Driving along today with Bumblebee and his two cousins, C1 (7-yo boy) and C2 (6-yo girl), we were discussing superheroes and whether they needed capes or not, i.e., were capes a help or a hindrance.
B: Superman has his own powers, he doesn't need a cape.
&D: Batman, on the other hand, DOES need a cape, because he's just muscles and gadgets.
C2: Spiderman doesn't have a cape, and he hasn't got special powers!
C1 and B: YES HE DOES! He was bitten by a radioactive spider. [joint 'tuh!']
--- pause for thought ---
C1: Well, there's that woman with the great bommiknockers, has she got a cape?
B: well, I'm not sure, but she has special powers, so maybe she doesn't need one...
&D: Which woman? What bommiknockers?
B: WONDER woman.
&D: BOMMIKNOCKERS? That's a pretty weird word for them.
C1: They have great spikes on them, boy, they can do some damage.
C2: Yeah, I want some bommiknockers like that when I'm a woman.
&D: Hang on, SPIKES?
B: Yeah, she swings them around, with one on each end of the rope. Deadly cool.
&D: [blush] Oh, bommiknockers. Cool. [double blush].
