The Shadow (1994)


Oh hi,

Welcome to that most wretched lair of villainy, The internet. A series of pneumatic tubes that lead into the homes, apartments, businesses and back alleys of our lives. Do I know what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Oh yeah….you better believe I do. I’m the tube man.

Hey Billy how are you enjoying yourself so far on Bring Your Kid to Work Day. I bet you didn’t know your old man was so important didja! Yep, Operating the tubes is an important job Billy! It’s how this town keeps moving. It’s not just the taxis up above, it’s all the guys like your dad working down below too. Watch your hands Billy…you don’t want to get sucked up into one of them tubes.

Yep, pretty important business down here Billy…oh look! An incoming message! Careful, that one almost got’cha Billy! Hmmm…looks like it is a message from the boss up top.

“Dear Tube man,” Hey that’s your old man Billy! “Due to recent technological advances your position has been eliminated. Signed, The Shadow.”
Why that son of bitch Billy! He’s firing us. The nerve! and he didn’t even do us the courtesy of doing it in person. Which is fine I suppose…he’s kind of a freak anyways…always hiding behind furniture and laughing maniacally like a 5 year old who thinks you can’t see him. I can see your shadow dumbass…

What’s that…what am I doing Billy? Well I’ll tell you what I am doing Billy…I’m finishing off this Peking Duck your mom sent us for lunch and I’m mustering up a special delivery for the boss. The moon is shining….but the ass is drippy. Oh yeah….we are about to drop a bomb on this town! Suck this Baldwin!

What? You guys didn’t stay for the post credit scenes setting up the ongoing cinematic universe of second rate comics characters? Spoilers. Randy?
