  • Son: “Why is he called Black Lightning if his lightning is blue?”
  • Father: “Well, son, he’s called Black Lightning because he used to have a giant afro and a V-necked costume. He didn’t even have lightning powers in those days; he just beat people up in the ghetto. And his real name was Jefferson Pierce, because the negroes, they like to name their children after presidents like Garfield, Lincoln, Rutherford B. Hayes and, of course, Kennedy.”
