True, because I actually saw this on the news last night.
Holy calendar, Batman -- what day is it?

VICTORIA - Some superheros are not super-smart.
Fathers' rights activists should have checked their calendars before descending on Victoria dressed in superhero costumes on a statutory holiday.
About 5:30 a.m., the commissionaries at the legislature phoned Victoria police when they noticed several men dressed as Batman, Robin and the Joker climbing the legislature walls.
"They used a ladder, climbed up on a ledge and tied themselves to the building," said Const. Jack Sarna. "They were protesting [for] fathers' rights."
Police checked on the superhero protest, then called the fire department and asked for a ladder truck. An officer climbed into the bucket and managed to talk the men down.
A little later, two men -- one dressed as the Incredible Hulk -- climbed on the Johnson Street Bridge and tied themselves on to disrupt traffic.
"But there was not a lot of traffic," said Sarna. "I think they forgot what day it was. The police said 'Come on down' and away they went."
