A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
I bet it was Hal’s fault.
SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU USE YOUR POWERS FOR LAZINESS HAL? YOU MAKE OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES A MISERY.
But seriously, this is the vaguest possible definition for “electricity.” Or “electric” for that matter. For all we know, “electricity” is another word for “magic.”
So concludes another page of The Super Dictionary. Hopefully Conjura will be okay and use her
Zatanna magic powers to turn the electricity back on in no time. Join us next time for more adventures from The Super Dictionary!
Check out under the cut for today’s unchopped page!
Hal, why are you using a giant hand construct to finely tune a clock that you could easily mess with with your actual hands? That can’t possibly be easier than doing it with your actual hands.
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.)
Apparently Hal goes all the way to Oa every day to recharge his ring on a really strange looking off-model central power battery!
Also I think you’re fibbing a little, GL. There have definitely been numerous occasions when you’ve forgotten to charge your ring and it’s almost gotten you killed. It’s kind of your shtick.
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.
What’s in the boooox?!
Well what did he do with the box that is made of copper?
Did he put his custom order singing duck toy in it?
Maybe he’ll give it to Lois. She seems to like boxes.
Is this singing duck like those terrifying singing fish? Does it just suddenly come to life when people walk by, scaring the crap out of them and singing some punny song?
Oh wait! I know. Batman must be this “friend” Hal is meeting. After all, we know that Batman was very anxious to blow Robin off so that he wouldn’t miss any acts of the play. And since he’s going as Green Lantern, it can’t be any of his normal friends. And according to this book, Carol Ferris doesn’t exist.
I bet Hal was late and Bruce had to miss part of the first act anyway. Because that’s how Hal rolls.
And with that, my friends, we conclude not just today’s jam-packed page of definitions, but also the letter B! (On a nice even 30 pages, no less.) Join us tomorrow for another edition of The Super Dictionary and we’ll find out what kind of shenanigans the letter C has in store for us!
Check out under the cut for the last whole page of B!
Look up bring? Okay!
Oh, I get it. Krytpo was on his way to not-help Hal by bringing him a giant dinosaur bone! To his credit, he’s a dog, and dogs don’t really understand the word “rope.”
Man, Hal’s day just keeps getting better and better. First Barry brings him a broken ladder, then Krypto shows up with a bone like that’s supposed to make it all better. He must think he’s just surrounded by idiots.
But I guess Hal always thinks he’s surrounded by idiots. Because that’s what makes Hal Hal.
