Yes but would you vote Spiderman-Kerry, or Spierman-Bush even?  See that's the downside.   Now a Spiderman-Hulk ticket, that's one I could get behind.  Instead of sending the US army into Iraq we could just have sent the Hulk, same result but with no one on our side dieing.

I'd vote Spidey-anyone. He could just web up the other part of the ticket and take care of business.

when i finish reading it. I'm in mid 2002 so I still have around 730 strips to read. I think I'm enjoying these later strips more.  The superhero parody (which was involved with that one for JP) was quite amusing, especially when Bluey is supposed to be confounded by confrontation with the depth of his own character, and he dips his finger in the pool representing it, and it doesn't even cover his claw. The then jumps in the puddle, dancing and celebrating, as it were, in the shallowness of his own character. and actually, I don't think I'm reading too much into that. As he himself says later when told he's one-dimensional "Hey, I like to blow things up AND play video games. That's two dimensions."

Though the best line may be "Quick! Where's the undo button for the kitchen?"

Yeah, yesterday's reading made me laugh out loud and left me smiling a few times. I'm liking it.

just my friendly little reminder: That's Penny Arcade. There's some language there and well, the idea is gross.

The whole thing about it being an abherent whore about graphics and eating up your machine for power to run the game. You know, that stuff.
