Okay, you've outdone yourself. I've never heard of anybody ever getting tired of hearing "you da man!" so here's another one!

Kudos on the 'Big Trouble in little China' reference.

Great Strip! I was disapointed, however, that there was no "Golden Child" reference. "Tibet?!! Why can't I be chosen to go to the Bahamas?!!" Best illustration of the whole "it sucks to be the chosen one" thing I've seen yet.

After reading that, I feel pretty good. Kind of invincible.

And I agree, you should have left the Hazzard reference more subtle. Then you could have done a follow up strip "How to make obscure references"... Or how to appreciate them. One or the other.

I'm working on a grammar nazi logo but I'm about as artsy as this yellow legal pad sitting on my desk. I was thinking of maybe the words grammar, punctuation, spelling and structure in hakenkruez form. Anyone want to follow through and design something? Some of you could use it as your avatar. Just sayin'...

What is the basic instructions guy's name, anyway? Is he supposed to be Scott? If not, I don't see why his name can't be Blade or Nunchuck or some killing word.

wait - isn't it spelled profit-see? No! its spelled professee. NO! This is the past transitive possessive form of the future tense so it should be xotphcey.

Who gives a shit, this is a GREAT comic!

*no offense to any here who may be*
This reminds me of nutty Jehovah's Witnesses! how many times was the world suppose to end now? I guess all the magical chosen ones saved it time and again with their ever giving wallets of saving might!
They're not suppose to drink alcohol though I think...though my neighbor did...hmmmmm. Shifty.

Haha -- anyone else getting the "Your name is no accident! Numerology never lies!" ad from Google in the top-left corner? Even Google knows you are The One!

Drink the water of life = Dune, the book and movie

Name a killing word = Dune, the movie only, NOT the book

Wow. I didn't see the comic before the correction, but now I'll forever know which prophec/sy is which.

I just knew how to fulfill the prophecy.. :p

This is how I picture Mike and Andrew each and every day.

"Is your name a killing word?"

Didn't stop chuckling over this one for hours.

the "straighten the curlves, flatten the hills" is from FLCL and japanese manga

You forgot "I am the shortening of the way".

Great comic. Waylon Jennings borrowed the Dukes of Hazard lyrics from Isaiah 40:4. Country singers know their scripture.

This is okay though, because that's a prophecy about the chosen one too.

Nice to start with a Dune reference in panel 3!!!
