adam_west_phonebook

If you look up Adam West in the phone book in the town in Iowa where he lives, as someone on Reddit did, you will be redirected to Wayne, Bruce (Millionaire), obviously. And when you look up Wayne, Bruce (Millionaire) you will be redirected to the Yellow Pages under Crime Fighters. When you go to Crime Fighters, there is just one entry: Batman (see: West, Adam). HEY, THAT IS PRETTY FUN! We should all be so lucky as to have the kind of career that is so noteworthy that we can reduce the whole thing to a fun and funny half-joke in an antiquated registry system that has itself become a bit of a joke in a small town where virtually no one will see it except some troll who will then post it on the Internet for 8 hours of glory. We should all be so lucky. It is called living tha dream. A. Samuels knows what I’m talking about. Also I know that I am wobbling over the line into Sarcasm Territory so let me firmly redirect our Emotions Car us back to the proper lane: I do think this is genuinely fun and that it is fun to have fun with things. Full stop. Good job, Adam West! (Click through to enlarge.)

  1. That’s nice and all, but it’s sure going to suck for the Batt family that just had their phone number hand-delivered to every troll on the internet.

  2. I call bullshit on Adam West living in Iowa.

    • Wikpedia calls bullshit on your call of bullshit.

      • You didn’t even check it and screw you for making me look. No mention of Iowa.

        • True. He lives in Idaho. Eh, it’s all the same, right?

          Fun fact also from Wikipedia, with absolutely no sentence before this that would allow it to begin the way it does:

          “Later, while living in Hawaii, West picked a role as the sidekick on a children’s show called El Kini Popo Show, which featured a chimp. West later took over as star of the show.”

          That sentence is the most perfect sentence.

  3. When I lived in Iowa and registered for a landline, the nice people in charge let me go through all possible 4-digit combinations until I found one I liked. I had about 30-50 written down in preparation for that rad moment.

  4. I bet “Gay Weake” gets a lot of prank phone calls.

  5. I want to take a break from the usual horsing around here to applaud and/or commend the author of this blog post for the headline’s reference to the “where does he get such wonderful toys” line from the 1989 Tim Burton Bat-Man movie. Rad reference.
