Batman beats Joker, but not harbour water

Batman may be able to save Gotham City from all types of evil, but it seems he's no match for Hong Kong's polluted waterways.

The caped crusader was scripted to jump from a plane into Victoria Harbour as part of a stunt for the filming of the latest movie, The Dark Knight, part of which is being shot in Hong Kong this week.

Gotta admire his um ... balloons

Those practical jokers from a certain MTV show have done it again. Before their launch press conference last Thursday, the guys from Whatever Things! managed to float one of their crew members over Victoria Harbour attached to a number of large helium balloons. Check out the incriminating photo.

A real Joker (no kidding)

Question: which of the following is not a Filipino nickname? Bongbong, Chin-Chin, Ding-dong, Lotlot, Ai-Ai. Answer: they are all Filipino nicknames. Foreigners new here often marvel at how so many Filipinos sport nicknames which are, how shall we say it, quaint, and charming and - oh, all right - they read like violent sound effects in a Looney Tunes cartoon.

Big finish for Childs

NEW Zealand star Greg Childs finished with a flourish and left Sha Tin determined to make next season one to remember.

Yu can make Leung merry

SECOND-SEASON handler Stephen Leung has already proved there is life after Gary Stevens.

Leung enjoyed a prolific spell while the great American pilot was in town but wins from the likes of Lickety Split on Wednesday night illustrate that not even Stevens is irreplaceable.

Joker Alison strikes again

REMEMBER Alison from yesterday? She who thought Keeping Posted was sexist and dared us to publish one of her anti-men jokes.

Now, emboldened by the fact that we took her up on her offer, she has sent us yet another blatantly, er . . . sexist joke.

So, at the risk of getting all the males in the territory groaning wearily, here goes.

Overdosing on Batman

DEVOTEES of Batman can joyfully O.D. on a double helping of the panty-hosed one tonight: first in the modern cartoon adaptation (Pearl, 8.30 pm); and later in Tim Burton's brooding film vision of Bob Kane's comic book hero.
