Was there ever a time at which a man fighting crime dressed as a bat wouldn’t seem absurd?
Nobody laughed at him in 1939, not because people didn’t think he was insane, but because he was shooting people back then.

Further trashing the popular misconception that people can’t read in dreams…
Last night I was taking an entrance exam for… something… with a truly wide range of questions. I remember there was a series of math questions, each of which had to be answered using numbers from 1 through 12, but no number could be used twice. The third question asked me to list a valid combination of sin, cosine and tangent, and I’d already used 1 and 6. I only had to write down the tangent. I believe this is unanswerable (though I did hazard a guess)
I also had to translate a long German sentence. Which was a bit of a problem since I don’t speak German.
I remember two other questions, and I’m curious how y’all would answer them:
Name something that might be true of a very famous person’s funeral but not a regular person’s.
Name something that Batman would worry about that nobody else would.

The gag would have worked just as well with the better-known Human Torch, right? Not that I’m criticizing, but just saying…

Okay, wait, maybe I sort of kind of get part of this: are they actually peeing in the snow? And Green Lantern’s is green for some reason, but the other guys’ are… white??
No, the more I think I get it, the more confused I am.

These were back-to-back on my Chronicle page this past Friday. The second one (Speed Bump) is a definite CIDU, though: “Superman flavor”??

I was reminded of just how old I am when I met Shortpacked’s David Willis at the Wild Pig Comic Con in Springfield, NJ Saturday afternoon. My wife came along for a single reason: to tell David she’s a great fan of the Batman gags he writes into his strip. He drew her this
