From Batman #129:
I think every story ought to have a Maharajah's outfit in it. Know why? Because it's fun to say "Maharajah."
Ruh-roh! It's another over-sized object! Apparently at Gotham City University, they never taught their engineers the difference between "inches" and "feet" as units of measurement:
On the one hand, I'm disgusted that we've resorted to yet another gargantuan object as a plot device. On the other hand, I find it hilarious that someone felt the need to label it "Display Model." Well, it's a good thing someone said something, because I was fixin' to start doin' some quiltin' on that 6 story tall sewin' machine!
You know, if there's a needle the size of a whaling harpoon hanging from machinery of any kind, you might want to consider going around it, as opposed to swinging right under it. You're just asking for trouble.
I have no idea what Batman just said there. I can't tell if it's some sewing reference, or if it's some 1950's thing, or a combination thereof. I just know that he made some kind of joke, and I don't know what it was. It is neat the way he got their hats to just kind of float in the air like that, so that's something.
See you Monday!
