Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

"Guano-Sweeper" would be a good name for an advice columnist...

Is it weird that I would kind of like to see Ma Hunkel and Alfred go on a date? I mean, admittedly, she's probably a bit old for him (though I think she's got the same Karkull-shadow-handwave excuse for not being as old as she ought to be.) But I think it'd be cute.

It's kind of how when I watched the sixties version of Batman, I always thought Aunt Harriet and Alfred were a cute couple.

Only Ma Hunkel is cooler and wields a mean frying pan.

Besides they could exchange horror stories about housekeeping for superheroes. Or maybe run an anonymous advice column in Better Homes and Gardens. If anyone can tell you how to get cream soda stains off of your top secret supercomputer, it's them.

    You make it a crossover where you have a cross-universal double date of Alfred/Ma Hunkel with Jarvis and Aunt May.

    I'd be there.

    The cover for the story could be Alfred standing side on to the "camera", imitating the old James Bond/Steed pose but with his fingers steepled like a mime gun instead of an actual gun, Ma Hunkel standing next to him with her arms crossed, frying pan at the ready and a speech bubble:

    "Oh, don't be silly."

    It would be adorable. He'd be trying to serve her tea, and she'd be giving him cookies.

    Aw, Jarvis and Aunt May. Truly the unspoken casualties of the whole One More Day silliness.
