Ventriloquism is an act of stagecraft in which a person (a ventriloquist) changes his or her voice so that it appears that the voice is coming from elsewhere, usually a puppeteered "dummy." The act
of ventriloquism is ventriloquizing, and the ability to do so is commonly called in English the ability to "throw" one's voice. Halle was a ventriloquist. She used a puppet (ventriloquial figure)
in her presentation named the Dictabird.


Ventriloquism is an act of stagecraft in which a person (a ventriloquist) changes his or her voice so that it appears that the voice is coming from elsewhere, usually a puppeteered "dummy." The act of ventriloquism is ventriloquizing, and the ability to do so is commonly called in English the ability to "throw" one's voice. Originally, ventriloquism was a religious practice. The noises produced by the stomach were thought to be the voices of the unliving, who took up residence in the stomach of the ventriloquist. The shift from ventriloquism as manifestation of spiritual forces toward ventriloquism as entertainment happened in the eighteenth century at the travelling funfairs and market towns.

Halle was a ventriloquist. She used a puppet (ventriloquial figure) in her presentation named the Dictabird. The Dictabird was a prehistoric animatronic bird creature "The Flintstones" gave Halle as a gift. Fred Flintstone felt "Jungle Fever" for Halle, but for her it was "Strictly Business." She didn't want to have problems with Wilma Flintstone, the red-headed wife of caveman Fred Flintstone. Beside, Fred and Wilma had a daughter, Pebbles Flintstone. Halle was not interested in being a home wreaker.

Fred was tired of "Father Hood" and wanted an affair to escape family responsibilities. Halle forced Fred to make an "Executive Decision" by being faithful to his family and forget her. Over time Halle and Fred became "Perfect Stranger."

In the past Halle had been a "Catwoman," Batman's most enduring love interest and was known for her complex love-hate relationship with him. She was known for doing the wrong things for the right reasons. Catwoman's favored weapon was a whip. Hopefully, she was not sadomasochist and never used it in BDSM. Instead, she used it to tame "The Wolverine."

On "New Year's Eve," her friends, "Frankie & Alice," convinced Halle to be a ventriloquist. She had to choose between being a "Catwoman" and a ventriloquist. But "The Call" from the noises produced by her stomach made her conscious about her ability to "throw" one's voice. She was also tired of wearing a tight, one-piece outfit that incorporated retractable metal claws on the fingertips of her gloves and sometimes on the toes of her boots. Not mentioning the cat's tail. She felt more comfortable wearing an animal skin two-piece stone age bikini and clunky jewellery. Not mentioning her Dictabird.

Before being a "Catwoman" Halle had been an "X-Men" during "Days of Future Past." She was known as Storm, a member of a fictional subspecies of humans born with superhuman abilities known as mutants. She was able to control the weather and atmosphere and was considered to be one of the most powerful mutants on the planet. She could modify the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture (at a molecular level), generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and had demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. She could incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes, as well as mist. She could dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

But Halle wanted to have a normal life. She didn't want to be a mutant or a superhero blessed with super powers or special abilities. At the end, she was happy just being a ventriloquist. A miracle would be welcomed to save the Earth from global warming. But Halle has no answer as she is no longer Storm. If she had known that the situation would become so dramatic, maybe, would she had made the sacrifice to remain Storm to fight global warming and sacrifice her personal happiness. We'll never know.

As an average woman Halle didn't worry about manipulating the weather or Batman anymore. She was more interested in what average women worried about.

"Sexiness is a state of mind - a comfortable state of being. It's about loving yourself in your most unlovable moments."

Average women worry more about sexiness than mutants or superhero. If you love yourself you'll feel sexy, even in your most unlovable moments.

"The man for me is the cherry on the pie. But I'm the pie and my pie is good all by itself. Even if I don't have a cherry."

If you ask a man he'll tell you women are the cherry. A cherry cannot be good all by itself?

"The first step is clearly defining what it is you're after, because without knowing that, you'll never get it."

The goal in life is to define goals. Still, so many people get lost because they can't define clearly what they want in life. This happens because they don't know themselves.

"When you have short hair, there's just a feeling of here I am. What you see is what you get. And there's a confidence that comes with wearing short hair and I like the way that makes me feel."

Usually men have short hair and women long hair. Is that the reason why men tend to be more confident than women? If it really works like that, bald people must be super confident.

"So, goodnight Halle. Life is like a "Boomerang." Whatever you throw out there will always return. It's also known as The Law of Cause and Effect."
