I thought yesterday's comic, Comic 1588, worked pretty well, mostly because it was a good comic!

But I think the comic also worked because the punchline "I am scared of oblivion", much like "Christ, what an asshole," is a great universal punchline.

It works for everything!

Let me show you a few examples and I think you'll see what I'm talking about:

Did you Ryan North hides secret jokes everywhere he goes? Not unlike a certain rodent except with acorns instead of jokes.
