out this humdinger:
@nenshi @thefalconer @dombougie Or what about: "If I were mayor of Gotham, we wouldn't NAHEED Batman"?— Kaili Cashin (@kailicashin) August 24, 2012
Oh, and of course this from @andrew_c_morton:
@nenshi: I now have "na na na na na na na na NENSHI" going through my head— Andrew Morton (@andrew_c_morton) August 24, 2012
Well done, Andrew. You can be Robin.
