    maybe she should paint her plane… i understand that she changes out of her street cloths into that costume in her transparent plane … much to the pleasure of the guys in the control tower.

    Pretty sure this is one of those I don’t get. I’m guessing the “casting” or “costing” on the cooler has something to do with it. Help me out, SusanSunshine.

    @Dogsniff

    Wonder Woman’s plane is invisible. If she paints it, it won’t be.
    .
    I think the object here is to poke fun at the stereotype of a woman buying something just because it’s on sale.

    And you’re telling me that men don’t?

    No. We’re not mentioned as a sex in this comic though.

    Wondie’s invisible jet even has its own wiki page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invisible_plane

    Aw, Dogsniff…. your faith is so touching…. thanks…

    But all I know, too, is that WW’s plane is invisible…

    though not for long, if she can’t resist the temptation of 80% off jet paint.


    I don’t think the strip is about “women” just because she’s female….
    It would work with a man if he depended on an invisible plane…. or boat or whatever…

    In fact, Brewster Rockitt would be first in line with a cartful.

    Reminds me of when cartoon ghosts get caught in laundry or drapes….

    No, no. It’s that black stuff that Tim Tebow puts under his eyes.

    Forgot to say…. I magnified this a lot
    and the only thing I can figure out for “costing”, “casting” or whatever is that it might say “Cost Inc.” as a sort of play on Costco….

    But Costco doesn’t have handbaskets, or gallons of paint,
    it has Volkswagen chassis on wheels, and drums of mayonnaise.

    @Alexikakos & SusanSunshine: Thanks you guys. Sometimes I have trouble with Wheel of Fortune even after they turn all the letters around. This one was pretty easy to get, wasn’t it? Anyone else would feel bad.

    And after working for Chevrolet for 30+ years, I can tell you a Geo Metro is, in reality, a “Suzuki Swift”.

    I always loved me some Linda Carter. This clip is one of my favorites

    Little Known Fact: ALL planes are invisible until they cover them with something. It’s TRUE!

    You can never have too much mayo. I like it when the pallet o toilet paper comes on sale.

    Jimmy Carter told everyone about her invisible plane five years before it was in the comic book.
