Let's end this week with a look at the classic Batman #48:
Batman, you're Bruce Wayne!
That's right! . . . I mean, nonsense! What makes you say that?
That's a cross-section of Wayne Manor, a local landmark everyone who lives in the area knows about!
No it isn't! No it isn't!
But the house right there is clearly labelled, "WAYNE HOME."
Hmmmm.... I wondered if this seminar wasn't a bad idea. Now I'll have to have you all killed. Oh, well... Live and learn!
Speaking of which, I had criticized Bats yesterday for his strategically-questionable choice of putting a big pigeon or something on the top of a diving helmet. In this issue, we see him use surprisingly rational strategy:
Well... That's That. (tm!)
Why he wouldn't use that method every time is way beyond our abilities to understand. I guess when you pay a lot of money for a whole crime lab, you don't want to admit you'd be more effective with a dog you could rescue for next to nothing from the local animal shelter. Then you look like kind of a chump.
See you Monday!
