So if Pebbles meets Jesus, she gets turned back into country girl? Surprised

wait, why does jesus have that lady in such dowdy, full coverage clothes when he turns her 'good'? because tat hadn't discovered feminism yet, so slutty still equaled evil and modest equaled virtuous?

They arguably have met, if one sort of stretches the definition:

This is one occasion where I think it's particularly too bad that Tat chooses to draw Pebbles without pupils in her eyes. That strip would probably be several times funnier if Pebbles' eyes were expressive enough to give us a better idea of how she was reacting to what she was seeing.

(scene continues)

The thing about that tree is, it was watered by Buddha and planted by Jesus in a hole that was "dug" by Pebbles herself using Devil Power. Three faiths converging in a single tree. OSLT.

In this strip:

Tat makes a point (no pun intended) of showing 'Nique hurting her foot on this arguably magical tree. Spends three whole panels establishing it. My initial presumption back then was that this would somehow overtly affect 'Nique, not entirely unlike the effect of a radioactive spider bite (sure, not a great analogy, but the first one that came to mind). Yet so far, the only direct effect we've seen of that moment is that it prompted 'Nique to tear off a piece of a shirt which left her with a bare midriff look which in turn gave Xanthe an excuse to stop and proclamate to her and for things to proceed from there:

Having checked through the archives to find this stuff, wow, I hadn't remembered how much more fun the strip was only a mere two years ago. And I'm not attributing the change solely to the Sisterhood's return after an absence of (checking) over four years and the subsequent "introduction" of The Patriarchy Matrix Thingamabob:

http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4051

Lots of other things were going on in the strip at that time: Li'l E lost his memory/identity, Fuchsia moved closer and closer to her ultimate break from The Devil, and so on.

And what else was happening during this timeframe? What in fact happened, for all intent and purpose, nearly at the very moment the tree grew?

(I like how casual The Devil is in speaking to this bizarre megalomaniacal manifestation, as if he receives such visitations all the time.)

Really makes you think, don't it?
