What is Oldtron Podcast? Comic books, comedy…ish…yet another brand for this four year audio adventure across AIN’T IT COOL NEWS, POPTARDSGO.com and…that’s it really. We’re good, not that good. I’m Rob Patey. I’m hosting Mark Miller. We have been known as Optimous Douche and Ambush Bug, but we’re not proud of it. JD, our third member is ashamed of Bug’s past so he runs whenever he hears the bells of Uncle Drunkell Miller chime.

Sorry for the coughing, I’m sick.

Since the short, but sturdy stick of our usual geeky podcast tripod,  JD, is taking a break I don’t want to sully his poptards brand with my editorial flippancy. If I Rob Patey be behind the editing, OLDTRON PODCAST should bear the shame.

SCHOOL DRESS CODE SLAMS LID ON WONDER WOMAN LUNCHBOX #ASKROB

OK, SNOPES RELEASED THIS AS A HOAX, BUT I LEAVE IT AS A BADGE(R) OF SHAME THAT WE ALL SHOULD FACT CHECK AS WE BECOME THE COLLECTIVE MEDIA!!!

This week, Zentangler and more importantly mom for common sense, Cari Sultanik, #ASKSROB about this war on women of wonder and lunch: 

WONDER WOMAN LUNCH BOXRob, please help me understand why this Wonder Woman lunchbox has been banned from school because it promotes violence?

Is the definition of violent characters truly “those who solve problems using violence.” Who else would you suggest this school ban on this child’s lunchbox because they are “violent characters” by their definition?

Great Question Cari,

Let’s dissect the facts as reported by my nemesis at Comic Book Resources (I can’t deny it’s a better comic site than the one I write for, so I hate them).

Revealed on Imgur, a friend’s daughter received a letter from school stating she could no longer bring her Wonder Woman lunchbox to school as it violates the school dress code.

ROB RESPONSE: I AGREE! Lunch boxes will barely cover your child, and they chafe. No child should EVER wear a lunchbox to school. Isn’t there a charity stopping this act?

The real rub comes down to what the school defines as “violent characters,” which are “those who solve problems using violence. Super heroes certainly fall into that category.”

ROB RESPONSE: Oh, so this has nothing to do with modesty and shame and everything to do with schools now acting like Congress with piss poor tangential riders on bills or laws.

Wonder Woman does use violence to thwart violence. If you are abut to be punched you don’t pull posies out of your pocket (unless you are Zantanna and they have sleep spores in the posies). WE ALL USE VIOLENCE.

Does this lunchbox promote violence though? No, she’s smiling. This was a time Wonder Woman used smile, guile and pinup good looks to save the day. She also has used intelligence, cunning and quite recently the inbred female trait of hypocrisy to get Clark Kent to do as she says not as she does (it was an argument on whether you put all the toilet paper up or down on building they reconstructed after Parasite attacked).

Sounds to me like the school board and decision makers:

A) Get off on the power trip most educators like to have over weak minded children because real adults are too mean to work with HARUMPH!!!

B) Have a broad goose to gander policy on banning creativity and imagaanitive hope

C) Never read a fucking comic book in their life and get all of their info from the 700 club.

Violence simply is. We don’t need to promote it, we just got it as a species. I’ll never condone a picture of someone getting shot on a lunchbox, but a cartoon punch? Yea, I’m ok there. Is it violence? Sure. Is it violent? No. And you are nothing but a politically correct asshole too mired in black and white or yes and no thinking to live in a world I acknowledge. Certainly in charge of civic services.

Myopic. Stupid. Wrought with policies that trip over one another. Public Education (also most Catholic Schools at this point).

Sorry kids, we tried.
