I'm a recent transplant to Texas. I live in Dallas now and I've been here for almost three years. The things I see here continue to surprise me. Today's comic comes out of something I saw driving to work a few weeks back. I was in my car and stopped at a traffic light. This large, beat-up, green pickup truck pulls up next to me with two teenagers inside it. Hanging on the back window, where usually, around here anyway, I'd see a shotgun or several there was a large broadsword hanging there instead. It was huge and the handle was elaborate. You'd need at least two hands to lift the thing. As they pulled away once the light turned green I saw a big "JESUS" sticker on the back bumper. The series of life events that brought a massive sword to be hanging the window of a beat-up old pickup somewhere in Texas kept me fascinated for the rest of my commute.
