Ok I peed myself when I read this one … Montreal is getting ready for ComicCon and it seems Batman got himself into some kind of trouble. Read the full article from The Montreal Gazette here:

MONTREAL – It seems even the Batmobile can be ticketed for parking illegally in Montreal.

The city’s parking enforcement officers were not amused when they came across the Caped Crusader’s famous ride (or a very accurate replica) parked outside of HMV near the corner of Peel and Ste. Catherine on Thursday afternoon. The nearby parking meter had apparently not been fed.

“Who does this car belong to?” the officers asked as a large crowd began to gather around the vehicle and snap photos. “You have to pay… It can’t just be here like this.”

In the end, no ticket was issued. The owners of the car paid the parking fee, and the officers backed off.

The vehicle is in town for this weekend’s Comiccon convention, along with a replica of the time-travelling car featured in the Back to the Future films.

I’m pretty sure Batman has some kind of  “Anti-Parking Ticket BatSpray” or something along these lines … Ha ha ha!
 
Have a nice Dorky Day!
