Naughty Butler Seeks Same
This was in the good old days, when the Wayne Foundation building had a promotional tie-in with the National Broccoli Council.
And yes, "the summer days drag by"...
...Along with this storyline, which somehow requires Batman to be sidelined for as long as it takes Tub to get in shape to fight him. And what does everyone's favorite tight-lipped workaholic do with all this free time? You're probably thinking, "He'd continue his investigation of General Angst from the confines of the Batcave, using Robin and Batgirl as his field operatives."
But that would make sense, and this is a Denny O'Neil story. So you're wrong.
"Your back-issues of 'Honcho' have arrived, sir..."
Poor Bruce. He still doesn't have any strength in his wrists.
Also, it looks like Tub ain't the only one who's getting hormone therapy! 'Cause Brucie-boy is looking less like a brawny adventurer and more like Janice Dickinson.
Yes, thanks to this extended rest period, Batman is now the world's foremost authority on mink farming, humidifier repair, and Ricardo Montalban. And Alfred? Alfred is reduced to trolling the personal ads. So we can add "hernia" to the list of Batman's ailments!
