Think Batman will ever be like this again?

I gotta say, "HOLY STRETCH MARKS!" has now entered my vocabularly.

Look out, world.  I just hope I don't run into any pregnant women between now and the time I'll forget about that phrase.

Come on, admit it.  Some small part of you wants Dick back as Robin and randomly shouting things like, "HOLY HIGHER RENT DISTRICT!"

Has there ever been (in print at least) an instance where Robin said 'Holy shit, Batman!' because I am not aware of one, but have always thought it was a missed opportunity at comedy gold.

Holy Mary Mother of God!

No manifesto this week. I can't even raise comment on newly commissioned art after the holiday lull.

It really is a shame that Dick doesn't run around doing this anymore. It would be hilarious if he did it as Nightwing, and even MORE hilarious if he did it as Batman.

Somehow, I just can't see Damian doing this.

I always had a theory that Dick made a game out of how many versions of "holy" he could come up with and Bruce never picked up on it. I'd imagine him using it to annoy Jason with. Telling him it was his duty as Robin to say it and after Jason accidently turned it into a curse the phrase was retired.

I couldn't help listen to the actor (Burt Ward?) and imaging him trying to say all of these with a straight face.

i have a book about the tv show that lists all the "Holy...Batman"'s listed, for example: Holy priceless collection of Etruscan snoods, Batman!
