Jimmy Olsen guards the Fortress of Solitude

with 3 comments

Seriously.  From the article:

From the outside, only the entryway is visible. It resembles an elongated concrete tower capped by a glass artwork depicting frozen ice crystals.

Ahead of the opening, the entrance was decorated with igloo-like cubes of snow, and an ice sculpture of a polar bear. Seed vault worker Jimmy Olsen was standing outside with a rifle slung from his shoulder.

“My job is to keep away people who aren’t supposed to be here, and guard against polar bears,” he said. There are an estimated 3,000 polar bears on the islands.

  1. Seriously, if you were building an ice fort in Arctic, how could you not hire the guy named Jimmy Olsen? My Irony Meter has spiked quite that hard since… last week when McCain ran afoul of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law. But before that it had been awhile.
