Dashing Delver

Dashing Delver

Digs holes at superhuman speed!

Leatherback will be slowly and steadily wondering why it suddenly got all dark.

Dashing Delver held the coveted title of Current Champ from Wednesday, June 25, 2008 to Wednesday, June 25, 2008, heartily vanquishing Leatherback the tortoise with more(tas) to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Kline the Landmine.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Kevin .


Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. "Delve" is one of of those words you don't hear often, but when you do hear it, you're like "That's a great word!"

    Or maybe that's just me. I don't want to dig deeper into it.

  4. From Mystery Men, an under-rated movie for sure:

    The Shoveller: Lucille, God gave me a gift. I shovel well. I shovel very well.
    Lucille: Honey, you shovel better than any man I've ever known, but that does not make you a super hero.
