The-Artist-Formerly-Known-As-Princianism is a religion I can fully support, along with Laplacianism. Or is that just any old upside down triangle?

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 liek that but I'm sure there are multiple meanings.

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

Off all the things that he thinks about and encounters during the day, at night he thinks of nothing.

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.

I don't think it's that - I think there is too much stuff, so much so that he doesn't know what to think about any more. Nice to see that it's Squig in there sticking up for the drugs :)

Hm.

It really does seem like Slick has changed permanently.

Also, I love Buddha.
