Barry Allen (secret identity of the Silver Age Flash) had a girlfriend named Iris West -- no relation to Spokane's former mayor. She could be a bit of a pain. At one time, she was a newspaper reporter for a publication called Picture News. One can only imagine what her editors said about her behind her back.
"Did you have a chance to read the latest opus from Iris?"
"Yes. I think you should tell her that it needs to shrink by about half."
"I would but I'd be no use to my family once my head has been bitten off."
