What the...?

So...I was going through my Photobucket stuff, and cleaning out things, and rediscovering all kinds of weird stuff. And I came across THIS!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Let me just state for the record that I have absolutely NO clue about where this is from, or exactly what it is that they are referring to. But isn't it nice that Hal and Barry are such close...er...friends.

Oh, and that whole "jiving Starbreaker" thing? Hal, it NEVER works when you try to use slang. You're a REPUBLICAN for heaven's sake...try and act like it!

Oh, those whacky Silver Age stories. :-) I believe that's from an early '70s issue of the Flash, but the number escapes me at the moment. Yeah, Hal and slang -- especially 70s slang -- shudder. That sorta thing always sounded better coming from Ollie for some reason (Ollie was particularly good at throwing around the word "turkey" in the 70s). I think at this point Hal had been hanging around with Ollie WAY too much.

... or was that, rather, from an early JLA story ...? I dunno. I just remember Hal hauling Starbreaker off to OA for imprisonment. Seems like OA has always operated as headquarters for the JLA prison system. That's probably the primary reason why the JLA always wants a GL in the ranks. :-\

What's really scary is that I actually kinda sorta remember this and it seemed perfectly normal at the time! Of course, now I have no idea what it's from. ;)

This WAS a tad on the bizarre side wasn't it? Do you think that poor Iris and Carol ever felt awkward, sitting at the table, while Barry and Hal were staring into one another's eyes?

I think you're right Sea, it is all Ollie's fault.

And being able to ship your extraterrestrial villains off to Oa, IS a darned handy thing to be able to do.

I know what you mean Shelly, you read something, and then go back and wonder what on earth...?

Soup, have you been abducted AGAIN!?

Sally, it's more a matter of context. When I read that originally, it was a different time and I had different expectations. I wasn't seeing stuff like that in well, anything. I was a lot younger and less aware of subtext. Even now, I wouldn't necessarily see it unless others pointed it out, but since subtext has become a big issue in recent years, I do see it more. But back then, that was normal. Kinda like the feel good buddy shows like Starsky and Hutch of the '70s.

We're paranoid about relationships and buggery in ways we weren't before. Case in point: Dino Boy in the Lost Valley. In its day it was innocent fun, but by today's standards it's a NAMBLA recruitment film.
