At least we know he cares about drugs enough to stick up for them.

Can we identify all the symbols in the third panel?

Star of David
American-ish Flag
Islamic Crescent
that triangle, if it's pink, is a symbol for homosexuality
the Equality/Equal rights sign
the Female symbol
an Ouroboros
a Pot Leaf
a Pentacle in a circle
the Prince/Artist formerly known as Prince/love symbol
a Swastika

Not sure:
The 7-armed thingy to the left
Behind the 7-armed thingy and the flag could be Odin's Cross
To the far left; that gear like thing. An actual gear, representing technology?


I think there's a white power symbol that looks like that but I'm sure there are multiple meanings.

Scratch that, wiki says it's a neopaganist symbol, sun cross

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_symbols


Good link. I think the 'gear' to the left might be the 9-sided star on the wikipedia page. Represents the Bahá'í Faith, apparently.


Back when he still used it Prince wanted to exist as some sort of nameless entity, to be known only as that symbol. So it was never really a prince or tafkap symbol. I guess right now you'd have to call it The Symbol Previously Representing The Artist Once Again Known As Prince or something...

so anybody figure out what that 7-armed symbol means?

I think it was cool that everyone in the comic had a symbol to give slick, but he has his own already, even if he isn't thinking about it. It's right above his head in the last panel. Wink

You're all missing the point. This is in fact a new "fill-in-the-punchline" strip. Fill in the punchline, and you win the prize of...(drumroll please...)...a brand new, top-of-the-line AssHat(tm)!!!

My entry: "...I like...cheese......"

Also, note that outright "humour" has taken a back seat inthe last few strips, focusing(sic?) instead on irony and social commentary. A bold and thought-provoking move for a comic strip. I'd like to see some "light relief" though. This shit's getting kinda heavy...

Not really a first for Tat, he's gone this way before, but I don't think to this extant.

Or we could call it "The Symbol to get out of a bullshit WB's record deal."
