DORK ADDENDA: Some overseas readers have never heard the original joke. It goes like this:
Q: How does Batman’s mother call him to dinner?
A: (To the tune of the 1960’s theme) Dinner Dinner Dinner Dinner Batman!!

DORK ADDENDA: For those who don’t get the original reference (yes, I know I probably out-obscured myself):
There’s a semi-famous New Yorker cartoon from years ago that runs “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” (In fact, if you google “On the internet,” this is the first thing that comes up).
I wanted to use this, but I also wanted to acknowledge that, though the Panel 3 gag is a fairly silly one, many people wouldn’t get it, and it wouldn’t be nearly as good as Matt thought it was…
Here’s the original cartoon: http://bit.ly/9Vzs
So, yes…just me being obscure and silly with something.
Wow. The original cartoon is 17 years old. I feel teh ancient…
(Today’s strip, it should go without saying, is with deepest apologies to @dog).
