Watch Superman’s Best Friend: You will believe a dog can … um …

Although it’s often been said that the Man of Steel, with his god-like powers, can be difficult to relate to, many a dog owner have found themselves in the same place as the Last Son of Krypton in Superman’s Best Friend, the beautiful and mesmerizing animated short film by Brent Underhill. The premise is simple: Superman arrives at the Fortress of Solitude to discover Krypto waiting, in dire need of a walk. The execution, however, is hilarious, if perhaps a bit not safe for work for those squeamish about the detailed depiction of a (super-) dog answering the call of nature.

There was no “logic” to the joke. If we assume that Kryptonians urinate and defecate and (as the cartoon depicts) that kryptonian feces create fortresses of solitude, then every time Clark Kent takes a dump, a new fortress appears in a Metropolis sewer plant.

Hank: Uhhhhh, really? Was that comment really necessary? I mean, I can admit it, this comment isn’t necessary, but cmon, man.

Quick Fact. Super man shits IN the sun.
