“I bet Spider-Man could make a lot of money putting up Christmas lights in New York”

The fictional comic superhero Spider-Man climbs buildings and shoots his spider webs across New York City, but perhaps he could have a second career hanging Christmas lights? “Dear spiderman we can use ur help putting up christmas lights” was posted on Twitter on November 27, 2009.

A popular one-liner was posted to Reddit—Shower Thoughts on November 29, 2014:

“I bet Spider-Man could make a lot of money putting up Christmas lights for the citizens of New York City.”


Wikipedia: Spider-Man
Spider-Man (also sometimes called Spiderman and Spider Man) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (Aug. 1962) in the Silver Age of Comic Books. Lee and Ditko conceived the character as an orphan being raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and as a teenager, having to deal with the normal struggles of adolescence in addition to those of a costumed crime-fighter. Spider-Man’s creators gave him super strength and agility, the ability to cling to most surfaces, shoot spider-webs using wrist-mounted devices of his own invention, which he calls “web-shooters”, and react to danger quickly with his “spider-sense”, enabling him to combat his foes.
