Peeing On Things Because I’m Badass Aquaman, Bro, GET SOME

(Warner Bros.)

As it becomes depressingly clear that Brett Kavanaugh is almost definitely getting nominated to the Supreme Court, I needed something to keep me from committing arson. So I watched the new Aquaman trailer. Which for some reason is five fucking minutes long and seems to give away entire action sequences. Sure, why not?

However, despite Warner Bros. finally learning that people actually like superhero movies that feature bright costumes ripped straight from the comics— Not being grim, murder-brawls that look like a goddamn funeral also helps. — Aquaman still leans heavily into whatever dudebro shit was going on in Justice League. It is hilariously jarring, but more importantly, it opened a door for me to make way too many pee jokes, which naturally, I jumped all over because I am an adult.

Enjoy.
