A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
That’s what I’m getting out of this definition.
Seriously, in my head someone (probably Clark) went and knocked on the door to ask if Atom could come out and play and Mrs. Atom is just lying about where he is while Ray is hissing what to say to her and Clark cantotallyhear her, and is just looking more and more crestfallen.
Alternatively, this scenario could take place over the phone.
It still involves a crestfallen Clark, though.
The Justice League was just ensuring Catwoman’s punctuality.
I’m glad we solved that mystery.
On a definition note, that last sentence is super redundant. I’m pretty sure kids would have made the context clue connection that “awake” means “not sleeping” from that first sentence.
Is one of his two automobiles the Dragónmobile?
Because that would be awesome.
Just look at them!
So fancy. So sleek. That headband! That necklace! That vest/collar combo!
Also, Teri, I think you will find that many kids call a lot of women in their lives “aunt,” not just their mother’s sister, their father’s sister, or their uncle’s wife.
What if his aunt is one of Ted’s dad’s “special lady friends” because Ted’s parents divorced when he was a little boy in the 50s?
With that passable definition and example sentence, we end today’s edition of The Super Dictionary!
Come back tomorrow for hopefully a slightly less disturbing page of definitions!
Check out under the cut for today’s full page! (Including the questionable Black Canary definition for “attic.” That’s still weighing on my mind a little.
Clearly the best imagery for a children’s dictionary — a woman tied up and helpless in an attic.
Wait, Green Lantern?
Why Green Lantern? Did they forget about Green Arrow? Because Ollie is her good friend, not Hal.
But really I’m more concerned and distracted by the fact they for some reason, this is the best they could come up with for the definition of “attic.”
(I waffled a little, but decided to try to tag this with some trigger warnings. Please let me know if you think I should add any others.)
Maybe all those monsters are just figments of her fever dreams.
The careful detail of those bad guys really accentuate how little attention they paid to making that Golden Age Wonder Woman trace.
Speaking of those bad guys, who the hell is the Alfred in the purple tuxedo holding a steaming cup of tea? Is his plan to scald her with his single cup of tea? Or is it the cure for her horrible illness?
We won’t have the answer to this mystery for a while.
Was it a good guy? A bad guy? Did Atom try to eat an orange while he was tiny?
It’s not very good mountain day-time camouflage.
I guess she’s probably looking at some other airplane.
But I bet that airplane in the background is Wonder Woman’s crashing invisible jet!
Oh I get it now! Batgirl is looking at those fighter jets from that same page, and of course Batgirl can’t see the invisible jet because it’s invisible!
[Author’s Note: Sorry for this late conclusion, the queue (once again) screwed me around. TUMBLRRRRRRR D:< ]
And now it’s time to say good bye to all our company. T-H-E. (seeya real soon!) S-U-P. (why? because we like you!)
Okay I can’t do the whole Mickey Mouse Club finale song like this.
