• Batman needs help to change the flat on his Lamborghini Gallardo

In the Philippines, "Bahala na si Batman" - translated, it means: "Leave it to Batman" - is a popular phrase people say when they’re in a conundrum. The whole premise of that quote is that whatever pickle we find ourselves in, Batman always has a solution.

What we found out earlier today unfortunately shattered that myth because even the Caped Crusader has no answer when it comes to changing a flat tire on his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

The whole escapade happened in Maryland earlier this week when the Howard county Police department responded to a 911 call emanating from Route 29, north of Washington, D.C. The call, which came from a passing motorist, said: "There is a disabled motorist southbound on 29. He’s in the left lane, he’s in like a Lamborghini. He is dressed in a Batman costume and he is hanging out halfway in the roadway."

Knowing that people could still be on their Halloween hangover, the responding officers thought the call was nothing more than a prank. Then they got to the scene and saw the Lamborghini. And then they saw Batman.

As it turned out, the Dark Knight was on his way to a Washington hospital for an appearance when he blew out one of the tires in his Gallardo Spyder. After a short while, the Gallardo was eventually towed away and Batman was picked up by one of his buddies - we suspect it was Alfred - to drop him off at his appearance.

But that wasn’t before a Howard County officer took a posterity photo with Batman, probably to show his kids that at one point in his life, he was the one that came to the Caped Crusader’s aid.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

It’s a great image to look at. I thought Batman knew everything and capable of doing things like saving lives, but sadly, his car is in trouble when his tires blew. I’m glad Robin wasn’t there to appear also.

Haha. This one is funny. I really agree that Filipinos often say that words, Leave it to Batman, but in this case, Batman can’t do nothing for his flat tires. smiley Good to have that police. smiley
