Bullet dodging on the tram

As the first snow of the year settled on the unsuspecting drivers in rush traffic, I sat on the tram and happened to see two girls in front of me who was playing with dolls. Well, action figures to be correct. They each had a figure of Elastigirl from The Incredibles, quite likely the sole survivor from a happy meal package.

Twenty-something years ago, I remember children playing with action figures like He-Man and Action Force, attacking each other with swords and guns. What were the girls doing with the figures?

They performed Matrix-style bullet dodging in slow-motion.

I guess old Bob was right, “The times they are a-changin’…”. On the topic of bullet dodging, I hope you know why they call him Bullet-Dodging Boris? Because he dodges bullets. Have a look at the excellent movie Snatch.
