Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

There’s something extraordinary about Ordinary Batman. We love artist Sarah Johnson and have previously featured her GIF series Ordinary Batman Adventures, in which the eponymous hero has a series of crushingly banal adventures. From fly-fishing to cleaning a litter box, they make Waiting for Godot look like a Michael Bay film.

But part of Batman’s appeal is that he’s just a man, struggling through life on the same terms as every other billionaire playboy on the planet. Ordinary Batman has ordinary concerns.

One of those is Earth Day.

Happy Earth Day from Ordinary Batman, Sarah Johnson, and us at the Daily Dot!
