The Saturday Comics: The Infamous Case of The Joker’s Boner (by popular request)

August 25, 2012

I originally posted this in 2010 but it is a perennial on this site. Not a day goes by that this post does not get any views. I have posted just under 1,000 blogs and this one is, month in and month out, one of the most viewed.

from December 28, 2010

Wonder Woman, Lois Lane. Jimmy Olsen. As we’ve seen, Superman has a pretty diverse circle of friends. One is an Amazonian princess who rides a skateboard. Another is a woman who locks her head in a safe, and the third is some sort of hybrid monkey boy.

Next up is the world-famous crime-fighter, Batman. Oh, in this era he wasn’t exactly the  Dark Knight we all know now. Back in the 1940’s and 50’s Batman tended to be a bit, um goofy. And possibly a repressed homosexual. In the panels reprinted below, the Joker, upset that Gotham City laughed at his boner, decides to get Batman to pull his own boner and thus, well, maybe you should just read for yourself.

This story exists on the net mostly as single panels. A few are missing, mostly ones that don’t use the word “boner.” I’ve put them together as best I can. So here we go, back to the glory days of comic books, where every kid dreamed of reading about a big boner.

And there you go. The Joker pulled his boner, Batman pulled his boner, I bet even Robin went off and pulled his boner somewhere off panel, probably while looking at that volume of “Great Boners of All Time” Bruce Wayne keeps in his library. God only knows what Aunt Harriet thought when she saw that one!

But the fun isn’t over yet. Here is an absolutely real Batman water gun. Note the plug and the trigger.

Here is something else I found on the net. I’d give credit where credit is due but I have no idea who made this. Good thing that Batman didn’t have this problem in that Joker caper!

And lastly, not Bat-related but still funny, from the good people at Wrestlecrap:

    Sigmund Freud….. Is spinning in his urn. Did he even imagine the Freudian overtones of the word ” boner ” ?

    Remember Dr. Wertham / Wertheim, whatever his name was ? I’ve got to wonder what he’d think of Batman & Robin’s ” Boners ” ?
    Siggy, Siggy, Siggy, we could use the insight of that brilliant Viennese / Austrian ( ? ) psychoanalytical mind of yours !
