A Crayon Haiku #77!

Hey all! It’s been a while since the last update, but I wanted to make absolutely sure that y’all didn’t miss The Sarah Jane Adventures Drinking Game and had ample time to get your drink on with Miss Smith. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. 😉

Anyway, to kick May off, we’ve got A Crayon Haiku #77… which actually has two 5-7-5 poems. The first is nothing new to you if you’ve read my personal blog lately, but I finally got a Scarecrow figure to bring my Legion of Doom membership count to five. (Though I guess this is the first time Lex Luthor and Black Manta have appeared on SC as well, huh?) And I’d been sort of sitting on the second haiku for some time — ever since I read Salvation Run #4 a couple of months ago, actually. Originally I was going to make it a Hot Flash, but then I decided to make it a quick haiku… and then I decided to reshoot it with the Batman/Superman Series 5 Joker after I got that figure. (I’d previously used one from the “The Batman” figure line.) And then I forgot about it again. Anyway, lest I put it off any longer, I decided to lump it in and make this one of those rare two-haiku installments. Enjoy. 🙂

More substantial fare coming soon — after all, I do have that Kong review to finish! And I did come across a Supreme Kong at a decent price, so I may even have to expand the Kong review to three parts. We’ll see.

Until next time, then!

    Ooooo Black Manta. I’m jealous. I wish I could find him. And Aquaman and Harley. I have Superman Blue and Firestorm.

    I wish I could find Harley as well! The only other one I saw when I nabbed Black Manta was Superman Blue, who’s not really at the top of my list. I could see going for Aquaman or Firestorm, but since I’ve got no plans to build the Grodd BAF I’d just as soon pass on them. It would depend upon my mood, really.

    But yes, def want Harley — anticipation of her was one of the main reasons I picked up that Joker (Mr. Mxyzptlk being the other). 🙂

  • I haven’t read the story you’re talking about, but I think I’d be more afraid of Joker than Grodd.

    Grodd is a strategist, he can be reasoned with. You just need to give him a good reason to let you live (same with Lex).

    Joker, on the other hand, is a psycho. If he decides it would be funny to kill you, there’s no talking him out of it! It’s just one spray of smilex and it’s all over!

  • This has nothing to do with the topic (like I ever stay on topic), but I saw this on Youtube and just had to show everyone here…

    Youtube is truly, truly outrageous!!!

  • Wait, this one’s even better…

    OK, sorry to flood your blog like that.

    Bringing it back to topic, those Legion of Doom figures indeed look menacing. Let us know when you get Solomon Grundy!

  • Wes says:

    I dunno, Tetsu — Grodd’s a speciesist super-gorilla that eats people. Joker’s nuts, but at least one could theoretically take him in a fight! Limited sucker punch victories aside, even Batman gets owned by Gorilla Grodd.

    The Salvation Run issue referenced has the Joker kicking Grodd off a cliff and thereby “killing” him. Admittedly, Grodd had been shot multiple times when Joker did it, but still — he’s a freaking gorilla! I expect Grodd to show up later and feast on clown flesh.

    And yes, YouTube is indeed truly, truly, truly outrageous.

  • You’re right. Joker kicking Grodd off a cliff does actually seem kinda weak.

    I could see Joker taking Grodd with super concentrated “Gorilla-strength” smilex gas or an exploding whoopee cushion, (Joker has no reason to envy Batman’s toys. He has even cooler ones) or something like that, but a kick off a cliff just doesn’t make sense.

    Anyway, I still think I’d have a better chance convincing Grodd that it’s in his best strategic interests not to eat me, than convincing Joker that it wouldn’t be hilarious to fry me with his souped-up hand-buzzer.

  • Wes says:

    I dunno — you might have better luck convincing a KKK grand wizard not to lynch you as a minority in the 1880s. 😛

  • Five words: “I’m high in trans fat!” 😀

    That was a long time ag since you’ve posted any articles.
    I’ve been missing theses updates!
