Your Worst Nightmare


I was on Pinterest and I saw a Robin comic that I thought was funny so I saved it to my Happy Thoughts board and that's why I wrote a week of Batman&Robin comics.
I kinda thought this up also thinking of the part at the end of Mulan when Mushu scares the guys manning the fireworks by saying he's their worst nightmare and wearing a cape like Batman (and Cri-Kee was Robin).

Text:
T: Who are you?
B: Your worst nightmare.
T: True, I have always feared bats.
R: Holy coincidence, so did he!

Robin Eggs Candy


I was on Pinterest and I saw a Robin comic that I thought was funny so I saved it to my Happy Thoughts board. Then I thought up some of my own.
So Robin Eggs (as previously mentioned) are my favorite candy and I think it's just fitting for Robin to like them, too.

Text:
R: THESE ARE MY FAVORITE EASTER CANDY!!!
B: As long as you're not laying them.
A: Perhaps we should limit his sugar intake, Master Bruce.

Robin in Connecticut


Again, I was on Pinterest and I saw a Robin comic that I thought was funny so I saved it to my Happy Thoughts board and this inspired a week of comics. Robins are the state bird of Connecticut and therefore are protected there and you aren't allowed to kill them, even if one is attacking your truck's side mirror and crapping all over the side of your truck for several days before mysteriously disappearing. Praying Mantises are the state bird of CT and you aren't allowed to kill them, which is why we were not allowed to play on our play set as kids for like a week when a pod hatched next to the play set and the little baby mantises were covering our swings and slide.

Text:
B: Why did you leave Gotham and move to CT?!
R: Holy Protected Species, Batman.

Holy Moley


I was on Pinterest and I saw a Robin comic that I thought was funny so I saved it to my Happy Thoughts board which is just like it sounds, a board of things that make me happy. But now Pinterest thinks I like Batman which is incorrect, I just liked this one funny comic. But since I saw that comic I started seeing more Robin comics and then I thought up a few of my own. This one has probably been done before but it's a classic take on the classic Robin line, "Holy *noun*, Batman" which he used in the corny/classic Batman & Robin show I watched as a kid.

Text:
B: What critter could have dug these holes?
R: Holy Moley, Batman!

Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day!
This is based on my favorite line from a Dr. Seuss book. My favorite book when I was a kiddo was The Pokey Little Puppy but this one is a good one too. So many quotable lines from Dr. Seuss. Spend time with whomever is a mother to you!

Text:
I am glad you are my Mother. And that you are not a SNORT.

Orchestral Tuning


Thought this up while at a very nice concert with my in-laws. The concert was by ECCO ( http://eccorchestra.org/home ), the East Coast Chamber Orchestra. It was very nice. They had this number in the middle, just like all the other concerts I've been to. I wonder who wrote it. :)

Text:
*Mid-Concert Tuning*
L: Every orchestra knows this song, and it's never in the program!
M: It has a nice dissonance.

Wishy-Washy


I feel this could be used on most politicians. The old "I was for that before I was against that." But let's not be political about this - how about you use this on your friends (or parents) the next time they change their plans to hang out / let you hang out. I'm sure it will go over swimmingly.

Text:
Your support of my campaign has been both wishy and washy.

Topsy-Turvy


I think most parents can relate to this. You need to Marie Kondo that room :)

Text:
Your bedroom embodies the principles of both topsy and turvy.

Hunky-Dory


Don't you just hate it when things are like that? I'm not sure if things can be just one and not the other, Well, a fish can be just Dory. And a person can be the other maybe?
Totally unrelated to this of course, Happy Birthday Eve to my amazing husband who is both hunky and dory :)

Text:
M: Things are neither hunky nor dory.
L: *worried*

Higgledy-Piggledy


I know some people like this. I don't think they'd appreciate being told this.
I think splitting two-word phrases into a conjoined phrase is kinda fun. I hope you like it too, because there are more to come.

Text:
Your organization skills bring to mind the terms higgledy and piggledy.

Helter-Skelter


Apparently this phrase is used in a few songs and movies, but the actual origin is hard to find.

Text:
A: This plan seems both helter and skelter.

Mamsy-Pampsy


I always thought this phrase meant wimpy, but apparently it means "refer to parents that are very protective of their children." Which could mean that the kids are wimpy? So maybe I'm not too far off.

Text:
Your efforts in this endeavor fall under both mamsy and pamsy.

Hoity-Toity


This is the start of a series on phrases. This one was inspired by my brother-in-law who heard it from a coworker, hence the credit in the corner. I'm not sure what more to say since it seems the comic just speaks for itself.

Text:
N: That dessert seems both hoity and toity.

Wool Over Eyes


Happy Resurrection Day! He is risen indeed. Once for all is slain, God's Perfect Lamb!

Logistically, I don't know how well a crab's claws would trip sheep wool. But they seem like they'd be good clippers. What does that phrase actually mean? Possibly from the wooly wig days.

Text:
Crab: How would you like it styled?
Sheep: Don't pull the wool over my eyes.

Upset Stomach


I hope you all are well and not getting the Flu - I had that last year and it was horrible. Any time there's internal duress, it is horrible. Also panic attacks are bad, whether it's your cardiac system or digestive.

Text:
A: Could you please stop using the term "internal duress"? It's gross.
B: ... So then my tummy had a panic attack.
