Did Cap just say what I thought he said?



I don't know, maybe it's just me. For a comic from the '70s, talking about getting rocks off is just a little risque. Plus that's a little coarse for Cap. Even if the guy was out to give America back to Britain.

From Captain America 200 Aug 1976

Wow. I am pretty sure Getting Your Rocks off meant the same thing in the 70s. Did Cappy by any chance have his red, white, and blue suit buttoned down to the navel with a gold necklace dangling an eagle pendant at the bottom?

Boom-wocka-wocka-wocka...

What's more disturbing is his wall-eyed stare as he says it.

Captain America does have a kinky side!

I knew it.

Snab: I think you mean "Brown-chicken. Brown-cow"

BubbaS: That seems to be Cap's default expression throughout the issue.

Dean: you had doubts?

It that the British States of America thing?

Get your rocks off meant it even more in the 70s

Maybe the writer really was just the clueless.

ET: maybe I should *rubs chin*
SB: Ummm... Jack Kirby wrote it, so take that as you will.

Language like that, it's a wonder someone hasn't taken a shot at him.

OH. Ew. Awk-ward!
