...that go great together!

I know there's a lot of important things going on...and there's some other stuff I wanna talk about, but how can I NOT post about this?

Ringo Starr to become animated superhero

'Spider-Man' creator Stan Lee has
partnered with Ringo Starr to turn the former Beatle
into an animated hero.
The man behind the comic books 'Fantastic Four', 'The X-Men' and
'The Hulk', will base his superhero on the personality of
Ringo Starr and Ringo will voice the character.

Although Ringo has been portrayed as a cartoon character
before in The Beatles cartoon and the 'Yellow Submarine' movie, the
only other time he has played himself in a cartoon was he
guest starred in 'The Simpsons'.

"This is going to be one of the most exciting adventures I've had all day"
said Ringo in a statement. "What a terrific opportunity to meet
and work with the great Stan Lee. I'm so excited to become a
'reluctant superhero." "We're in the first stages of creating this soon to
be masterpiece. Adding music to this adventure is something I am also looking
forward to. See you in animation land."

The premiere Purveyor of Wonder teams up with an ex-Beatle to create ... well, we'll see what they come up with, but I for one, oh fearless follower of fun, am looking forward to the first action packed adventure.

And I can't wait for the episode titles:

"With a little help from his friends!"

"Lo, there shall come a Starr!"

"Act Naturally...for justice!"

"Being a hero Don't Come Easy"

And you must take a shot everytime you hear the phrase: "...our hapless hero marches to the beat of his own drum..."
