A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
Uh oh, I hope that water from the stream was clean!
Maybe Silver Age Lois is hanging out inside.
Then why’d you drag your date here, Wilson?
You look really pleased with yourself. And your date looks ecstatic at seeing this creepy old Victorian house.
Or are you showing her your childhood home and trying to subtly explain that you didn’t have a very happy childhood? If that’s the case I think it’s going over her head, because she looks ready to ask you to take her inside.
This is obvious from the noun they chose to help define this adjective:
Yes, that toy truck looks absolutely lethal. I shudder to think the child who would play with it.
What, are there razers coming out the bottom? Does it spray poison gas? Is it an oil tanker full of actual oil?
I don’t understand.
I’m hip to the jive, Wilson! I know what you’re all about!
That sounds an awful lot like a euphemism for heroin.
And I was so proud of you, Wilson. And now I find out you’re cooking smack. I’m very disappointed.
Forebears of the illustrious “Bill and Ted.”
Oh I see, clarifying the previous definition. I wonder if they were always in the same class at the same time.
I know it probably wasn’t entirely intentional, but really Super Dictionary? Taking two of the made-up-for-this-book black people in this book and using them for the word “class?”
I guess they are some of the few characters who only have one identity. And we know how The Super Dictionary feels about using secret identity names in this book. It doesn’t believe in them.
Well. Fair enough, Super Dictionary. I guess Wilson does work in a city, since he’s in Metropolis. And I guess a lot of people do live in cities. And I guess there are a lot of jobs in cities.
And with that fairly accurate definition, we conclude today’s page of The Super Dictionary. Come back tomorrow for more definitions from your favorite heroes!

Fighting for chicken rights, now, Wilson?
Interesting that Wilson apparently works at a table and not a desk, though. Maybe he was at his lunch. In the newsroom.
This caterpillar sounds important, though. Like maybe it’s an honored guest! Though I’m still not quite sure what a caterpillar is from the way this definition tells it. A long, thin, furry animal, huh? Not even Google Image Search knows what to make of that. Are you sure that you don’t want to clarify that caterpillars become butterflies and moths?
I guess not.
And so we conclude today’s page of pranks and ill-defined mystery animals. But come back tomorrow for what I’m sure will be more fun loving words in The Super Dictionary brought to you by the letter “C!”
