Penguin has opened a fancy restaurant called The Penguin's Nest. There every order has to be written down by the customers on a piece of paper. He then plans to get himself arrested and hand over the handwritten notes to a forger doing time by the name of Ballpoint Baxter. Suspecting a scheme, Batman urges the police not to send The Penguin back to his permanent cell. Unable to reach Ballpoint, The Penguin and his culinary cohorts escape from jail, taking Chief O'Hara along as a hostage. Written by

When Batman and Robin visit Penguin in his holding cell, he believes that he is being charged with "simulated murder". Batman corrects him, telling him that he is being held for violating the sanitary code. Since Penguin would have to be told the charge against him before being taken to his cell, this means that Batman and the police have changed the charge without telling him--a violation of Penguin's Miranda rights that Batman would never countenance.
