Some examples of how Superman isn't all powerful

People keep talking about how omnipowerful Superman is, but here's a couple of examples of things he can't do as well as other beings : my examples are a couple of ordinary kids and a rabbit.

He can't drink chocolate milk as fast as the Quik Bunny:

He's not that good with computers, at least in 1981, why else would he need those kids?

Well if he ever has to go against the Quik Bunny in a chocolate milk drinking competition when the fate of the world is at hand, we're all screwed.

Superman was holding back. The power of his lungs can blow down buildings, you're telling me he can't suck up a glass of milk faster than a bipedal rabbit?

I guess 1) Drinking chocolate milk is the Quik Bunny's specialty, so if that was a power on Comicvine, he'd be #1 at that. 2) Maybe because sucking a straw takes more finesse than blowing down buildings, Superman can't use all his strength 3) Maybe his blowing down buildings power > his sucking in power (no comments from the peanut gallery) 4) that's what the comic says, though I don't think Superman Meets the Quik Bunny is considered Superman canon.

Sucking chocolate milk into your lungs is bad for them... even for Kryptonians.

Especially if its powdered brown kryptonite - which turns Superman into a sellout.
