At least I learned what the DC on DC comics means and what they might have been worth if I had saves mine.
Bony on the Isle of St. Helena
And the Batman one isn’t even worth it because I’d just use it for bedding for my rat snake Jewel.
Take care and may God bless.
Well done to those rabbits.
Next time you want a bunny hunt Napoleon, let’s not get them from Monty Python, ok?
Use the Holy Hand Grenade !
Attacked right into the stewpot.
A fruit is anything that can have seeds. It doesn’t matter if it’s one, many or even seedless + berries are always fruits.
Clearly, these were English Hares… known to be aggressive…
Only the company is now called DC Comics, the series is still Detective Comics, and Batman has been the Star, mostly, since his first appearance.
The orange is not a berry and it’s not single-seeded… is it meat?
Somebody needs to CGI that scene. 3000 attacking bunnies.
The Little Corporal learned the hard way what I learned from Dean Martin many years ago…“You’re nobody ’til some BUNNY loves you”!
BTW, two of the rabbit’s descendants appear in today’s (08/15) “Rose Is Rose”!
I had the first Fantastic Four Issue, my mother threw all my comics away when I was in the service. I would tell her the worth of first issues from time to time.
Led by Crusader Rabbit, no doubt.
What makes a fruit a fruit — Botanically speaking, a fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems.So it doesn’t matter that an avocado is a single seeded berry.
I was surprised to learn on Jeopardy the other night that bananas are considered to be berries because of their “seeds”.
Napoleon, just look at the BONES!
“These ain’t no ordinary rabbits!”
Bunnies attacked President Carter once, didn’t they? Dangerous critters!
I think it should read “a copy of issue #27” since there wasn’t just 1.
Avocados are far more fascinating than just that.
Avocado trees used to reproduce and spread by animals eating their fruit and pooping out the seeds (as with most plants). The thing is… there hasn’t been an animal that can eat a full avocado since the days of the Woolly Mammoth. Back then the Giant Ground Sloth would eat an avocado whole, and pass the seed on. When the Giant Sloth went extinct, the avocado should have gone extinct along with it.
The only thing they can figure is that some ancient pre-Aztec civilization managed to cultivate it and keep it living.
We’re the bunnies armed…..I hope they were
HA! Napoleon unleashed the night of the lepus!
I wonder if that is where the sarcastic phrase…“Getting kicked to death by a rabbit”, originated.
Detective Comics, eh? Did they ever feature any detective comics? Why didn’t they call it Superhero Comics?
How’dya like that. I gotta steal food to fill my poor hungry tummy and some people buy comics for 1,075,500 US Dollars.
Did he call his very own bunny rabbits as George?
So that’s where Monty Python got the idea for the rabbit scene in “Monty Python and The Holy Grail”! “Death awaits you with pointy teeth!!”
attack of the killer bunnies…attack of the killer bunnies…(sung to the tune of ‘attack of the killer tomatoes’)
Aaagh… there are TWO definitions here for fruit…..
Botanical and culinary.
People talking about plant life stages use the botanical definition…
In daily life, we use the looser, culinary definition.
Plants have two phases, active growth, called vegetating… when new leaves, flowers and roots are forming
And fruiting, when growth stops, and the plant gets ready to reproduce.
On many, the stages can coexist in different parts of the plant.
Any growing, or vegetating, part of the plant is called a vegetable…
Leaves, roots, stems, etc…. lettuce, celery, carrots.
Usually you have to cut it off…. it doesn’t “ripen” and fall off.
(That’s why it’s backwards when we call someone paralyzed a “vegetable.”)
When a plant, or part of it, rests after growth, its ovaries swell….
Most develop seeds that can make new plants… though we eat many of them immature, like green beans.
So…. anything developed from an ovary is the product of the fruiting stage, & BOTANICALLY, a fruit or a seed.
Fruits may be, botanically, berries, drupes, pomes, or other categories we seldom mention.
In CULINARY terms, we group things by taste and usage, not their botanical category.
If botanical fruits are not sweet, & we use them in savory preparations…
They are called VEGETABLES.
Many “berries” ate not botanically berries; and we use many botanical berries as vegetables. No need to make a big fuss over 1 or 2 in particular.
Avocados are difficult because some cultures treat them like fruit, but in the US they’re vegetables.
The specious argument that tomatoes are fruit was all about a fruit tax a customs agent tried to levy on some in the 1860s….
It was decided back THEN, in court, that TOMATOES were culinary VEGETABLES…
But we didn’t have the internet, so the silly myth persists.
Actually, Napoleon loved to hunt, so, one of his subordinates went about setting up a rabbit hunt. However, in order to make sure his boss was successful, the subordinate went around the country side, and had a couple thousand domesticated bunnies held in cages, and released, when Napoleon arrived for the hunt.
Because the bunnies had not been fed in a couple of days, they immediately turned to the first person they saw, expecting to get fed…. Good old “Nappy!” Suffice to say, the hunt was a total disaster, and the subordinate who arranged it, probably avoided being executed, by a “hare.” :)
“Pow!” “Wham!” I am SO sick of that ignorant 1960s “camp” Batman stuff! You’d think that after 50 years and a slew of serious detective thrillers about Batman in the movies that reporters would have moved beyond that! Plus, Bob Kane’s and Bill Finger’s 1939 publication of Batman had none of that silly stuff.
