Halloween Be Thy Name

Seen in today’s newspaper:

Thy name. It’s Thy name. Oh, whatever.

Typo aside, Joshua Fruhlinger, as always, has the best analysis of the comic:

We all know that Billy is an insufferable dick and so his smile can’t represent anything noble or good. The question is: How long a game is he playing here? Is he smug because he’s about to rat Jeffy out to their parents for sullying of the Lord’s Prayer with references to a holiday that celebrates demons and ghouls? Or is he smiling because Jeffy has just accidentally pledged his soul to the Dark Lord Satan, and now Billy won’t have to spend time with him in heaven?

Satan. It’s always about Satan. Praise Satan.
