Batman, Turkey

This is quite possibly the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

You can’t make this stuff up. Apparently, the city of….. Batman, Turkey is suing Christoper Nolan and Warner Bros. over the use of the Batman name. They are alleging that the success of The Dark Knight is responsible for a series of unsolved murders and has caused an increase in suicide among women in town. Which all seems like an afterthought since the jerk-off mayor, Huseyin Kalkan, is quoted as saying…

“There is only one Batman in the world, The American producers used the name of our city without informing us.”

A little late for that pal. Like almost 70 years too late you dink. See if our favorite orphan will rid your city of scum now. No, they are not saying there are copycat Joker crimes. Or anything directly related to any Batman plots. Because they for some reason named their town Batman, they think they are now entitled to cash. All this is is a disgusting money grab. Batman, Turkey should be ashamed of itself.

Please someone tell me this is a hoax and restore my faith in humanity.
