A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
Did she sing a song of six-pence? A pocketful of rye?
It was probably just some weird robot song.
Or a song about coins. It would certainly explain why Jonna looks so irritated here.
…Whyyyy are you hiding a cache of money in the dunes, Batgirl?
Like why is that necessary? Are you hiding it from Bruce because you’re tired of him borrowing your stuff? I mean, he wouldn’t blink twice at asking you to lend him that paltry amount of money.
And I’m not quite sure what I think of that posture, Barbara. You’re not going to get anywhere digging like that.
(And again, I am poignantly reminded of how this book completely neglected to define the word “desert”, but found it necessary to define a desert related word.)
Fortunately it’s an easily solved one:
Yesterday? “Dig” was ages ago! Weeks ago!
But anyway. Let’s take a look:
Ah, he found an old shoe. That’s still really anti-climactic.
This is a fabulous start to the last page of “D”.
Hal, what is with you and ducks? First custom order duck toys, now a whole duck under your arm. I think we need to have a talk.
And what other ducks? Ollie clearly does not have any ducks because he’s way too busy running away from a mob.
In any case, GL’s about to get clotheslined.
(I’m picturing a Benny Hill-esque chase scene. I probably wouldn’t be, except for the duck.)
Did they somehow travel to the Sahara or something? With a handful of American cacti?
You know, I was going to try to link this to the word “desert”, but it turns out that The Super Dictionary didn’t define “desert”! Or “dessert”! How did that slip me by until now?!
I wonder where Jody and Tomahawk are going with weapons drawn anyway. And I didn’t think that American deserts got so…dune-y.
So ends the penultimate page of the letter “D”! What’s in store tomorrow for our final D related adventures? Tune in to find out!

Or at least King Creepy McCreeperson does.
I guess this entire definition is plausible and makes sense. Which is surprising, since usually these paragraph-length ones suffer from making less and less sense as they go on.
Teri Trapper: Responsible Adult.
I’m curious about what her doctor could give her to make a cold go away. Does this doctor have some kind of magical cure for the common cold? If so, he needs to share!
Remember kids — don’t do drugs! Unless you’re told to do drugs! Or something!
(An off-topic/on-topic aside: Oh my god, D.A.R.E.’s website looks like it’s from 1999. They should really work on that.)
Well no one may have drowned near you, Aquaman, but that doesn’t really keep it from happening other places.
Did I miss a cameo from Spider-Man? Your feet seem stuck to the ground/ocean with some webs.
And wow, what a grim word to include, Super Dictionary. Were you just really looking for some more things for Aquaman to do?
Also: kudos on your stellar disguise for Mera. Making her blonde and giving her flippers will totally make her look like not-Mera. The crown and the earrings don’t give it away at all. It’s almost as good as your disguise for Garth as Aquaman’s “young friend.”
We all know who drove Batman’s car off a bridge, Super Dictionary. It took up a third of the page.
You’re just not trying anymore. If you were trying to begin with.
Thanks for making Robin look extra bad. Pointing out that he did a bad thing not even a full page after he did the bad thing. That’s just mean.
And so as The Super Dictionary shames Robin for his terrible mistake, we conclude today’s page. Come back tomorrow for what will hopefully prove to be a greater variety of words, since I’m not sure that having “drive,” “driven,” and “drove” all on the same page really counts as three different definitions.
