    Nikkei, RE: Your Signature

    Lex Luthor is a genius and criminal mastermind who controls a multi-billion dollar corporate empire. Why would he need to steal 40 cakes? Are they perhaps frosted with Gold Kryptonite icing? Was the flour used to bake them made form solidified red sunlight? Do they perhaps contain a special plutonium extract that can be used to power his battle suit?

    I just do not understand his motivation for confectionary larceny as it does not apparently further his goal of the destruction of Superman.

    Also, the top row only has 9 cakes, so it looks like he actually only stole 39 cakes. But don't get me wrong, it's still fairly terrible. (The terribility calculation is off by 2.5% from the original estimate put forth by the book.)

    He ate one cake.

    But you would think that he would be on a low-carb diet to fit in his purple spandex jump suit. I would totally expect that from Solomon Grundy, but Lex seems so calorie conscious.

    Low carb diets actually make you fatter percentage wise, I'm certain he is aware of this.

    Lex would have paid someone to steal the cakes.

    What is the thrill of breaking into a bakery and knocking down a few little old ladies (and possibly fracturing their hips), when you have a Plutonium powered exoskeleton and can break into Fort Knox and loot some gold?

    Then again, Lex could have done it for the fun of fracturing the bakers' hips, but you would think they would mention that in the story since it is a lot more terrible than eating a cake in front of them, then absconding with the remaining 39.

    It's cake, cake is good. This is why.

    rofl he took the cakes because he is evil and stealing cakes is evil. so he did it. And there is 40 cakes, one is flying off in the original but I cut it down so it could be my sig.You can see a small piece of it on the top towards the right.

    I don't get it.

    If no one was looking to see him steal 40 cakes, who took the picture of him stealing them?

    he did. it was self promotion. He took the picture and put it in children's books trying to teach them about the number 40 while at the same time brainwashing them to steal cakes as well. He's evil. And that's terrible. =(

    Maybe he isn't as terrible as we all think. Look, he has only one leg, which means he is hopping around with these cakes. Anyone could have caught him but they let him go because they felt sorry for him. You know how hard it is for one-legged arch villains to get a job?

    He's just trying to feed his family. Not unlike how gilsellers are trying to make a living. Think about that before you pass judgement.

    You have to buy the book to find out! But that pic clearly shows his left leg is missing.
