    Holy crap, that Batman one was hilarious. And then I read the extra panel… *rofl*

    (Should I have said “Holy crap, Batman!”?)

    The Duplex one is a rather tired joke, though. It’s pretty much the “global warming” gag of video games.

    could someone explain the one with the bull?

    Good batch this week!

    @Pirk

    I think it is a take off on a public service announcement where if you see some crime or something wrong on the subway, speaking up, rather than let someone get gored.

    The last one about GPSes isn’t a joke; it’s the sad truth. I live in a country with some of the worst roads in Europe (for various reasons) and foreign truckers are constantly getting stuck on some backwood single lane road with hairpin turns because the GPS says it’s the shorter route.

    @Pirk, there’s the psychological phenomenon where personal responsibility is pulverized in a crowd; everybody expects somebody else to speak up - and, according to the joke, to the point that not even a bull lose in the subway would get a sound out of anyone.

    Loose. Sheesh. I’m friing my prewfreeder.

    “If you see something, say something” is an official public slogan in the New York City mass-transit system, mainly focused on combatting terrorism through anonymous citizen complaints. This must be the downtown 1 train heading through the financial district, as people are witnessing a poor soul with a short position being gored by an unexpected bull-market.

    So the something we’re expected to say is, “Geez, that gotta hurt!”? Works for me.

    “4,286 Robins” - How does a grown man find so many impressionable young boys who will dress up in colorful clothes and engage in risky behavior - wait, is Bruce Wayne recruiting from Catholic schools? Is that why Robin is always saying “Holy (blank), Batman”?

    and Vegetarian Rednecks got an actual chuckle. I can just hear Jeff Foxworthy in my head - “If you keep a shovel and rake in the gunrack of yer pick-up truck . . .”

    I’m with Pirk (2) on the bull goring, it’s at best a CIDU, but really just an unfunny Eewww.

    @ Keera (5) - According to a report in the German news about a week ago, a Japanese tourist followed his GPS onto a cross-country ski trail. It might have been a driveable road in summer, but GPS doesn’t do “seasons”.

  12. Morris Keesan Feb 28th 2010 at 10:34 am 12

    … and I’ve seen lots of “off-beat news” stories about people obeying the GPS voices in their heads, and driving off of piers into the water, around “road closed” signs onto unsafe bridges, etc. Off a cliff is only a small exaggeration, if any.

    Classic .sig:

    “Hi, I’m Robin. That’s my buddy Batman hiding in the shadows in his dark cape. Me, I prefer flashier colors. I’m acting as bait so that the bad guys will come out; then Batman and I will take them in. By the way, I’m the third or fourth Robin… he never told me what happened to the others…”
    (sound of gunfire)
    Batman: “He was a good soldier. He honored me.”
    –Paul A. Estin et al.

    I live in Philadelphia and only ever encountered those PSA’s in NYC so I figured it was peculiar to them because of 9/11. However, I was recently in Hawaii and they have them EVERYWHERE. Announcements on the bus; announcements at the airport; posters in hotels and stores; and, I kids you not, it seems to be the official sign off for the news programs (I didn’t listen to every program to the end, but the ones I did had it). I was wondering if Hawaii was especially prone to terrorist attacks, but then I remembered that day that lives in infamy, so maybe their paranoia is justified. Even so, that’s a long time to be on high alert, so it must be something else. Any Hawaiians out there that can enlighten me?

    @Keera You know, come to think of it, they never did specify WHAT we’re supposed to say when we see something….

  16. Dan Feb 28th 2010 at 12:43 pm 16

    DC has a similar PSA: “See it, say it.” Which invariably reminds me of “Say it, don’t spray it.”

    Batman’s real identity is at last revealed! He’s a Druuge starship captain…

    @Pirk It’s really another Global Warning / Gore joke.

    The middle Batman panel doesn’t make sense to me. Sure, Batman can eat Robin and maybe live another week or so, but he’ll still need to find a way out. At least in the other two panels sacrificing Robin make sense.

  20. Jeff S. Mar 1st 2010 at 12:03 pm 20

    The energy gained from eating Robin was enough to make him last until he found a way out.

  21. Victor M. Mar 1st 2010 at 02:49 pm 21

    It should have been, “Blast! We’ll starve to death before the time-lock on this vault opens.”

    Lio is becoming one of my favorites. So different from all the old stale strips.
