Kucinich! I wondered what happened to him...
Robin: Prepare yourself for an eggspeditious defeat! Batman: Very apt, Robin. Robin: Oh. Glad you liked it. Althouse: I hate egg salad.Batman: Who asked you Catwoman?Althouse: I'm not Catwoman. I'm from Wisconsin.Robin: Who asked you Cheesewoman?(Batman, 1966)
Robin: "Ghoti" is "fish"? I thought that was a guinea gangster.Batman: See here. English phonetics. GH becomes F, as in "tough" or "laugh". O becomes I as in "women". TI becomes SH as in "ration" or the word "nation". Robin: Holy semantics, Batman. You never cease to amaze me! Batman: No time for compliments, Robin. We must thwart some criminals. To the BatmobileRobin: What is a criminal twat Batman?Batman: You are too young to understand Robin. No be a good ward and slide down the Bat Pole. And don’t mention it to the social worker.(Batman, An Egg Grows in Gotham. Season2 episode 13)
Clearly, I need to start buying the Batman DVDs.
A gargoyle grows in Brooklyn!Prof AA gargoyle grows in Brooklyn!TYHate to pettifog (actually, I love to), but G. B. Shaw is the creator of your "fish to ghoti" riff.BTW, how does one pronounce “Desbrosses” Street? Used to be a great Italian Restaurant there with its menu written in chalk on a blackboard.It seemed that there were always Gotti types there (pseudo-Gotti; faux Gotti?)
I know From Inwood, but that is a direct quote from the Batman archives, slightly adjusted for topicality.
