    Yeah, I get puzzled when people speak of getting a baby put down, meaning for a sleep.

    That “put the baby down” gag always confused me in “Ghostbusters II” as well. I had never really heard it before then.

    [Distracted by tag line] What’s with the JFK quote, Bill?

    For those of us who don’t know the speech the tag line comes from: “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

    To complete Bad Seed’s explanation at #4, see http://comicsidontunderstand.com/wordpress/2012/05/14/totem/ for a series of substitutions for “moon”.

    I’ve been to churches of preachers who got carried away with a monotone until everyone was asleep and then do the Southern Baptist yell to rouse everyone with a start. Usually there would be a handful of faked “Amen!”s at that point.

    Yeah! And it was 50 years ago this year…

    Which tag line are y’all seeing?

  9. Lost in A**2 May 27th 2012 at 12:46 pm 9

    It’s right under “Comics I Don’t Understand,” in the banner.

    “Put it down!”
    “OK. Horse, my 2-year-old kid could make a better sculpture.”

    Ahhh… I was looking for the tags under the comics. Thanks!

    Ha! Glad you pointed it out, Keera. Nice callback, Bill.
