Margaret “The Iron Lady” Thatcher (1925-2013) died of a stroke today, at a ripe 87. Via the BBC, I learned that her personal spokesman is called Lord Bell, which immediately made me crave a team-up of Lord Bell and Howard the Duck’s Dr. Bong. Granted, Steve Gerber already died in 2008, but still … can’t you just imagine it? “The Duplicitous Duo of Dastardliness … Lord Bell & Doctor Bong!” Along with Mecha-Maggie, they form an entity named Lord Iron Bong, which feeds the blood of union members. (Somebody call Grant Morrison!)
