Droom and Iron Man

I love it that Moomin’s exclamations mostly come from comic books. I’ve heard him say in all seriousness:
– For Pete’s sake!
– What the . . . !
– Good grief!
– My stars!
– Suffering sharks! (Um, thanks, Aqualad)
– Holy mackerel!
– Holy smokes!
– In a jiffy!
There are more – all Silver Age wonders. Way better than him picking up on my own constant stream of boring profanity!
