*Last year, we saw Superman face off against Batman on the big screen, and Wonder Woman’s up this summer, but soon you’ll get to see a battle between the Man of Steel and the Ku Klux Klan at your neighborhood multiplex!
*Pescatarians are a proud bunch. They love to espouse the benefits of eschewing red meat, pork, and even poultry, with their judgement-filled gazes, and talk about how much better they feel and how much weight they lost eating fish.
