    @celan, that Bill Murray thing was apparently done by a friend's friend.

    Batman wants a word or two about that carol version:

    I am vengeance. I am the night. I’m upset about the Batman version of “Jingle Bells.” You know, the one where children replace the normal chorus with one about me, Batman. I’m Batman.

    Not only are the lyrics insulting, they’re riddled with inaccuracies.

    Here are the traditional bat-lyrics:

    Jingle Bells, Batman smells
    Robin laid an egg
    The Batmobile lost a wheel
    And the Joker got away

    I will note the Hey! is optional. Let’s break this down line by line.

    Jingle Bells.

    That’s fine.

    Batman smells.

    You would think I’d have a problem with that line.


    Of course, I smell. I spend hours fighting, sweating, and bleeding in tight constrictive body armor. I am rank. I am like a thousand filthy locker rooms filled with a thousand wet dogs.

    I am your worst olfactory nightmare. And I like it that way.

    My goal is to strike terror in the hearts of criminals. I can’t really do that if I smell nice. I don’t want to pop out of the shadows, grab some punk, and then have them say, “Well, he looks scary but he smells like lavender.”

    That’s just stupid.

    I don’t want Catwoman to be able to track me through the city because she can pick up a faint odor of cinnamon and nutmeg.

    I’m not a fancy coffee drink. I’m Batman. Let’s move on.

    @Cat - someone actually sings a version of that song in the recent 'Batman: Arkham Origins' game, which is set at Christmas.

    @cat @Flabyo

    I remember when the Joker sang it in the animated series and it blew my mind (I was 12) :-)

    @TF @Flabyo - I treasure that episode, especially for Bruces' bit about never having seen It's A Wonderful Life because he couldn't get past the title.

    That Santa comic is by Anthony "Nedroid" Clark via his tumblr.

    It was made for Cards agains Humanity's Funny Pages zine, on the 8th day of their "12 days of holidays bullshit".

    Probably old, but I've only just stumbled over it...

    That page has a link to Hasselhoff's hits, which made me think of this monstrosity:

    He was voted off the 1st week, by the way.
