A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
You should never clean someone’s eardrum. You could break it or something. You should maybe have your ear canals cleaned once in a while, but never the eardrum.
A more important question: Why is this word important enough to include in The Super Dictionary to begin with?
Why? And where? What were you doing that you decided to help a girl drag a log out of the forest?
I DON’T UNDERSTAND.
Super Dictionary, don’t you think a more super thing for Comet to be doing might have been to be dragging the girl out of a fire or something? All we’ve seen Comet do in this book is be a butt. This might be the first nice thing he’s done.
Since when can Krypto actually speak? And since when does he eat at the table? But I guess if he’s going to be fancy and ask Comet to “dine” with him, he needs to be fancy and eat at the table.
I thought he and Comet spoke through telepathy.
I do really like Comet’s “Bitch please” expression, and his cape wafting in the wind.
Now that I have the dulcet tones of Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney stuck in your head (whether you like it or not!), I have to admit that I find no fault with this definition or its example.
Krypto and Comet, you guys are jerks, stealing SR-12’s pies. She worked hard baking those pies all for herself!
And I can tell you’re stealing them, too, Krypto. You’re not a very good sneak and you’re looking pretty devious right now.
What?! No he wasn’t!
This is a blatant lie!
Comet was never a baby horse!
Comet is an ancient centaur accidentally dicked over by Circe and turned into a horse! (And then to try to make it up to him she gave him super powers? Oh Golden Age.) I don’t know what baby centaurs are called, and it’s probably “colt,” but he was still never a baby horse, and he probably never hung out with other baby horses.
Centaurs traditionally view horses as breeders and/or slaves. Not friends.
I feel like I really missed out on the educational value this book provided.
If Comet didn’t want us to hear him, he’d just fly. He’s just making a lot of extra noise to make sure he doesn’t scare us.
For once he’s being very considerate!
Running around, bothering cows.
It’s not like he doesn’t know that he’s bothering them. He is completely sentient.
[Edit: Oops, I wasn’t paying enough attention. If you read this as a confused Krypto description, sorry! D: ]
I’m sad that this isn’t accompanied by a picture of Comet flying over all those things.
“Tall trees” might be a bit of an understatement though. And high mountains. The redwoods are kind of unfathomably huge.
Here ends another page of The Super Dictionary, on a note of complete and utter American-ness. But isn’t that the best way to start out on the letter “C?”
Join us again for another page, coming to you later today because I fell asleep before I could finish this one yesterday. (This broken queue thing is killing my productivity on this blog. :/ )
Check out under the cut for the full glory of the first page of “C!”
