1099. Syphilitic Batman

My favorite podcast is The Dollop. It’s a biweekly podcast where once a week comedian Dave Anthony reads a story from American History to his friend Gary who doesn’t know what the topic is about. On occasion, they travel to Australia and tell a story from Australian History. The most recent episode was about Batman. Sorta.

Apparently the man who basically settled the city of Melbourne at the expense of the lives of numerous Aboriginals was named John Batman. He had syphilis. He is referred to as Syphilitic Batman throughout the podcast. It had to be drawn.

Unfortunately it also had to be referenced.

Some things you can’t unsee.

I’m still here.
