  1. I have so many questions about this one. First was “You’ll be a dead rabbit” a common phrase in 1941, or was this guy just trying to be all Charlie Sheen-like? And how slow does the other guy turn into water that he can’t get it done before the bunny-killer shoots? And if your power is turning into water, wouldn’t you wear an oldie time bathing suit, not the tweed jacket-ascot-fedora combo he’s sporting? I think my brain just fried.

  2. Making a phoney move is a heck of a gang initiation:

  3. @ dan See this is the one power it makes sense to wear a spandex costume, and he is wearing a tweed jacket, one of the worst fabrics to get wet! God these costume designers in 1941 were just dumb!

  4. @Dan: He probably turns into hard water.

    Hey, TheNate, I don’t see the Yancey Street Boys mentioned in that article.
