A girl stood in line in front of me at HMV, holding The Complete Superman Collection box set.

"The funny thing about that," I said, "is that it's actually worth more if you take the last disc out."

I guarantee that's the same opening line Jerry Seinfeld would have used. Superman superfan that he is, even he'd have had to rip on Superman IV: The Quest for Peace in those circumstances. I know this because I happened to be holding a copy of season 4 of Seinfeld just then, and I felt the words literally travel up my arm and out my mouth.

I'm really glad you were talking about "Superman IV" there. I hate to admit it, but with all this talk of discs, I thought at first that it was a reference to Christopher Reeve's spine.
