Don't Make Me Laugh!

Our moderator, Haywood, did a great job representing our humor theme for August. Haywood started by  
showing a compilation of Super Villains throughout the ages on his laptop. Animated figures of both Jack
Nicholson and Heath Ledger showed up as The Joker, with too many other bad guys / girls to mention. Fun
visual and fun naming as many of the villains as you could! He also showed the trailer for the highly
anticipated Aquaman, starring Jason Mamoa, which looked truly awesome. Fantastic job representing
villains past and present Haywood!  Discussion continued at the Land & Sea Diner. Great fun was had by
all.
