1038. At the Ice-cream Parlour

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 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...
