After the last two days of Uranus jokes, let's give ourselves some mental floss with the intellectual pursuits of Batman:
From Batman #3:
Yeah, let's hook him up to a car battery and see if that doesn't get a little cooperation. Failing that, I suggest we repeatedly kick him in the balls.
What kind of idiot lives in Gotham City, anyway? Look, a huge bat with a propeller that makes a loud, motorized sound! Those folks were a pretty easy sale back in the day.
Aaaaaand moving on to Batman #4:
Yes, Robin, I realize we are in combat for our lives against armed and bloodthirsty criminals, but allow me to remind you that WE DO NOT USE LETHAL FORCE! WE USE NO LETHAL FORCE OF ANY KIND! THESE MEN NEED NOT SHOW ANY RESTRAINT FOR FEAR OF THEIR LIVES! THEY CAN CHARGE US WITH EVERYTHING THEY HAVE AND WE WILL DO THEM NO PERMANENT HARM! Say, old chum, do they seem to be getting a bit more aggressive?
Say, Bruce, if you could break the fourth wall and get all preachy on our readership, what would you say?
.... and eat your vegetables and say your prayers. But feel free to take a relaxing, satisfying smoke at the end of your day!
Have a safe weekend! I'll see you Monday!
