The Dark Knight Does Bras

No bat in hereIf you’re anything like me, you’re looking forward to the release of The Dark Knight.  You know, the latest Batman movie. Ok, it’s not about a real bat man, but at least it’s a reference to an animal.  It certainly beats the puff pieces Spiderman, he wasn’t a real spider or man either, and the soon to be developed Cicadaman.  If you haven’t heard, Cicadaman is a super hero who only comes out in summers and has the ability to make really loud annoying noises at night. I think his character was inspired by my old man.

But, as usual, I digress. This story is about a bat and a woman and a bra. No we’re not talking about a domestic violence case here, but just another zany story from the folks that brought you the British Empire.

NORWICH, England, July 8 (UPI) — A 19-year-old woman working at an English hotel said she discovered a baby bat in her bra after five hours of wearing the undergarment.

Hotel receptionist Abbie Hawkins, 19, said she initially thought her cell phone was going off when she felt vibrations in her clothes while working at the Holiday Inn Norwich North, but when she reached around for the source of the shaking, she found a tiny bat hiding in the padded pocket of her bra, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.

When I feel like a cell phone is ringing in my fur suit, it usually turns out to be hookworms. On the brighter side, they’re easier to pass than a bat.

“Once I realized it was a bat I was shocked, but then I felt quite sorry for it really,” Hawkins said. “It looked very snug in there and I thought how mean I was for disturbing it.”

“I keep thinking how could I have not known it was there?” Hawkins said.

The entire world is thinking the same thing.
