stupidity isn't a form of knowing things
Whenever Dane Cook sees a guy in a Superman T-shirt, he wants to shoot them in the chest, and if they start bleeding he says "GUESS NOT!"

I had no idea Superman T-shirts were prevelant enough to be provoke such ire. I've only seen one guy in one (not counting this photo) and he's a pretty serious fan. Seriously, that's a pretty fucking anti-hipster/geek-social joke to make.

Besides, being impervious to bullets is really one of the less interesting Supermanish traits. I'd say he should toss 'em off a building and see if they fly.

My fiancee has a Superman shirt.

Your dad was a joker, huh?

actually people were pretty surprised when he felt led to the minstry...

There's something to that actually. We all know that Superman puffed up his chest as people fired bullets at it. But then they'd throw their gun-- and he'd duck. hunh?

I've heard someone make a snarky comment about "that's because George Reeve is immune to imaginary bullets but not heavy prop pistols"

Takes away some of the magic though.

Maybe back then, Superman could still get disoriented by the heavy object hitting him.

Maybe gun handles have kryptonite? As opposed to the ordinary Terrestrial bullets.

"Police Squad!," the zany parody of 1950s/60s cop shows had a great gag based on the throw pistol: they showed Frank Drebin having in a gunfight, where he and some goon were shown behind cover in opposing angles until a wide shot came along to indicate that they were mere feet apart and more or less aiming past each other. After each ran out of bullets, they'd throw their guns--and then produce from every pocket more empty guns to throw at the other. That is absolutely a fantastic gag.
