Apologies to any non-creatives left scratching their heads over this one

Posted on May 11th, 2009

If you're one of our many (five) readers outside the advertising industry, all you really need to know to enjoy this comic like a pro is that there's a book called Hey Whipple, Squeeze This, revered by copywriters and art directors alike. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, it contains rituals for the worship and summoning of dread Cthulhu. Or something. I really should check it out one of these days.

Hey Whipple, squeeze this
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh C'thulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Movies Jamie will never, ever watch

  • Anything black and white
  • Anything with subtitles
  • Anything old enough to vote
  • Anything where people sing and dance
  • Anything with kung fu
  • Anything sad*
  • Anything likely to be nominated for an Independent Spirit Award
  • Anything that doesn't end exactly the way anyone who's ever seen a movie knows it will end after watching 30 seconds of the trailer

*Other than Marley & Me. It was his Grave of the Fireflies.

Just noticed this and it is awesome

Looking at the comic again, I suddenly realized it's possible to interpret the third panel as my sudden apotheosis, as evidenced by my radiant halo and Lori's reference to me as God. I don't even need to retcon the strip, as Jamie's clearly had this in mind since 2005.
