Climbing a building dressed as Spiderman is not normal. But on meth it is.

"Window washers?"
So not only do you get hospitalised, you have to put up with being stuck in the Clone Saga.
Fan-farking-tastic.

All of them shouldn't be Spiderman, especially if they're on the same side of the building. And at least one should be Aquaman.

How do we know they're not really Doc Ocks in Spider-Men bodies?

FTL Robert Powers is the guy's name.  That man deserves a drink or two.

Well done sir.

Hero tag could have maybe replaced the Florida tag just this once.

What a great surprise for the kids. Unless of course they're pretty small and don't know who spider-man is. Then it's just a GIANT SPIDER OUTSIDE THEIR WINDOW TRYING TO MELT THEM WITH ITS VENOM.
 
2013-01-13 09:52:21 AM
It's "Spider-Man". Hyphen necessary. See discussion on Friends between difference between "Goldman" (actual name), and "Gold-Man" (superhero).
 
2013-01-13 09:53:25 AM
Pretty damn cool.

"Daddy, why is Spider-man reduced to a minimum wage job?"

When my daughter was in All Children's in St. Pete for an illness, it was Christmas. The staff dressed up as santa and visited every child on the floor, giving them a present. It warmed her heart and ours too.

It's common to see people dressed up as superheroes walking the halls of this place on weekends. But to have them washing the external windows, that takes an extraordinarily large heart.

"It pays more than he makes as a photographer"

Since when did Spider-Man become a billionaire industrialist?

Story with video and pictures, as it should be.

When I'm mayor of NYC, all window washers will be required by executive decree to dress up as super heroes.

Shiat, I'll even let them have 17 oz sodas if they want.

Guess Spidey's had to find a new job since the internet caused the Daily Bugle to tank.

How does Superman change now that telephone booths are so rare?

I'm afraid of spiders.

"J. Jonah Jameson fired him again sweetie. He'll probably get the photographer job back next issue."

Would he take them clubbing, bend them over and yell "FATALITY"?

Hero tag trumps floriduh tag this time

The event offered kids a chance to experience something they aren't likely to encounter again.

Nice.

Sick child: Why is Spiderman washing my windows?

Mommy (thinks quick): It's part of his community service work, dear.

Sick child: That sounds like bullshiat. Why does he have to do community service?

Um, J. Jonah Jameson had him arrested for vandalism because of some cars and walls that got damaged when he was fighting bad guys, so he washes windows at the Children's Hospital. I hear Superman is making diamonds to pay for the damages that happen every time he flies through walls to save little old ladies from burglars. And Aquaman is cleaning garbage out of the Hudson River.

It's tough work being a Super-Hero, but somebody's got to do it. The Hulk reads to children down at the public library as part of his anger management course. I bet they don't interupt him.

At least window-washing is a real job, unlike "freelance photographer."  I never figured out how Parker lived on JJJ's stingy payments. I don't recall Parker having any other customers.

They also do this at the Children's Hospital here in Pittsburgh

And why doesn't he just buy his clothes from the same place that the Chippendale dancers get theirs? (Think about it for a second. It'll come to you.)

Ever tried sellphone photos freelance? Sure, some days will pay pretty good, but most of the time, you'll be scraping the bottom of the barrel to get enough change for a loaf of bread.

/then when you get paid it's not "Buy enough food to last!" it's "Buy that new lens for the next good shot!" and we're back to scraping the barrel
//I really didn't try this for very long.

Don't know what the hell happened on that third word.

Should have been... "Ever tried selling photos..."
