A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
At first I thought, “Oh he got a splinter or just kind of got one of those little cuts you get when you do menial labor.”
But no, apparently he cut his hand so badly that Jody had to cut his food for him.
That is a pretty bad cut.
And apparently he does this often.
What was the rope cut for, Jody? A tourniquet for that time Tomahawk accidentally stabbed himself in the leg?
I think this is the first (and possibly only) time that The Super Dictionary deigns to acknowledge that a superhero who isn’t Superman has a secret identity, even though they gave us that handy-dandy guide way back when. I’m surprised they bothered, since we’ve seen our heroes, apparently in costume, doing the most mundane of mundane things.
Now I want to know who’s behind the curtain though. Catwoman? Batgirl? SR-12?!
I know that “Curtains cannot hide you from my eyes” is supposed to be a reference to Supergirl’s x-ray vision, but I’m pretty sure that anyone would be able to spot those stylish purple shoes poking out from under that piece of hanging cloth.
You know, Super Dictionary, I might have mentioned that other definition of “current.” You know, the one that people use all the time. The one that means “now.”
But that’s just me. Green Lantern Hal Jordan is the embodiment of all things nuclear age, so it’s pretty appropriate to use him for connecting circuitry. Did he use a light construct? That would be pretty cool.
That’s a really interesting chair, Supergirl. In fact, I’m not sure that that’s a chair at all. I think that’s just a pile of pillows on the floor.
And don’t worry, Supergirl, in a few years, your hair will be so curly you won’t even know what to do with it, so you’ll start wearing one of those super 80s sports headbands.
(Supergirl Costume Tally: 7. I’ve decided her cape is just tucked behind her.)
With that we conclude the penultimate page of the letter C! Come back tomorrow for the final set of C words The Super Dictionary thought were important enough to include for the benefit of (American) children everywhere!
Check out under the cut for today’s unchopped page!
Don’t worry, Hawkman, it’s probably just Lois hiding some vegetables or people in your cellar for winter storage.
Woah! I never knew that drinking a cupful of something would make me invisible! I’ll have to give it a try next time I have a nice big cup of anything. Probably coffee. That looks like coffee to me.
That’s pretty stingy, Ted. I mean, a bunch of cupcakes, fine. Some people like cupcakes instead of big cakes.
But just one cupcake?
Not only is that kind of mean, but it’s a lot of work to figure out exactly how much of each ingredient you need to make a single cupcake. Are you trying to tell Teri you think she’s fat? I feel like this marriage is failing fast.
I will continue to assume that SR-12 is a robot, and the “milk” she’s drinking is actually whatever it is the androids in the Alien franchise are filled with.
I guess that’s one way to describe a cup. I have an awful lot of cups that don’t have handles, and are closer to cylinders than bowls.
Why does she have many cups on her spaceship? It’s just her living there. She should have like, three tops.
