The Penguin (Patton Oswalt) is forced to deal with a delusional “Dark Knight” in a darkly comic spoof released by CollegeHumor on Monday.
The short begins with a typical scene for Batman (Pete Holmes), as he rescues Commissioner Gordon (Matt McCarthy) from the Gotham crime boss’ clutches. But when one of Penguin’s thugs tries to get the jump on him, the hero takes him down — literally — with a Batarang to the face, shaking both the victim and the villain.
“You guys don’t know this, but when criminals fight me, it’s exhausting,” Batman explains. “‘Cause I’m good. So they often have to nap afterwards.”
“You think they’re sleeping,” an incredulous Penguin replies.
“Poor little guy,” Batman says, as the camera returns to the slain henchman. “He’s all tuckered out.”
Gordon attempts to explain that Batman’s parents were shot and killed, only to be “corrected” by the Caped Crusader.
“My parents were shot, but they’re on a special farm,” Batman answers. “They’re on a special happy farm, where they make buttermilk. They romp, and play. There’s a hammock made of dreams. It’s a very plausible situation: old rich people go to farms.”
After Batman dispatches another goon with his “triangle blades,” Penguin attempts to get him to understand what’s going on.
“If the metal ‘triangle blade’ hits a flesh neck, what happens?” he asks the vigilante.
“They go to sleep, like I do,” Batman answers. “And then they wake up, just like me. Usually with a boner. I call it the Bat-Signal.”
The confrontation escalates into a major redefinition of Batman’s classic “no guns” rule, as seen in this video by CollegeHumor, released April 15, 2013.
Protesters march on Gracie Mansion as criticism grows against NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been highly criticized for his response to the protests against police violence.
The mayor has been criticized by protesters and the press for violence inflicted by the New York Police Department.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly blasted the city's response.
Meanwhile, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) also criticized the mayor, for not doing his job.
Here are some of the scenes of protesters marching on Gracie Mansion, while the NYPD tried to protect the historic building:

Trump’s determination to quell protest crowd backfires as DC marchers grow larger
Marchers walking south on 16th Street grew progressively larger as they filled the roads and sidewalks Tuesday.
President Donald Trump dispatched the National Guard Monday as Park Police and Washington, DC PD members joined the mass of officers attempting to clear the streets.
It didn't work.
"This crowd is massive today and is spread around a bunch of downtown streets. Lots of people I’ve spoken to say this is their first day protesting, with some saying the overwhelming force used to clear folks last night motivated them to come speak out in person," said MSNBC's Garrett Haake.
