Flo flubbed her grammar. “Anymore” is usually used with a negative, for something that used to be but no longer is. So her sentence should have been “Time doesn’t move so fast anymore, does it?”
You never heard of the Bat-Automatic Costume Changer? I think it was an invention of necessity - got us into the action quickly, just like Star Trek’s transporter. But after all, none of the wild technology of the Batman series was ever explained. And the comics never explained how most of the heroes wore their costumes, boots and all, under their street clothes. Just gotta be willing to suspend your disbelief! But my favorite believable piece of Bat-tech was the Batmobile’s anti-theft device. It was a small hinged panel labeled “Anti-Theft Device.” Flip the panel down to expose a small push-button, and the words “Start Button” on the other side of the panel. So a potential thief would push the button, thinking it would start the car, and instead it set off fireworks and smoke to scare off the crook.
Agnes’ acceptance of Trout’s “ample research” reminds of Calvin writing his school report on bats. Bats, he decided (totally out of his own head), were bugs, and that was it for the research.
Love it! Hopefully this dream will make her appreciate great literature!
It means you’re looking at a photo by Eadweard Muybridge.
Actually it reminds me a little of Oobleck.
Super gum? From the planet Krypton?
Pam should know better than to tell Brewster something like that (actually she should know better than to tell him to do anything, unsupervised). It’s like talking to Amelia Bedelia.
He’s all hands . . . er, I mean “tentacles.”
Trump and the Republicans who back him have turned politics into a whole new ballgame, so seeing that filter through to cartoons is no surprise. Keep it up, Mr. Stahler, you’re saying what needs to be said. As for the kid in the cartoon, someone just needs to explain to him that you should have kindness and respect in order to be President; you just don’t need it if you’re planning to grow up to be Donald Trump.
