If the Man of Steel isn't encased in Kryptonite* and our cub reporter wasn't Jimmy Olson in disguise then there's way too much fine print to wade through.

There is only one actor who could pull off the role of Dick Swallow,
Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Can't you just imagine what he would sound like saying Dick's catch Phrase, "I'LL Blow You Away!" :lol: :coolsmile:

"I am Dick Swallow, you squinty-eyed sailor!"

"Yeah? Yarkakakaka, well blow me down!"

Dick Swallow! In Boys Life. The official publication of the, until recently, rabidly homophobic Boy Scouts of America.
Methinks thou dost protest too much.

My brother-in-law is called Dick.

This is not funny in Dutch, not even when you take my own name into consideration.
