I'm Batman?


A distraught father staged a protest from church scaffolding in a desperate attempt to gain contact with his children.

Colin Vallis, 41, from Scarisbrick Street, Ormskirk, spent 10 hours of Father's Day dressed as Batman on scaffolding surrounding Holy Trinity Church in Southport.

The unemployed builder, who is out of work following an accident, has no idea where his son Arel, three, and daughter Sophie, one, are after his ex-partner took them away.

Mr Vallis said: "I was so distraught that I couldn't see my kids. They are very close to me and were just taken away from me. It's totally unjust. Fathers have no rights whatsoever. I feel like I have been kicked to the gutter."

--With these 2 nutjobs as parents, I think these kids would be better off in foster care!

There's a whole thought process that went into this stunt that is INFINITELY funnier than the act itself.

Think about it. At some point he decided, "I've got to do something!"

And then the lightbulb went on that he'd put up a sign...BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! "I'm going to scale a scaffolding to get MORE attention! Ha HA!"

And, at some point, while ol' Colin was staring at himself in the mirror, he realized that his plan JUST WAS NOT ENOUGH.

And that morning, as he pulled on his tights and looked in the mirror one last time before springing to action, he said, "perfect. THIS is EXACTLY what I was going for!"

That alone makes me laugh harder than the picture here.
