Who He Is and How He Came to Be

Batman’s Most Ordinary Adventures

It was David Willis, so far as I know, who first postulated that if slapstick comedy becomes more funny as the intelligence of its victim rises, then Batman is the greatest straight man in the world, capable of making anything funny. That’s probably why the Joker likes him so much. That’s probably also why Sarah Johnson‘s Ordinary Batman Adventures series is so popular, so check it out when you’re done looking at this small sample here.

    Admiring the oh-so-subtle smile in the first one. :)

    I saw the rolling chair one last night on Tumblr and might have laughed for a good five minutes.

    Sadly, Batman hasn’t had days like those since he was a kid.

    Do you have any idea just how long Batman practiced scooping cat litter!? Thousands of hours! He’s perfected the process! Nobody scoops like The Bat! Nobody!

    I remember playing with my Hip Wader Batman action figure as a wee boy. It was hours of fun. Cast and reel, over and over, trying to catch Joker Fish.

    He even has a scooper on his utility belt, for crying out loud!
