Bruce’s friend (6): This is my friend Bruce
Bruce’s friend’s mother (35): Aha, yes, Bruce Wayne
Bruce: (6) That’s right
Bruce’s friend’s mother: You’re Batman then...
Bruce: NO, I’m BRUCE WAYNE
Bruce friend’s mother: But didn’t you know that Batman’s real name is Bruce Wayne?
Bruce: No, I knew that Batman was called Batman.
Gustavo’s comment: If your surname is Wayne you simply can’t call your poor kid Bruce – he’ll be teased for the rest of his life...
