I would have thought the Batman reference would give it away. Are people scratching their heads wondering if I really thought Batman was involved in this?

Maybe I should have added a bat-smiley.

Perhaps you should try your routine in Yuk Yuk before you try it in SE.

The same people will probably "get it", and the others won't, if so, you should just perform at Yuk Yuks.

from Anglocentric politics both got it and didn't see the humor ... sorry, humour.

And Jimmy says he still hasn't received your credit app ... Happy

BTW, to forestall ... The "Jimmy" reference is from the excellent Chazz Palmintieri Pepsi commercials. Chazz would solicit "man in the street" opinions of the product; said man having been "brought in" from the street by enforcer Jimmy. The best one had Simon Cowell forcibly ;ut in a chair by Jimmy. At the end, Chazz says, "Wonderful! Our first celebrity endorsement."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
