This one is really worth it. Just don't read where people will look oddly at you every time you break out laughing.

Although, what can they do? Jump up and down and yell, "Shut him up, Shut him up"?

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

Still clearing some of my outstanding ones.
A translucent pink scarf which renders the wearer resistant to many forms of injury. Tied to one end of it is something invisible which feels like it is made of silk. Those who figure out what it is by touch are likely to be mildly embarrassed when they do.

Aqua's defensive charm from KonoSuba. And her invisible underwear, if you follow some of the fanon.

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

Here are a few related items:

A smashed Stradivarius violin, with long-dried tear stains on the wood and a few spandex threads snagged on it. A capsule of an unfamiliar medicine is trapped in one of the remaining crevices.

A scarab brooch made from a rare metallic alloy.

A large, ornate belt with odd circuitry inside it.

A chunk of black rock with three smooth facets, apparently broken off the corner of a larger object.

An electric razor with a bunch of red hair stuck to it.

A brown feather from an unknown avian species.

A shattered throwing knife.

A pair of paternity test results.

A blouse with a cleavage hole.

A white cane and a pair of nearly-opaque glasses.

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

OK, that last one was probably too obscure even for older DC fans, I guess. Here's one which is likely to be less so, though I won't hold my breath waiting for someone to get it: a bullet-shaped metal robot, perhaps 7" (18cm) tall, with an antenna ending in a glowing knob on the top of its head and a trough or tube protruding from its groin. It likes to talk dirty. Surrounding it are desiccated orange rinds and cigarette butts.

White cane and dark glasses?
Civilian gear of the golden age Dr. Mid-nite?

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

I believe that's one of the Original Captain Marvel's foes, Mr. Atom, I believe, from the immediate Post-War era

Stolen by the Fiddler, destroyed by Hourman, covered by insurance.

Has that been retconned into Ninth Metal too? Paging Ted Kord...

IIRC, the Cosmic converter belt was Sky Pemberton's gimmick before passing it on to his step-daughter.

Something Todd Rice needs to avoid?

Albert Rothstein can't rock a mohawk without it.

So half-Feitherans (i.e., Norda Cantrell) molt?

Didn't Helena Wayne prefer the non-shattered versions?

Schol-R-LEA wrote: A pair of paternity test results.


Which I don't think Rose Canton ever revealed to Alan Scott.

Easy to forget that Karen Starr was in Infinity, Inc.

Mister E's, or Charles McNider's?

Pretty much on target Null, though a few clarifications:

Nope, it was a piece off of the Erebus Altar which Fury and Green Flame were blackmailed into obtaining for Shade, in the same story as the violin Fiddler stole.

Beth Chapel's actually, during her ill-fated tenure as the second Dr. Midnight, when Charles was busy with, well, stopping the coming of Ragnarok and all that.

facepalm Inches, not feet.

No, this isn't a DC thing (unlike the others which Null0Trooper correctly identified, mostly). This one has a more... online origin. I can see that the wording I used might be misleading on the point, though.

I knew it had to do with one of the two :) Post James Robinson, I could see it as something used against The Shade.
