I believe my own reaction upon learning there was a new Sam and Max game in the works was "Sweet Mother of Monkey!" I have no idea whether I picked this up from Sam and Max or elsewhere, or just coined it spontaneously, but it certainly seemed the appropriate thing to say at the time.

Exclamations like "Sweet suffering Saint Sebastian..." remind me of Hermes on Futurama, whose formula is "Sweet [animal] of [location]", though with rhyming instead of alliteration. ("Sweet guinea pig of Winnipeg!"; "Sweet three-toed sloth of ice planet Hoth!") Perhaps the editors of Lingua Pranca would print an article on comparative animated exclamatology.

Is there a correlation between having a sense of humor and
intelligence? Any scientific studies, theories, etc. would be
appreciated. Think this might be fun for a google researcher to look
for.

And conversely, does a lack of sense of humor mean less intelligence?

I think, this theme is quite actual now. I have no idea whether I picked this up from Sam and Max or elsewhere, or just coined it spontaneously, but it certainly seemed the appropriate thing to say at the time.

Thanks for the information! In the 1960s, long before it could be terrorized by a giant robotic Abe Lincoln, the nation was introduced to expressions of surprise of the form "Holy [Noun Phrase]" via the Batman television series.
