Occupational Hazards

No one should ever be forced into a boner - 
not even Batman.


  1. Say what? You did it again Liberty....a big smile on my face this morning.

  2. I assume the panel is from an actual old Batman comic. It's funny how words can change and take on sometimes quite different meanings. I do remember back in the day when someone would say, "I pulled a boner today" it wouldn't have drawn giggles because it meant you had made a mistake or goofed up, as in, "Man, that was a big boner I had at the office today." A big boner wasn't something to brag about.

    Of course there was also a time when saying you had intercourse with someone meant you were writing letters to each other, but if you were having a correspondence with that person...well, that was frowned upon, you naughty boy.


  3. Glad you enjoyed it. Boners have come a long way over the years and I hope that one day they will achieve national holiday status.

  4. I remember when I had to stand up in front of my eight grade class and give a book report and I got a boner. Talk about embarrassing. I was giving a book report on "The Mill on the Floss", about the most boring book in the English language. Looking back on it, I now realize that it was one of my classmate's steady stare at me while I was giving my book report that resulted in my involuntary body reaction. No one questioned me when I returned to my desk all stooped over. Ah adolescence when just a look could generate such a reaction whereas now one would need a blue pyramid shaped pill to achieve the same result......maybe.
