The meme based on this panel is comedy gold.
 
The latest Bieber-oriented "Batman-slaps-Robin" meme got me wondering about the original panel and comic story, if not the first use of the meme. I always react to the violence (even though violence goes with Batman, it's usually not against his pals).

I knew there was a good chance the story was what DC Comics used to classify as an "Imaginary Story" (translation: non-canon and not alternate-universe, no way it happened). That turned out to be the case, as you'll see, and I do vaguely recall the story.

I was surprised, though, that the answer was in a 2009 blog post. Yes, the meme is that old.

According to Dragan, birding at the gates of hell is much better than you'd expect.

Mighty warrior of god +Michel James appears to have blocked me on G+ for asking too many questions. I guess one can be confronted with only so much reality before one needs to fall back and regroup.

Educational Entrepreneur - Nature Publisher - Bon Vivant
Introduction
I'm a Bronx boy who actually enjoys living in Rochester, NY (upstate!!) In the moments not devoted to my son and daughter's social lives, I focus my energies on two primary areas:

EDUCATION
Having learned a thing or two over a long history in the test prep industry, I founded Chariot Learning in 2009 to provide expert 1-1 SAT & ACT instruction in the Rochester area. While test prep is our core focus -- and something we're frankly outstanding at -- we also build the language and productivity skills that provide a powerful foundation for college and career success. And in 2012, we added a phenomenal e-mail-based vocabulary program in Roots2Words!

NATURE BLOGGING
Since 2003, I've worked to make the world safe for birding and nature blogging. Thanks to the tireless efforts of my site partner Corey Finger and our murderer's row of brilliant writers and contributors, 10,000 Birds has become a place readers around the world turn to for birding, nature, conservation, and commentary.

Another site I created to promote nature writing on the web is the Nature Blog Network. With more than 2300 members and growing every day, this is the place to find whatever brand of nature blogging you crave.
