Ribaldry with Robin!


I believe the first step is rescuing him from circus life.


Whoa. Robin likes it rough. Well, you know how circus folk are.


I'm guessing the Big Hunk wrote that one.


Oh, I don't know, Robin; Batman might be less upset than you think.
Particularly if you share with him the video.


Robin is rough trade, people.


And finally, the panel that made Baby Devin Greyson cry...

Robin's so tough, in fact, that when he plays drop the soap, he does want you to use the soap!

I spent my graduate student career making dirty jokes about literature, and being glared at. That's why I feel like I've come home when I log onto your blog.

I hear you, Dark. In junior high I had an English teacher who thought it would help the students to understand the material better, to have us read the dialogue in the novels out loud in class. When doing this with Great Expectations, she began to question the wisdom of her plan when Miss Havisham said to the young Pip, "Do you know what I touch...here?"

totaltoyz, I love Miss Havisham! I guess your teacher didn't notice all the stuff about a 13 yr old boy hiding a long piece of buttered bread down his pants -- working to avoid letting the lump show around his sister and brother-in law -- and then sneaking to a graveyard to hand it over to a convict. All in the first two chapters!

that panel with the soap is ridiculous, yet pretty much the reason i love comics.

in a completely unrelated note: where is that Dove quote from the poll from? i'm mildly obsessed with the character, and haven't come across the issue.

thanks--

The Dove quote is from Countdown to Mystery, where she is possessed by Eclipso.

Who was the artist on these panels? Whoever he was, he'd have one of those great "exclusive contracts" now.

Also, Scipio, how did you feel about Ian Churchill's hairy-legged Robin flashbacks in the Titans East special?

Scipio said...

Didn't read it... .

And oh, the double entendres are flying. It's mornings like this when I realize just how much I love comics.

Scipio said...

Actually, the Flying Double Entendres replaced the Graysons at Haley's Circus... .

*groan*

It's funny because you made it look like Robin is gay.

How are you ever going to top this for wit and sophistication? Fart jokes?

You should have your poetic license revoked, for that one.

One man's sophomoric vulgarity is another man's Noel Coward. Look at Mel Brooks: he spent the 70s writing fart jokes and appealing to the lowest common denominator, and because they made money he was considered a genius. Then a couple of them bombed, and the poor guy couldn't get arrested in Hollywood for ten years. Then he took an old movie, added some songs to it, and put it on Broadway, and all of a sudden he was a genius again. Now he's done the same thing with Young Frankenstein. Hopefully he'll pass away before he gets around to Spaceballs: The Musical.

xfiyjlp;

I'll simply look to your daily comic book blog for inspiration...

To be fair, Robin does make it easy...
