The Velocity Kid, the Hoop-A-Jet, and Skittle Bowl Friday!
The Velocity Kid had to be the least popular super-hero in the history of the world. The guy's power comes from that siren on his chest that, near as I can tell, doesn't turn off. I mean, I'm sure Banshee wasn't exactly first picked to play kickball among the X-Men because of that shrieking thing, but at least he'd stop to take a breath every now and then.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEstop what you're doing, evildoers!EEEEEEEEEEEcan I be of assistanceEEEEEEEEEEEEdoes anyone want to split a pizzaEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEwhy won't anyone talk to meEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...........
This has got to be the least stable form of transportation since the Black Racer slapped on those ridiculous skis. Does anyone care to hazard a guess as to what happens at the first strong cross-wind? Thump! Right on its side! With those jets still going and the Hoopster frantically trying to pull it back upright while laughing criminals are giving him the finger. Get a horse!
Hey, hey! It's Skittle Bowl! I remember seeing a couple of these in my day. I can't imagine there not being all kinds of Skittle Bowl related injuries. There's not a kid alive who wouldn't think it funny to whip that ball around the post at breakneck speed, administering many a lump on the noggins of his opponents. Don't act like you don't see it.
