This Man Ate a Comic Book As a Protest, But What Happens Next Will Astound You!

Gawker style journalism, right here.



Source: ThanosCopter Newswire

Henry Cecil, a 42 year old man from Brooklyn, was so upset by a recent issue of Superman/Wonder Woman, he decided to eat the comic book as a protest against what he feels is a forced romance between two of DC's largest characters.  "It was supposed to be a form of civil disobediance," Cecil told the Outhouse. 

But what he didn't expect was his stomach to have a violent reaction to the 32 pages worth of dried ink on the paper.  Nor did he expect the staples he consumed to perforate his intestines, forcing doctors to conduct emergency surgery and remove several feet of his intestines, plus his spleen.  

"In hindsight, I probably should have just bitched on the Internet about the comic," Cecil said while recovering in his hospital.  "I probably would still have all of my organs if I did that." 

So what's the moral of this story?  Don't eat comic books. And don't believe nonsense stories with crappy, sensationalized article titles.  And fuck you for clicking on this shitty, sensationlist link.

This guy's lucky the book didn't possess his body from the inside and make him buy more Nu52 books, then proceed to end all life as we know it.

Wait, where's Professor Puffinbottoms?
I was hoping to know his medical opinion about the fact, what a letdown...

That sounds like more of a long-term side effect. Give it a while. :D

As Rob Liefeld has taught us, you're better off just yelling at your comics.

¿Por qué se puede comer un cómic que es esta buena ?

Symbolically, eating something means you seek to absorb its strengths...

What he meant to do was defecate or piss on the comic... that's the universal mark of contempt...

What a dumb ass... hope he enjoyed whatever cheap instant of fame it brought him...

I think it was more stupid for him to not think of the harmful physical side effects, but you're right. ;) I think he was considering that he wanted to turn the book into the physical "shit" that he thought it was in plotline quality. Failing miserably, of course, but still. XD :lol:
