How nice of Proxy to volunteer!

Vote for Tripp at Topwebcomics! I'll teach you the perfect cornhole throw!


@Pat - She does.

@Xailenrath - He's probably just bored.

@Ultimate the Hedgehog - These sorts of ridiculous tests are all over the bible, it seemed to fit. :)

@SnowTheHedgehog - You shouldn't worship my comic strip God. :)

@Ultimate the Hedgehog - There's a reason things are being done this way... Give it a few strips before you cast your final judgement. After that, feel free. :)

@Driftingwolf - Indeed.

@qazox - Poor Coco.

@gamekidg7 - Maybe you are taking it seriously but I like your theorizing. :)

That Proxy... so selfless.
Also, with all these "tests" God keeps giving over the millenia, don't you think we, as a species, would have passed or failed by now? I mean, WHAT is he testing FOR, exactly?

Ugh I always hated these kind of things in TV comedies. In all honesty I'm with Coco on this and find it very hard to believe God would put her in this situation.
As for Proxy she should really just shut up.

And exactly this is why, even if God would shove his existence in my face THIS VERY SECOND, I'd still not worship him. More like hate him.

@spinester: This hardly seems fitting. I can't even see this as a test. If God wanted to, he could pull Poe out himself. He's done it before (in the Bible) once. This seems like more attempts to just cause sexual frustration. This seems more like the work of Greek gods.

How is it really a test of Tripp's faith or loyalty to Poe that he actually gives in to temptation? That's not a test. It's hardly a challenge. It just seems pretty forced if you ask me.


edit: i'm taking shit way too seriously again *facepalm*

Proxy is paying a price that must be paid. We wish you luck in the sex that undoubtedly would destroy the porn industry forever. God help her if they run out of condoms.

@Ultimate the Hedgehog: While I believes in Sikhism, a monotheistic religion, my imagination does have a theory about God and/or gods: Maybe God exists as both 1, but at times divides his ideas and emotions into different parts. If you watched the Spy Kids 3D movie, the toymaker talks to different versions of himself to get an opinion or idea of what he should do. Maybe God divides himself as Greek, Roman, or Egyptian gods, putting his main form as the king of the gods, and then conversing with the rest of his emotions as the other gods and goddesses.

Also, if it is a Greek god playing with Tripp, it's Aphrodite.
The test is simple: what relationships is Tripp willing to break in order to reform the one he knew was crumbling? Tripp originally had no chance with Coco,and only after Poe came was he able to get the courage to go out with her. Only with Poe was he able to rescue her. Now that Tripp is with Coco, Poe is no longer needed. However, Tripp has come to love Poe as the uncle he never knew he had. Is Tripp willing to forget Coco in order to get Poe back?

Lastly, I think I just took it a lot more seriously.
