    I am sure her car also transformed into the bat-cycle with the twin turrets in the front as well.

    These formulaic & fictional stories are getting old.

    Anyway, here's the original fictional story that this one is based off of.

    No thanks on the Nigerian investment, but a cute little story that makes someone smile isn't all bad.

    It's not all bad, but when you watch a fictional story evolve in an attempt to be more realistic, it's just a precursor to urban legends and false facts.

    George Washington chopping down a cherry tree, Yamamoto quote about guns behind every blade of grass, or my favorite, the ol' "I thought you said there was no one available." story. Each started as a light hearted story, and each can be found all over being quoted as fact.

    I have actually witnessed a family fighting because the a son called B.S. on his father who was convinced Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seals sniper with over 150 kills.

    I love a good story, but a story doesnt evolve from "a guy got pulled over by a policeman" to "I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding on U.S.166 Eastbound at Mile Marker 73 just East of Sedan, KS." unless someone is trying to pass it off as a factual account of history.
