Wonder Woman Comics, Fuzzy Blankets, & An Otter Tank

Most bands have something called a rider; basically it’s their list of “demands” or “wants” when they get to a venue. Some are pretty normal, like a certain brand of beer, towels, snacks, etc. But sometimes they get really bizarre.

Slayer once asked for 100 snow white goats for slaughter, a Halaal butcher to slaughter and cut up said goats, and freezer bags and coolers to put said goat meat in. Oh yeah, and they added 4 black yoga ball chairs to that list. That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard!

It got me thinking: if I were a HUGE rock star, what would I put on my rider? Here it is:
