  1. I'm a tiny bit afraid of hawks,
    but only when they come at me in flocks.

  2. Hawks, no, but Hawk-MEN? maybe.

  3. I'm afraid of hawks, but only because I own a small dog.

  4. Like the dogs at the 12th Annual Teacup Poodle Fanciers Picnic being held right next to the falconer club? (Gary Larson, Far Side)

  5. Falcons are not hawks. Duh.

  6. If I had to fight a small, warm-blooded flying animal for some reason, I'd rather fight a bat than a hawk. Just sayin'.

  7. I reject the assumption that we must be afraid of something in order for a superhero to base his or her theme on it. Is anybody afraid of aquas, supers, wonders or elastics?

  8. Being afraid of hawks is so 2009.

  9. Nobody's afraid of hawks ANYMORE.
    The implication is that at one point in time, they were heart-stoppingly terrifying. But once you realized they didn't take your soul if their shadow passed over you, they were fine.

  10. Dude, I'm so afraid of wonders, you don't even get me started.

  11. The only time I was ever frightened by a bat is when one flew right at my face.

    If a hawk flew right at my face, trust me - I'd be friggin terrified.

  14. "Criminals roam the streets like vermin. I will become something that will drive fear into their rat like hearts. I will become...a hawk!"

  15. "anymore"... was there a time when people were downright terrified of hawks? Maybe during the filming of Hitchcock's The Birds...

  16. He SHOULD see "Birdemic"... WHAT'S BIRDEMIC???????

  17. Birdemic is one of the worst movies ever made. It doesn't have any hawks or falcons or crows or even seagulls (despite being set in Half Moon Bay, Cali.) It just has cgi golden eagles, which the "heroes" keep shooting. Not with a shotgun, but with a machine gun. The kids are the best actors in this thing.

  18. The criminals are still superstitious and cowardly lot, I guess.

  19. If a hawk dove at him I'm sure he'd be scared.

  20. I still am afraid of hawks.

    They wait, watching for the slightest mistake. And then....


    BAM!!!!!

  21. You know, I want to see some new superheroes based on things people are actually afraid of.

  22. Hawkman? What does he do, try to follow authorised people through locked doors? That's dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Even worse than parroting the dialogue of the cartoon with a slight variation, is parroting the dialogue of a cartoon posted *months* ago. With a slight variation.

    Sorry little Sorcy, but I'm doing to have to sit you down and firmly but gently explain to you that Sparky went to dog-heaven, your meme is stillborn, and you're not in the least bit funny.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Where's the "it's true" tag for this?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes, the adult version would have been: "Hawkman? What does he do, write Dick Cheney's foreign policy speeches? That's dumb."

    ReplyDelete
  26. Anonymous? What does he do, nothing? That's dumb.

    Also, it doesn't count as a meme until it moves on to other sites. It's never likely to. It is simply an in-joke for OVC fans.

  27. A-Mous is right, you know, it really isn't in the least bit funny. But thanks for trying. We appreciate the effort.

    Yeah, pretty much all you need to defeat a bat is a well-aimed pillowcase. I know. I did it once in college, with the purpose of evicting a bat that had gotten into the basement. And then again a few days later. And yet again a few days later. By the third time, that thing looked exhausted and didn't even try to escape, and I kinda wonder if it stood any chance of surviving the oncoming cold weather, but a college dorm basement is no place for critters to hibernate.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I was as gentle as possible to the little guy, and I'm pretty sure I didn't cause any physical injuries, though I probably scared the crap out of it the first time I netted it.

  29. @Anon 11:36 AM - Oddly enough, a person who hunts with hawks is also called a falconer. Go fig, right?

    Yes, that's right, my friend. You are not funny. How dare you try to be clever by quoting previous cartoons. Your day is done. Me and my Anonymous brethren have slowly weeded out you so-called regulars. We've driven them away like the cowardly dogs that they are. This site belongs to us now. We will sneer at the cartoon and sneer at each other. We will make homophobic and misogynistic remarks. We will insult each other and only band together when one of your kind tries to be come back and attempts cleverness.
    Go! Run! Tell the other regulars! OVC belongs to us. We came, we saw, we ruined the fun for everyone! We are...

  35. We, as a culture, had a fear of hawks? And we somehow got over that recently?
