The Love Wanga

It is really easy to make fun of the way the meanings of words have changed. And sometimes that easy fun is irresistable:

via Golden Age Comic Book Stories


  1. LOL! I love it! I wonder if that's related to the famous Batman/Joker "boner" episode The Joker's Comedy of Errors.

    Take a look at Chief Gordon telling Batman "I'm worried sick about the boner he's preparing for YOU!" and try not to crack up.

  2. Of course, my favorite moment comes when Robin slips on something slick from the Trojan....Horse. ;-)

  3. People say it was a more innocent time. But sometimes, that just meant the writers knew they could get away with something the kids would miss.

    Kind of like Hammett using "gunsel" as if it meant "gunman."
