Hey, it’s a Leap Comic! Feb 29… I thought it had been 8 years since the last Leap Day, but I must be regressing to past lives (the sexy explanation) or getting senile (Occam’s Razor). There was a Leap Day in 2000.
I’m a little worried that I am breaking my rule about topical jokes with this one, but since nobody’s really been talking about David Blaine for a few months, I figure this joke is pre-dated…like a pair of pre-washed jeans. I’m sure he’ll resurface again, maybe to be fried in margarine under a giant magnifying glass, or some other trick he stole from the old Batman show.
Seriously, they did that one. They were tied up in a huge skillet, slathered in margarine. Robin said, “Holy oleo, Batman!” And Catwoman said, “I didn’t know you could yodel, Boy Wonder.” They don’t write them like that any more.
