24 Signs Your Family Is Obsessed: The Very Best Batman Geekery of the Interwebz

Molly may be five years old, but she's my new BFF.

OMGOMGOMGOMG! Dark Knight Rises is in theaters tomorrow. Which means, even though he’s not allowed to see it, my 6-year-old son is nevertheless bouncing off the walls. This is also related to the fact that we have reached 100% in Lego Batman 2 on the Wii.

That’s right. I have mad skillz with Lego games, yo. Even though Superman flies like he’s drunk and the whole game is so dark it’s like I’ve had a stroke. Traveller’s Tales seriously needs to hire me as a Beta tester of their games on behalf of all the other moms who have to play these games with their Lego-obsessed, Asperger-y kids.

To me, the best thing about the impending release of Dark Knight Rises is the Batman-ification of all my friends’ Pinterest boards. Looking at Internet geekery is just hours of family fun for us.

It’s clear that some people are really taking their Batfandom to the next level, though. To that end, I give you: 25 signs that your family might be a tad obsessed. If this is you, I salute you.
