That phrase will always only make me think of Psychoville. ;)

It's interesting how the word "holy" has lost meaning and possibly even is no longer part of English for me.

It's like when you read or write the same word over and over it starts to look foreign. Only in this case, it's because I watched these videos.

Still, great fun. Thanks for posting!

Nothing beats the Cole's notes approach for getting down to the nitty gritty.

Holy guacamole that brings back memories! In grade school I went through a "holy _____!" phase, but abandoned it when nobody else thought it was a funny as I did. jdfan is right, it does get to be a much pretty quickly.

"Holey rusted metal, Batman!" Was the best part of Batman Forever.

Near my home is a children's day care institution called the Holy Family Day Home. One morning as I walked by I noticed that some graffitist wit had add, ", Batman!" to their sign.

I laughed, though they probably shouldn't have done that.

I've never really understood what the phrasing means...is it like a short circuited blasphemy?

Instead of saying 'damn it to hell' you say 'darn it to heck' or 'what the dickens?' instead of wtf?

So it's Holy Hole in the Donut instead of maybe "Holy Christ" or something?

I want to understand!

I failed to notice as a child how very skimpy Robin's outfit is. Is he wearing a speedo all the time? Did Batman insist on that?

Yeah, Bruce Wayne had some issues to work through.

Tight and small ...Burt Ward had to tuck cause he was a bit ...noticeable in the crotch region.

Fun fact: he later went on to do porn.

Seriously? Wikipedia and imdb don't have anything on that, aside from b-movie sex comedies. His autobiography sounds interesting though. A quote from one of the reviews:

'Into his mouth snaked that long, quivering tongue, not unlike what the creature did to the astronaut in Alien... This monster was like a 150-pound tick embedded in his face. During the ruckus, I caught glimpses of Adam [West]'s face covered with the drool and slobber of her wet kisses...'

I skimmed through part of his autobiography in a book store. It should have been called "Boy Wonder:I am not gay and I totally did it with lots of chicks". It was entertaining but kind of sad.
