Batman Rolls His Golf Balls of Justice!

And now, courtesy of Batman #182, another installment of...

Stuff that Only Happens in Gotham City (tm!)

Batman fights a group of guys who dress up like owls wearing business suits by rolling a giant golf ball at them while they respond with a giant prop swordfish.

This has been... Stuff that Only Happens in Gotham City! (tm!)

Hey!  Random Slap! (tm!)

I like Robin, but in the Silver Age there were many moments where I wanted to see him slapped.  And I'm obviously not the only one who felt that way.

Speaking of which... check out the official moment that the original Robin lost his street cred:

That's correct... Robin started fighting crime with Tinkling Gold Skate Charms on his belt.

This was not a proud moment for sidekicks.  I've forgiven a lot of things Robin said and did as relics of an era gone by, but this is just sad.  Turn in your testicles, Robin... you won't be needing them.

See you tomorrow!

I remember that issue, "Boy wonder falls in love" or something like that. So much cringe.
