    In a very early Mad Magazine, Wonder Woman uses her magic bracelets to deflect two sprays of machine-gun fire. The villain -- inexplicably wearing a Batman costume -- points out "the physical and mathematical impossibility for her to withstand the impact of point-blank bullets without getting knocked over or shattering her wrists". Art by Bill Elder, with his usual insanity and nonsense.

      I don't personally know a single organist that you can get even close to tea. Now if you change that for some decent strong beer they will flock to it!
