Ya Can't Unring a Bell Friday!

Dear Ones,

Before I forget, this is the last post of the week because tomorrow is Independence Day.

Meanwhile, ponder with me why everyone acts like Matt Murdock was some great criminal defense attorney, when he was prone to do stupid things like this:

From Daredevil v.1, #83: This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen, and I have seen (and committed) some of the goofiest trial moments in legal history. Helpful tip: If the State agrees to dismiss charges against your client, shut your hole and get the heck out of there. Do not rub their collective nose in what a dog of a case it was, even if it's going to impress the hot redhead you're representing.


From Daredevil v.1, #84:

No, we dare not pry into Natasha's private thoughts. That would be ungentlemanly. Feel free to watch her undress, though.

From Daredevil v.1, #85:

Guys, there is no worse way to answer your girl's questions about your relationship. "I might as well be your husband" is translated by the female brain as "No one better has come along yet, so what the heck." Women will spin anything you say in the worst possible light, so learn from our soon-to-be-womanless friend Phil.

From Daredevil v.1, #87:

The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Daredevil for taking a figurative dump all over one of their major attractions. Coming up next week: Daredevil explains why the Grand Canyon really isn't worth the trip. Only on the Travel Channel!

Also from Daredevil v.1, #87:

Electro SCREAMS.... in a way that looks an awful lot like a laugh.

And what's with that suit?

Do you think he picked up the wrong outfit at the cleaners? I'm sure super-villains use professional cleaners. Their uniforms always look so clean and pressed, and I just can't envision the Wrecking Crew sitting around the laundromat.

Have a safe holiday! See you Monday!

It certainly takes a lot of chutzpah, to babble about a woman's privacy, while you are watching her get undressed.

Boy, Matt just doesn't know when to shut up, does he? Telling the jurors, they are a bunch of Xenophobes, and then dissing the Golden Gate Bridge! Sheesh!

Has anyone ever been so hard to impress?
"The Golden Gate Bridge;I was expecting something greater."
"The Great Wall of China. Just a fence."
"The Pyramids. Mere building blocks."
"The Black Death. May as well have been a head cold."

Ah, but you see, the Golden Gate bridge isn't in New York! Since most Marvel heroes are from New York, they tend to sneer at great landmarks that aren't in New York. I'll bet DD does get all sentimental and mushy when contemplating the almighty Brooklyn Bridge. :-P

I have a feeling the reason Dare Devil is unimpressed with the bridge is because he is an arrogant jerk. I mean.... what would be impressive to a guy whos BLIND and can do just about anything?

I am curious how Daredavill is supposed to be impressed by the golden gate bridge, maybe it sounds and smells really good. I think he's just pissy about being blind.
