Wow. Going back to Adam West for the joke.
Ahh… truth is awfuler than fiction =(
Seriously, this is what our tax dollars go towards? A gimmicky, tacky name?
They’re just as well-off. It would have only worked on bat-sharks.
You tell that to Batman right now! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0UJaprpxrk
Holy Sardines! A classic. watching it now, I’m starting to question why Batman would need Manta-Ray repellent though since to my knowledge they mainly each plankton and don’t have bards like sting-rays do.
Do they have any sort of poet?
Steve Irwin could have used it.
Wrong species though.
Doesn’t that spell….Batmak?
Everyone knows the brass can’t spell.
Yes, but Batman is too awesome to not be in the name.
Deliberately created acronyms get really creative. The k is silent, so it’s not used. The vocalized N is what’s used.
It’s just as reasonable as every school that talks about the three ‘R’s that are really one R, a W, and an A.
the guy who coined that one was illiterate…
It was named by the same guy that came up with M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand).
Damn, beat me to it.
that being the case, we should come up with acronyms composed entirely of silent letters.
A daunting task. Just what words actually start with silent vowels, and are there any that don’t also have an alternate spelling without those silent vowels? I mean, “aether” doesn’t work, and “oesophagus” is never used.
…um, “Wrought Oesophagal Knob,” or W.O.K.
Well, they would probably still be in trouble since they’d still be in the blast radius. XD
SOME DAYS YOU JUST CAN’T GET RID OF A BOMB
In that video is it just me or does it seem like the marching band, lady with a baby carriage and the nuns are stalking Batman?
its actually BAT MAN-AK
Batman’s from Arkansas?
No, he’s from Alaska.
Even without shark repellent, he’s tougher than he seems♪
Other heroes often ask, “Why is he always the top cat?”
Do they have the clear folding bullet proof shield? That was my favorite. I think in one of the cartoons Batman just punched all the sharks in the nose.
data storage solution
Something’s wrong! It’s not showing up! T.T
Oh, I see it now! XD
I want to see the 60s Batman meet up the modern Batman, and the 1939 Batman… They should team up to beat the Jokers from their respective eras, who are also teamed up. That would make for an epic comic book series. We should call DC Comics and tell them to do that.
I’m honestly surprised they haven’t done that already.
…I punch him again, and I swear another forty teeth fall out of his mouth.
Superman: The Man of Steel #37, set during Zero Hour, had Superman meeting up with a dozen or so different incarnations of Batman, from the 1939 version to the Frank Miller version, all written and drawn in their original style. No Jokers showed up, but they got it halfway, anyway.
That was honestly the best part of Zero Hour.
(The best thing to come out of Zero Hour was the Jack Knight Starman)
Not exactly like that, but Planetary had a cross over where you saw batman’s from various fictions and era’s.

How about Batman vs. Batman vs. Batman?
Share & Enjoy!
It’s actually “Shark-repellent Bat Spray” get it right please =P
Nice to know it wasn’t just me thinking that. As I recall, they had a whole rack of assorted Bat Sprays, although I’m not sure what any of the others were.
The other 3 were barracuda, whale and manta ray. I actually had an image of the Oceanic Repellent Bat-Sprays rack as my Facebook pic for a while (because I am a nerd), and thus it is forever burned into my brain.
Haha, nice. The only one I could remember off the top of my head was the Barracuda one.
No bat-shark repellent? Next you’ll be telling me they don’t have a bat-credit card!
THEY GAVE HIM A BAT CREDIT CARD!?!?!?
*goes on wild rampage*
I wonder if Batman still carries that around with him, just in case.
Batman is Prepared.
Damn Navy for not inventing shark repellent when they were suppose to. Quit relying on Bruce Wayne for everything
Shouldn’t there be 16 ‘na’s?
Eh — it just depends where in the music phrase you start from.
Wasn’t it ROBOT-Shark-Repellent Bat-Spray, anyway? I don’t think it’d work on regular-type sharks.
Nope, it was an actual shark that Joker had trained to attack Batman and filled with explosives. Because if there’s one thing that show prided itself on, it was its intense hyper-realism.
Fun fact: Nobody ever actually says “Batman” in that theme song. It’s the trumpets playing a trick.
Adam West said that, but the show’s composer says otherwise. Snopes al rescate!
Yeah, that’s one of those “little known facts” that isn’t true. Like the bit about duck quacks not echoing.
Damn. I miss the Batman jokes. Willis, keep them coming when you get back to the regular comics, will ya?
And so I reach the end of the archives. What a wild ride.
*Whipcrack* Off to google-reader with you!
