Really Lame Superpowers (Party Day 3)

Perhaps by now you've read the headlines. In my defense, he had it coming.

Slapping a guy in Florida isn't exactly a superpower. But sometimes that bar is pretty low. So, today's question is:

In your opinion, what is the lamest superpower?

I've got a few that top my list:

"Form ice bridge!"

Telepathic communication that's limited to fish.

Deja vu

An invisible jet that doesn't make the things inside invisible.

The ability to moisten things.

(you can tell I've thought about this for a while, huh?)

Deja vu

Being a token minority (don't get me started on Apache Chief again).

Rich won Tuesday's GIVEAWAY. What did you win, Rich?
The list of options is here, along with the details for TODAY'S GIVEAWAY WHICH IS GOING ON RIGHT HERE! In the immortal words of David Letterman, "Call the neighbors, and wake the kids!"

Hmmm...this is a hard one! Super Sleepy! A superhero who can sleep at a moment's notice!

Actually, that sounds rather convenient. Now I wish I had that power!

Peter Smith said...

Hey, Apache Chief was awesome! And I'd like to point out that the ability to moisten things can be a very useful superpower.

I like the idea of deja vu as a superpower. It reminds me of something, but I can't put my finger on it.

Vicki Rocho said...

Deja vu can be a superpower? That's awesome! The lamest? How about that nose snort / loogie thing guys do? You know where they snort it directly out of one nostril then the other? (Lame and exceedingly grody!)

Disgruntled Bear said...

Emily, if that superpower's projective, I think I've been targeted today.

LOL, Vicki!

Peter, what was Apache Chief's superpower, other than being Native American? Seriously, he's the reason I wrote the "Token Woman" superhero skit for the Band movie that year.

Lamest superpower is hard... how about the ability to never burn food? (I didn't say the food was necessarily good - just not burnt.) Sure, it would be useful in everyday life, but in fighting crime and saving the world? Only if the bad guys are cooks...

Well, lamest is still the housekeeping one. But trying to think of weird superpowers caused a bizarre memory to surface. When C was in med school, he got a real kick out of a line in his anatomy text discussing a certain sphincter's "exquisite ability to distinguish between feces and flatus." It's weird to imagine basing a career on that skill, but it's a good one to have.

Peter Smith said...

Apache Chief had the power to grow to the size of a giant when he shouted the Apache phrase, "Innuk Chuk!" It was awesome.

(Loosely translated, "Innuk Chuk!" is a very dirty "Yo momma" joke. (Okay, I made that part up.))

Wednesday's winner is...Vicki Rocho!
