  The Rise of Bat Boy

A cool podcast from Skeptic magazine on Batboy and the Weekly World News.

In the pantheon of American monsters, only one truly dominated the newspapers of the 1990s. Checkout lines everywhere were haunted by the bald-headed, wide-mawed visage of Bat Boy.

What was Bat Boy, and where did he come from? The MonsterTalk team interviews cartoonist Tye Bourdony, a former employee of the Weekly World News. Bourdony shares his insights about Bat Boy and the rise and fall of the famous tabloid paper.

Insane Clown Possee's new syrupy video paves the way for their transformation to an X-tian cult.

The Posse is about to transform into a Christian cult.

Seriously, if you take the curse words out of the video and wipe that ridiculous clown makeup off the jackasses rapping, these dudes could make a (second) mint off touring the mega-church circuit with this song. But they don't need to, because they've got a big enough audience of incredibly and inexplicably devout followers start their own mega-church -- which is precisely what they plan to do.

That's right, we're calling it. Let the conspiracy-theorizing start here: ICP is turning their marketing savvy and army of dedicated followers into the next big Christian cult. Step aside Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons -- the Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Clown is on the rise.

I don't know which surprises me less: that a geek put on a real cosplay show and fancies himself a superhero; or that there's a league of them, and they haven't pulled their homepage out of 1995.

Looks like he's registered on the World Superhero Registry, too.


He calls himself the Watchman. He won't give his real name.

His identity is obscured by a bright red mask that covers half his goateed face. He wears black boots, black pants, black leather gloves and a black trench coat, but there's a large yellow circle on the chest of his black hooded sweatshirt, with a big W.

"I'm what people refer to as a real-life superhero," he says.

By night, on weekends, he patrols Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, looking for injustice and evildoers. By day? That's a mystery.
