That god person has similar conversational skills as me...you listen until someone says an interesting word....and then spin off into your own little world.

Only his 'little word' is bigger then mine.

Maybe the idea is to accept it, and move on.

What are Slick's sins, really?

Other than trying to sell his soul to the devil the only other things he does is lusting after women, looking at porn, doing drugs, and wanting to be rich and famous.

Those are some amazingly human sins, sins that if put in the right perspective really aren't all that sinful. Who here hasn't at least tried drugs? I bet not a lot of you. Who hasn't looked at porn? Even the girls for christ sake! Who the fuck doesn't want to be rich and famous? I don't even want to hear someone say they don't.

And lusting after women? Come on, he's been trying to get Monique for years now, trying and failing. A guy can't continue to be a one woman man (and this goes vice versa for women) if he isn't getting anything back from his affections. A relationship is a two way street, it's give and take, if one person is giving and never receiving, and the other is only taking and never giving then can you really call that a relationship?

I think if anything, god is affectionately bemused by Slick's situation and just waiting around for Slick to finally realize "Hey wait a second... am I really all that bad, what are my sins in the blink of god's eye?" Or I guess in the shifting from one hand puppet to the next.

That leopard is just being a leopard, having a good time being all spotted. Maybe Slick should learn to do the same.


agree 100%

I'm sure God isn't angry at anyone for not going to church or having sex before marriage.

Drugs are bad, m'kay?
and smoking's just nasty. Smells bad, creates waste, does bad things to your health short and long term. Horrid.

Drinking, however, is the cause of and solution to all of life's problems!
... and it's not a drug. It's an intoxicant!






and porn is just entertainment.

Or maybe from the point of view of this strip, God is just a childish idiot, which means we should all be Buddhists.

Don't you watch Soutpark? God is a buddhist.

I think this is how Tat sees god, such as God not caring about the wishes or doubts of others, just going along for his own amusement becaue he's full of himself. Or he's really being sincere and funny at the same time, because I have to admit, this is a cult-classic.

It isn't that god's doing anything deep.

it's just that he's in a weird mood, and has been for quite a few strips.

too much sugar.

I'm insightful all the time, I'm just rarely so straight forward about it.

I honestly don't get it. Is the god belittling Slick's sincere admission? What was the point of the god's behavior here? A bit of actual help might have been more appropriate. I don't know what those of you who claim to love this particular strip are seeing in it.


Ok, first off, in the cast of characters, he is 'God', not 'the god'. Your personal beliefs or anyone else's in the existence of such a being is moot. You don't say 'the Slick' or 'the Monique'. Only 'the dragon' would be referred to specifically with a definite article.

Secondly, God isn't belittling anyone, if anything he's saying that Slick is who he is.
