FUNNY: Shreveport-Bossier City, What’s Your Southern Superpower?
I think we can all agree that life in Louisiana is unique and with Geek'd Con 2023 coming up this weekend, I thought it would be fun to ask about Southern superpowers!
If you could have any Southern superpower, what would it be Shreveport-Bossier City, LA?
I don't know about you, but I'd be able to turn a regular glass of iced tea into the Southern sweet classic with the blink of an eye if I was granted Southern superhero powers! When you think about it, a Southern superhero would have to have novel superpowers that wouldn't be appreciated anywhere else. Let's face it, we march to the beat of a different drummer down here, but I wouldn't change a thing... even if that means that we have to claim Jimbo and his overalls with hidden pockets and contraptions that make him a combination of Mr. Gadget and Batman!
