Robin's Best 'Holy' Sayings

Robin's Top Ten Holy Exclamations

One of the greatest things about the classic Batman series, aside from Bruce Wayne's fashionable array of sweaters and the Joker's grease painted moustache, was Robin's penchant for exclaiming 'Holy --somewhat relevant word--' in response to, well, just about everything. According to Holy Smokes Batman, the sadly defunct archive of the sayings, Robin used the catchphrase no less than 359 times over 120 episodes.

Here are 10 of my personal favourites!



Holy Hardest Metal In The World

S03:E23 'I'll Be A Mummy's Uncle'. King Tut purchases a plot of land adjacent to Wayne Manor with the aim of drilling for the supposedly unbreakable Nilanium. Thankfully Tut is restored to his true self - mild mannered Yale Professor, William Omaha McElroy - while his gang has their memories erased by Batnesia gas.



Holy Impregnability

S01:E26 'Batman Sets The Pace'. Batman and Robin escape from the Joker's makeshift prison and track him down to his hideout. The Joker doesn't stand a chance against the Caped Crusader and his shapely calved sidekick!



Holy Hole In A Donut

S01:E09 'Zelda The Great'. Zelda, AKA The Bank Bandit, robs $100,000 every April Fools Day. This year she kidnaps Aunt Harriet into the bargain. If only Batman hadn't stole her heart she might have gotten away with it too...



Holy Interplanetary Yardstick

S03:E24 'The Joker's Flying Saucer'. Ruling Gotham is child's play - the Joker has ambitions to rule the universe! Can Batman and Robin measure up?



Holy Here We Go Again

S03:E15 'The Ogg Couple'. Olga, Queen of the Bessarovian Cossacks, teamed up with Egghead to steal the the Sword of Bulbul and the Egg of Ogg from Gotham City Museum. Poor Robin was just done with the whole escapade.



Holy Taxidermy

S01:E28 'The Pharaoh's In A Rut'. King Tut captures Batman - cue Robin to the rescue! After Alfred drives the underage young master to the scene of the crime.



Holy Uncanny Photgraphic Mental Processes

S02:E52 'Batman's Satisfaction'. The Dynamic Duo get their very own crossover with Kato and the Green Hornet when the fate of a stamp factory is on the line.



Holy Contributing to the Delinquency of Minors

S03:E11 'The Londinium Larcenies'. Batman and Robin accompany Commissioner Gordon to Londinium in the old country, where Lord Marmaduke Ffogg and Lady Penelope Peasoup have been getting up to all kinds of rapscallionry - like stealing Her Majesty's priceless snuffboxes!



Holy Rising Hemlines

S03:E12 'The Foggiest Notion'. Lord Marmaduke Ffogg and Lady Penelope Peasoup are plotting to take over the Londinium fashion world by stealing a shipment of mod clothing material. If they get their dastardly way perhaps Robin's will no longer be the only legs on display?



Holy One Track Bat Computer Mind

S03:E03 'The Wail Of The Siren'. Loreli Circe, AKA The Siren, starts hypnotizing men with the power of her voice. What will the Boy Wonder do when Bruce Wayne falls under her spell?

50 Free Welsh Language Resources

Unlike literacy and maths, Welsh really isn't a subject we'll be using everyday without a concerted effort to do so. Every morning we've been doing three Duolingo lessons with Marianna - challenging for me and repetition of basic words and concepts for her - and then watching a couple of Welsh language cartoons to listen to the rhythm of the words and so on. Here is a list of free Welsh language resources from around the web, ranging from GCSE revision guides to adult basics to children's cartoons uploaded to YouTube. Hopefully you'll be able to mix and match to suit your own needs over the next few weeks and months. (I'd normally direct people to places like Sain Wales to buy hard copy media, but they're closed for the duration and we should try to lighten the load on the postal service to essentials besides.)

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
