Superman said, “I’ll lick your ice cream and you can lick my ice pop.” Batman replied, “That is so disgusting, as I don’t want your lips and tongue all over my ice cream and I can buy my own ice pop if I want one. You are more like a dog than a superhero, and I am sure that your tongue is full of nasty germs, because you have a bad case of halitosis. What is that lemon, with all the flavors that are out there, why would anyone ever choose lemon?” Superman came back with, “You compared me to a dog and I will take that as a compliment, as there is nothing more loyal than a dog. I heard that a dog’s tongue is cleaner than a human’s is and if I wanted your ice cream, I would just snatch it away from you, and eat it before you ever saw anything. Licking is part of life and the first thing that a mother does with her new born puppies is to lick them, in order to clean them and show them her love and this is the first form of communication that she has with them. I am not surprised that you wear that mask all the time, as I doubt that any girl would ever want to kiss you. If you don’t want to share, that is fine with me, but I never realized how insecure you were before, and if you want to remain friends you need to get over your trust issues.”
