Random Acts of Haney

I was working all day today, so this entry in Bob Haney Rules Week will be random...and awesome!

We'll start with a bone-chilling panel depicting Batman's messed-up sense of humour:

"Am I right, boys? Ha ha!"


And here we have a triple whammy of greatness. Batman makes a crazy comparison, calls Robin "kiddoo" (rhymes with Ski-doo) and Robin yells "God!" (Even funnier if read with a Napoleon Dynamite voice).

Next we have Batman a little off his game:

Look out, Bruce! There is a large and obvious bunch of men in your room! Just turn your head slightly! Use your peripheral vision! Stop reading that man's diary!

Aw, what am I worried about? It's not like they could really trap Batman with a stupid net!

Oh. least they took his shirt off and tied him up. Diabolical!

"However did you see through my cunning disguise, Clark? Was it the fact that I haven't altered my appearance in any way?"

"No, Bruce, old friend. I was just doing my usual rounds of x-raying the shirt of every man I see when I noticed the Bat symbol on your rugged chest."

In case you aren't convinced that Haney is the king of convoluted plot lines, this next panel more or less sums up the story the last four panels were from:

"Check!" That's very cute.

And finally...I love it when they finish each other's sentences:

...Actually, Superman, I was going to say "...or the biggest *zero*."

I'm experimenting with rhyming banter.

Johnathan said...

Wait... can Batman *see* Superman's x-ray vision in that panel? Are they sharing superpowers now?

rachelle said...

I think the x-rays are tickling him.

Captain Infinity said...

Come on, Bruce, even Jimmy freaking Olsen has better disguises than that. At least Jimmy would put on a fake mustache or wacky hat.

SallyP said...

I must prepare things!" What KIND of things? That's a rather awkward way of phrasing it.

Also, Batman finds the idea of some old man dying at his wife's grave ironic...and HILARIOUS! He's very odd.

I'm going to do my best to introduce "kiddoo" into my everyday vocabulary.
