The Batman Vs The Riddler

This is a hilarious example of Batman's super deductive skills up against one of Riddler's insanely complex riddles, in a forum post gem.

riddle me this, eh? RT @JamesTheFourth: This is absolutely perfect. (@Ssnyder1835)

This reminds of all the Sixites Batman live action TV show and Batman the Animated Series Riddler episodes where Batman solves Riddler's cryptic riddles as if they were child's play. I was able to use a free OCR(Optical character recognition) web tool to convert the words in picture to text. There were a few other answers but none as well thought out as the one I'm sharing in the post. To see all response and the original image click on the link to the PNG above. The images used in the posts are also prefect.

Riddle me this, Batman!

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Obvious you are referring to 'Y'. The 25th letter in the alphabet. Meaning you will strike on the 25th, but what month?

You mean the DID Corporation. The Dragon in Dream corporation. Which opened in 2003. 2+0+0+3 = 5. May is the 5th month of the year. You will strike on May 25th. Which is the 145th day of the year. Which means you will also strike at 1:45.

>the chicken
A chicken: also known as a fowl. To run afoul. Or to run amok. Which is what you are about to do. But, knowing you, this usually constitute stealing.

The cross is a universal symbol of Christianity and sacrifice. As you and I may know, the Catholic Church just announced plans to order the most expensive cross ever. It is made out of pure gold, it is worth millions and is being produced in Gotham.

>The Road
A book by author Cormic McCarthy, who also wrote No Country For Old Men. No Country referring to international waters. Which the cross will sure to be shipped, since Gotham is producing it. You will attempt to steal the most expensive cross in the world, while it travels overseas, on May 25 at 1:45. See you there, Eddy.

F#(& you batman!
F#(& you!

This was so good. One of the funniest things I read in a while.
