George Gallup famously said: "I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone -- the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity!"
In panel 5 on page 7 in "Walk, Batman - To Your Doom!" in Batman #173 (Aug. 1965), Batman reads the latest edition of the Evening News. The headline reads: "Galdown Poll Puts Knott Out Ahead!" The name of the poll - the "Galldown Poll" is a playful twist on the Gallup Poll, named for George Gallup. Note how the poll's name combines the root "Gall" with the word "down" (the opposite of "up". So instead of the "Gall-up Poll," Batman reads results from the "Gall-down Poll."
