Batman, The Dark Knight vs. Batman, Turkey

The Dark Knight has a new enemy to battle: the mayor of Batman, Turkey!

Huseyin Kalkan, the pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party mayor of Batman, has accused "The Dark Knight" producers of using the city's name without permission.

"There is only one Batman in the world," Kalkan said. "The American producers used the name of our city without informing us." [...]

The mayor is prepping a series of charges against Nolan and Warner Bros., which owns the right to the Batman character, including placing the blame for a number of unsolved murders and a high female suicide rate on the psychological impact that the film's success has had on the city's inhabitants.

Wow. This is almost idiotic as the Lesbians (from Lesbos) taking offense at the use of the word lesbian to describe a homosexual female.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
