A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
Clearly Penguin has had enough of Robin’s dancing.
Dick looks pretty perturbed about it. He is a showman. And showmen don’t like being told to stop.
I’m also snickering at the coloring error on Robin’s gloves. How hard is it to remember which parts are red, yellow, and green? Apparently quite.
I feel like the next sentence should be “They think he’s smelly.”
(Don’t be a smelly person, kids, doctors won’t want to see you and you’ll DIE.)
(But which crown do I mean?)
Whoa there, Super Dictionary! Are you advocating murdering the Penguin? That’s pretty harsh. And totally against Batman’s principles.
Seriously, that boxing glove must have just been perching on top of his umbrella, and the only thing hidden was that…spring? I guess that’s what that’s supposed to be.
And Penguin, you are being so presumptuous calling yourself “crazier than Batman.” He never said he was crazy. (He totally is.) Also, Penguin is arguably the sanest of Batman’s rogues gallery. He manages to run an above-board nightclub while also running a gang. He just happens to enjoy bird themed things.
You though, Joker, are just totally creepy looking. And you are definitely the craziest.
What is going on here? I mean, that’s quite the crotch shot, but gangsta-Penguin doesn’t seem to give a fuck.
“Yo dawg, put that away. I don’t wanna see yo’ scaly panties more than I have to!”
Maybe Robin’s doing a wacky dance to try to keep him at bay?
I guess you probably didn’t die from that fall, but it’s not a good thing to fall off a cliff, Oswald. Did Joker cut your line or something? Is Batman going to swoop down and save you like a damsel in distress?
There’s a lot I want to know about this vignette, and I know The Super Dictionary will provide no answers.
It’s so nice of him, putting the gold in carts for those guys! Oh. OH. Unless he’s stealing the gold. Then that’s not so nice of him.
Once again, Penguin is doing his own menial labor. I’m a little surprised.
Well you sure can’t like that.
You need to move forward to catch somebody.
But aside from that, why is Penguin chasing Batman? Shouldn’t that be the other way around?
(You didn’t tell us to look up “cannot!” You must be running on the assumption that we are reading this dictionary word for word. Well you’re right. But that’s not the point.)
I mean, there are a lot of improbable things that take place in this book. In fact, I’d say that the majority of things in this book are, by a wide margin, things that I have trouble seeing characters actually doing.
But for some reason, this one is just extra improbable in my mind.
Because Penguin has a legion of henchmen to do such menial tasks as carry mysterious bundles of sticks from point A to point B.
