  Things You Don't Want To Read In A Silver Age Comic
(Posted in honor of Identity Crisis, whose third issue goes on sale today!)
NARRATIVE CAPTION:  "Then, as Flash's fingers go into titillating action..."

FLASH:  "He's doing it!  He's stretching up -- like only the Elongated Man could!"

[A couple pages later]  FLASH:  "Yank it, Ralph!  Yank it hard!"
- From The Flash #119 (reprinted in The Flash Archives Volume 3)
