Super Mensch


"Mama? Is Superman Batman's assistant?"

"No. Superman is a separate superhero."

"Then who is Batman's assistant?"

"He doesn't have an assistant but he has a sidekick guy named Robin."

"A sidekick? So Robin is the assistant?"

"He's like a junior Batman. He's the Boy Wonder."

"Assistant."

"Okay."

"Who is Superman's assistant?"

"He doesn't have one. He works alone."

"I think he does have one. His name is Jewbin."

"Jewbin?"

"Yes. He's the Superman helper."

"Is Jewbin Jewish?"

"I don't know. His name is just Jewbin."

"Does Jewbin celebrate Hanukkah?"

"Maybe? He's the assistant though and Jewbin has assistant powers."

"Like filing and rolling calls?"

"What's a filing?"

"I think I need a Jewbin."

  1. Jewbin makes perfect sense to me. Robin has always needed a friend so they can kvetch about their bosses.

  5. I used to be a Jewbin before I had my kid. Believe me, it's not all it's cracked up to be.
