Our society is a weird place, full of contradictions, social taboos and unspoken rules of behavior.

For example, if you arrived at a business outing on the golf course wearing a replica Batman suit from The Dark Knight, you’d be risking a demotion, if not full termination.

However, if you were to show up to that same outing driving a replica golf cart of the Tumbler vehicle Gotham's hero drove in the film, you’d be given a handshake, maybe even a promotion.

Well, in service of climbing the ladder: cloaked in black alloy, the 1,400-pound Gotham Golfcart cruises on a six-pack of course-ready tires that are powered by a six-HP electric go-kart motor that can boost the vehicle to decidedly non-threatening 38 MPH.

With space for multiple bags above the replica afterburner, the batted-out ride has extra touches like a four-link rear suspension, adjustable leather seats and a lighting system.

Priced at $28,500, Hammacher Schlemmer asks that interested parties call 1-800-227-3528 but does warn that “special conditions and guarantee limitations apply to this product.”

Probably just not insured against the Joker. Might want to ask your agent about that.
