Comic for Saturday, May 17, 2003

 I thought Elliot getting road rage and Sarah being embarrassed by it might become a recurring thing. Spoiler warning: NOPE.

Assuming one has heard of it, this is an obvious parody of Dragonheart. I was a big fan of Dragonheart, but for entirely superficial reasons. It was medieval fantasy and was one of the first movies with a really good (for its time) CGI dragon. THAT'S CHEATING, DARN IT.

Unlike Elliot's anger while driving, Jason D. Poit is gets mentioned a few more times. I'm pretty sure he's supposed to be an amalgamation of male actors I liked at the time. If I had to guess, AND I DO, I would guess that his name was a convoluted reference to Jason Lee, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt.

I'm not sure which actors I would merge these days, but Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and and Chris Hemsworth would probably be... Huh. Okay, I guess I do know who I would merge, and they're all very strangely named Chris. Seriously, what the hell? In any case, that doesn't work because of Chris-type people I know in real life, so... I dunno, "Evan Prattworth"?
