Food Fight Friday!

From All-Star Comics #34:

Now, I am the first to say that I am no great musician. When I was a kid, I wanted to play drums in marching band, but my stupid parents made me play my sister's hand-me-down clarinet instead (because a penchant for playing drums naturally translates into a knack for woodwind instruments). Their rationale was that I would either (a) take to playing the clarinet, in which case I would continue to play the clarinet or (b) I would quit. The important thing was, Adam would never annoy his parents by playing the drums. Which sucks, because had I played an instrument I enjoyed, band is a decent social network in your high school and college days.

But oh, how my life would have changed if I'd had my mitts on a Gahoon. Sure, I would have shredded the reed and made sounds like wildcats mating every time I tried to play a note (as was my experience with the clarinet), but I'm pretty sure I would have been the best Gahoon player in the band. Of course, I would have been the only Gahoon player in the band, but how cool would that have been? I mean, who knew what a Gahoon was actually supposed to sound like? I coulda been the freakin' Buddy Rich of Gahoons, I coulda!

I tried to research the Gahoon on the Google, but came up surprisingly empty. Anyone know where I can get my mitts on a Gahoon?

Gahoon. Gahoon, Gahoon, Gahoon.

Playas know:

The bitches get all up in your junk for a Baby Ruth. Play on!

From Daredevil v1 #237:

She moves like she wears perfume? What the heck does that mean? And she smells like she does her own taxes, keeping good records and attaching all appropriate documentation! I mean, what's the correlation here?

I know this isn't from the Frank Miller era, but am I asking too much here?

Some days, you just need to see Batman and Robin in a food fight:

Yeah! Thanks World's Finest v1 #5!

See you Monday!

Gahoon? That sounds more like some kind of ethnic slur than a musical instrument.

"Not a humming toy." Oh, no doubt, the gahoon is LIGHT YEARS more advanced than the kazoo...

Chicks that go nuts over a Baby Ruth? I think I've seen that on the Internet somewhere, much to my horror.

Does he count as a player if they only date him for the candy?

You call yourself a blogger ? Garrison Keillor would have gotten 3,000,000,000 words out of the whole band reminiscence thing.

Go stand in the corner.

Cop in panel 5: "I'm not so handy with a food-related pun
so I'll shoot this perp dead with my gun! Pretty good, huh Batman? Oh yeah, I forgot you don't like lethal force. Well, I'm a cop, so tough."

Seriously, I would think those guys would give up just so they don't have to hear any more "jokes". And who the hell fights with a wedge of cheese? Seriously.

A different advertisement for the Gahoon claimed “Sounds like a saxophone” and “Gives two full octaves of rich, clear tone like an E-flat Saxophone.” This is liable to have been a bit of an exaggeration (though one can do an awful lot with little more than a tube attached to a proper mouthpiece), but you would have been expected to sound like Raphael Ravenscroft.

I think people should be what they wanna be because then we can get bad memories, for example I fell so sad because I have to Order Viagra to feel stronger with my wife.
