The HR Department - 7/3/12

sg
Aquaman made yet another appearance in an online comic strip this month, namely the July 3 installment of The HR Department, which appears in the Richmond, VA Style Weekly. I'm not sure what myth, exactly, is being busted here, but I know I wouldn't want to be Jamie or Adam when Aquaman wakes up!

This was caught and sent in by my friend David Morefield. David wrote a great piece for my Hey Kids, Comics! blog a few years ago, but this is his first contribution to the Shrine. So thanks David, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

The myth is that if you put the hand of someone sleeping into a bucket of water they'll pee their pants.

I thought it was that Aquaman can breathe through his gloved fingers. I hope he's just sleeping.

David said...

Logically this wouldn't prove anything as (a) he's wearing a glove and (b) he's Aquaman, so he's used to being in water already.

However it does raise the interesting question of just how he goes about relieving himself while underwater. Multiply by a few thousand people and I'm guessing Atlantis has some serious sanitation issues.

I just figured Atlantis had a stream of water everyone swam to to do their business each morning. A jet stream which pushed all the muck elsewhere....
