OctopusLand: Free Your Hulk
This afternoon at lunch I couldn't remember the name of Mayor McCheese. I got him mixed up with Officer Big Mac.
The license plate on the Jeep Cherokee in front of me on Colorado at 10:20 tonight said "MO MAGIC". The local kids had tagged up the new Diet Coke Plus billboard above Swork on Colorado and Eagle Rock.
The 81 came rolling down the wet street, its LED headsign flashing "Eagle Rock" at me, reminding me where I was.
terrifying, faded memories
In the comic book, the scientist who became the Incredible Hulk was named Bruce Banner. This name was changed in the 1970's television show to David Banner. The rumor is that the show's creators thought "Bruce" was insufficiently masculine.
We all have a Hulk inside. The question is what we do with him.
