I wonder if we'll ever see a Buddha fanboy. Maybe a college sophomore who had her life changed reading Siddartha?

I'm getting meaning from this strip.

Did Tat intend to put meaning into this strip?

Does it matter? Would the meaning magically go away if Tat didn't intend it?

Yes, Tat meant to put meaning in the strip. The wisdom of the Bood shall be revealed in the most obscure, yet most obvious place, I guess. I don't know anything though, lol

Reminds me of this:

Somebody wrote:
Toward the end of his life, the Buddha took his disciples to a quiet pond for instruction. As they had done so many times before, the Buddha’s followers sat in a small circle around him, and waited for the teaching.

But this time the Buddha had no words. He reached into the muck and pulled up a lotus flower. And he held it silently before them, its roots dripping mud and water.

The disciples were greatly confused. Buddha quietly displayed the lotus to each of them. In turn, the disciples did their best to expound upon the meaning of the flower: what it symbollized, and how it fit into the body of Buddha’s teaching.

When at last the Buddha came to his follower Mahakasyapa, the disciple suddenly understood. He smiled and began to laugh. Buddha handed the lotus to Mahakasyapa and began to speak.

“What can be said I have said to you,” smiled the Buddha, “and what cannot be said, I have given to Mahakashyapa.”

Mahakashyapa became Buddha’s successor from that day forward.

Beautiful, thank you for that. This anecdote made my day. ^_^

I guess it could work... most of the fanboys are fake hollow versions of the originals... I guess a buddhist who was stupid enough to worship buddha would be right up that alley.
