Author Edward Stratemeyer created Tom Swift, a character well known for his play on words. Some are hilarious:
"Get away from the dynamite," Tom said explosively.
"I'm an ordained minister," said Tom reverently.
Maybe this was an inspiration for some of the dialogue in the original Batman series. Robin sure uses the same concept to create some hilarious, memorable lines, like this one:
"Holy costume party! That's the Penguin!"
Can you think of a Robin Swiftie? I'll give it a whirl:
Holy blizzards, Batman! What a snow job!
Holy shrubbery! An ambush!
Holy wagging tongues! You're on the front page of the National Enquirer!
Have fun! :)
