It's... CLAMP MAN!

Pre-Blog Note: Appparently, I'm 2 years off on this post (and it's already been on CNN, but this still kills me. --C5)

Who's going to take on the 'cowboy clampers'? It's Clamp Man! (a must-see link)

That's right. Apparently in the UK there's a problem with hooligan businessmen who'll clamp your car and then demand an outrageous fee to release your car. Apparently, "clamping" (what we call the 'Boot' here) is unregulated there as long as it's on private property. But, as usual, a few people take it a bit too far.

Clamp Man's answer? Just call him. He'll cut your clamp for free. And that's not all!

"I may not be able to single-handedly and totally cast off the repressive shackles of a corrupt government - but I can cut off your wheel-clamps for you."

He's not the only amateur superheroes, either.

I'd be impressed by ANYONE being able to provide a service like this.

The fact that he can provide this service, while wearing tights and a cape, makes him truly a hero in my book.

From the first link:

"Basically, he jumped out of his car in his outfit and said, 'If anyone can,
Angle-Grinder Man can,' " Tendai said in a telephone interview. "Then he just started sawing it off. It was wicked."

I'm telling you... a hero.
