Rehearse this line, future slaves: "Merry Darkseid. I got you a Darkseid."

Previously, we saw Darkseid rant to the empty air. Now the nightmarish lord of evil -- reduced to selling old Kiss cassette tapes to support his drinking habit, and living in a dumpster behind the Baby Gap -- rants to Twitter as HOBODARKSEID. Along the way, he shares his views on the ending of "Moonlighting," sings Dio's "Holy Diver," and confesses a love for "Mad Men." He also intends to destroy us all. Shudder/enjoy.

What's fucked up is now I'm reading The Art of Dramatic Writing, and it all suddenly feels like it was written by Darkseid:

Some go so far as to claim there can be no rules [for writing] whatsoever. This is the strangest view of all. We know there are rules for eating, walking, and breathing; we know there are rules for painting, music, dancing, flying, and bridge building; we know there are rules for every manifestation of life and nature -- why, then, should writing be the sole exception? Obviously IT IS NOT. THERE IS ONE RULE AND THAT RULE IS DARKSEID. SOME WRITERS HAVE TOLD US THAT A PLAY IS MADE UP OF DIFFERENT PARTS: THEME, PLOT, OTHER STUFF, WHATEVER. THESE WRITERS ARE MISTAKEN. WRITING IS MADE UP OF ONE PART: DARKSEID. PLUS A SIDE OF DARKSEID. NOW GET DADDY HIS SLIPPERS AND SOME BOURBON. DARKSEID'S FEET HURT. OH GODDAMMIT HERE COME THE PIGS TO HASSLE DARKSEID SOME MORE WHO DIDN'T SEE THIS COMING

The current Goblet of Sorrow plotline is cracking me up. DO NOT DEPOSIT WITHIN IT THE LEAVINGS OF YOUR CURRENCY! ASS!

After word of the Iran protests was able to slip through the Tehran regime's grasp thanks to Twitter, I went from hating the site to on-the-fence. Even after a couple weeks of Twitter use, I remained up on that fence. DARKSEID JENKINS is officially my tipping point. TWITTER IS!

also:

"IN POINT-FIVE MILES YOU WILL SUBMIT BOTH TO THE LEFT HAND TURN AS WELL AS TO DARKSEID'S WILL." THEN IT GOES BING-BONG.

Why is Darkseid Jewish?

Whenever supervillains show up on twitter...it's never the ones you'd hope. Like Ashton Kutcher. Sure he's got that whole plan to destroy western civilization rocking, but I never sense the anger and bitterness that typically drives world dominating types from aplusk.

In other words, thank the twitterverse for HOBODARKSEID. I'm sure I will enjoy his gritty realism for a good long while.

Why is Darkseid Jewish?

Because he was circumcised?

Let's not forget the Jack Chick-style Darkseid tract...
