>Jesus Was a Janitor

>
This was not the comic strip I thought I was going to publish today. I had another idea ready that Mom gave me last week, but this one kept popping into my mind on the way in, so here it is. The trick for this one was how to present it, so I went with two janitors. Then, I went back and added in the Bible verse reference for those that might not immediately make the connection. You did, though, right?

>The Best

>
One of the challenges about creating a comic strip is giving each cartoon a name that is descriptive, but does not give away the final punchline. Today’s is a good example of that challenge. I suppose I could have named each one of the auto-complete series a name starting with Auto-Complete and then the mistyped word. However, when I started it, I did not know it would be a multi-day series. So, I could have called today’s strip “Good Week,” but I decided a better name would be the final text and the ambiguity introduced there. Why? What would you have called it?

>Piers

Today’s auto-correct idea came straight from a pair of messages passed through our internal company Facebook-like application. As always, when auto-correct is turned on, and you mistype even one letter, you never know what word will be suggested, I guess someone typed in ‘pi’ and accepted the proposed word of ‘piers’ when they wanted to write ‘peers.’

>Next Great Thing

>
Here’s an example of me digging until I found something buried. The only idea listed in my file was Windows 3 X 3. So I needed to decide why the characters would even bring that up and then where it would lead. So I wrote that joke in, then added something about Mac OS, then finally found that it was about predicting the next great thing that would come along in 2011.
