  1. Tindi says:

    I suspect I’d be a rather bad god, because “Because I am a god and I say so” would cross these lips a LOT, especially to buggers like Jhalm.

  2. D.W. Drang says:

    Don’t be too hard on Jhalm–it can’t be easy to be in a position where you get to tell a God you answer to a higher power…

  3. Sammi says:

    Always good to know which haystack you’re looking in.

  4. Mark Antony says:

    Wow. Petitioning the gods, it seems, is much like petitioning Congress.

  5. thisfox says:

    They have the haystack, they know which needle…… Now all they need is a magnet.

  6. BunnyRock says:

    No, gods forgive. And are usually infallible.

    Unless they are ancient Mediterranean gods, drunken, amorous out of control lunatics…


    You may have a point.
    Hah! I just remembered that old US marine joke:

  7. Xyon says:

    Didn’t the statue make a point of the fact that it wasn’t a god in the early pages of this comic?

  8. TekServer says:

    The statue itself is not a god, but it is a channel – an avatar – through which Ganesh can work. So the line between statue and Ganesh can get pretty blurred during some conversations.


  9. Murasaki says:

    Ganesh is an avatar of Ganesha, I would assume.

    Or ya could look at it like Jesus. Both a god, and not a god, depending
    on who ya ask, when…..

  10. Tindi says:

    Too much Mythbusters….

    thisfox: or a tub full of water and some paddlewheels to agitate it. And most of a day.

    Sorry! Could NOT help that.

  11. aaah! BunnyRock, you didn’t finish the joke! Now I’ll be sitting here all day wondering…

  12. Roscoe Del'Tane says:

    To HECK with searching, break out the flamethrowers! That’ll save you a LOT of time, once you start sifting through the ashes.

  13. JET73L says:

    “I brought you into this world, I can take you out of it! In about thirty to sixty years, give or take… thirty to sixty years. I am not a smiting god.”

    Nooo, BunnyRock! If not for the colon, the omission of the joke wouldn’t have been a tenth as obsession-inciting!

  14. BunnyRock says:

    “To err is Human, to forgive is divine.

    Neither is Marine Corps policy.โ€

    And although I turned Mark Antony’s comment into a joke aimed at the US congress, please take it on board that I respect the US congress exactly as much as I respect Parliament. More, in fact. A lot more.

    I would list other organisations I respect more than parliament, but unfortunately I donโ€™t want to crash the internet. Besides, the expense scandal in the UK last year revolved around a duck-house: they are in league with my one-time gaolers!
