Gail Simone continues to be excellent at Twitter.

Gang, it’s been a tough week. Or a tough month. Year? Decade? Either way, I’m exhausted. Luckily for all of us, the indefatigable Gail Simone is here to lift our spirits with another delightfully nerdy Twitter hashtag game. The author asked her followers to come up with a Yelp review written by none other than the Dark Knight himself, Batman.

And why not Batman? He has more than enough money to frequent all the popular establishments in town, and as billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne he has his pulse on all the trendiest places to see and be seen at. Not to mention, the guy is a shopaholic: capes, cowls, spy tech, lobster thermidor. He even has a personalized credit card:

Where does he get those wonderful toys? Twitter was more than game to dive in and share their passionate geekery:

Nerd Twitter took the premise and ran with it, delivering some delightful responses. Apparently the Caped Crusader is passionate about justice and good customer service. Batman: he’s just like us!

Trends like these remind us that Twitter isn’t always a steaming hellscape. Great work, everyone!
