or spent a lot of time in Calcutta; how else would he know about the relationship between a ghoti and his fish?
From the Batman TV Episode An Egg Grows in Gotham [2.13]
Robin: “Ghoti” is “fish”?
Batman: See here. English phonetics. GH becomes F, as in “tough” or “laugh”. O becomes I as in “women”. TI becomes SH as in “ration” or the word “nation”.
Robin: Holy semantics, Batman. You never cease to amaze me!
Batman: No time for compliments, Robin. We must thwart some criminals. To the Batmobile!
I knew it all along. Must go watch another Bong superhero, the bnoti-fingered Ulbharin from Uluberia, sometime soon at a movie theatre near me.
