That Darn Dog

I learned something interesting over the weekend. My dad hates Krypto. I mean he really hates Krypto.

My father is an old school Superman fan. Not quite "haul Hitler and Stalin to the Hague" old school, but old school enough. My dad started reading Superman comics in the 50's. Which is part of the reason why I was so surprised that he hates Krypto. I mean, that's when they started adding all that stuff. My dad made it through most of the Silver Age.

But when he heard that Krypto was still around he was visibly annoyed. It's funny because I've never really been a big fan of Krypto either. Sure, I tolerate the dog because we don't see him around that much. But I don't like him.

My father feels differently, and in deference to him I feel I should go with his judgment on this matter. He's usually right about such things. So Krypto? You just made my list.

He doesn't like Krypto?

I...I am stunned! Next you'll be telling me that he can't stand Rex the Wonder Dog or Streaky!

I can't stand Beppo though. Stupid monkey.

He also expressed disdain for said monkey.

I don't think he's particularly keen, Jake.
