Mormon Secret Signs

We were recently at Disneyland and played this very game. Based on the other guys in BYU t-shirts and women in capris giving our family weird looks, I'm guessing most Mormons at the "happiest place on earth" do the same thing.

Of course there are other clues you can look for other than large clans, knee length shorts, and BYU paraphernalia in identifying a fellow Mormon at a Disney park. There's also the lack of Mickey ears (we're far too practical to blow $25 on something so frivolous) as well as a backpack full of outside-the-park snacks (again, on account of our cheapness).

Is there anything else that I'm missing?

Jedi Mind Tricks

I love pretending to be a Jedi. I can't help but make the little swishing movement every time I approach a store front with automatic doors.

Manna

After 40 years, I'm sure manna got pretty old. Of course, it was still preferable to quail.

I was working on a tight deadline with this one, otherwise I'd like to think I would have come up with a better title for the cookbook. Maybe you can have a crack at it.

One on One

It seems a little unfair that these two are playing winners out, doesn't it? Furthermore, if they are playing one-on-one street ball, chances are each basket is worth one point (threes are worth two). Making this an even more lopsided game than previously thought.

Young Women Theme

If you've every been in a Young Women's meeting or activity, you have a sense of how impressive it is to hear a group of Young Women recite the Young Women Theme.

P-Day Basketball

It's wholly appropriate that I run this strip on the same day as the NCAA national basketball finals. Go, fight, win!

Non-masters of Modesty

I got to tell you, guys, today's gag was so much fun to draw! Although, if you had told 10-year-old me that I would draw a He Man comic for my blog before I'd get around to drawing a GI Joe comic, I never would have believed you.*

While we're one the subject of He Man, let me get some things off my chest since this will likely be the only chance I'll every get to talk about this small but important part of my childhood.
  • While He Man was awesome, Prince Adam was the worst.
  • Wait, I take it back. Orko was the worst.
  • All three of the major 80s cartoons based on boy toys (GI Joe, He Man, and Transformers) misused their villains. Cobra Commander, Skeletor, and Megatron were whiny idiots in their respective shows--but of the three, Skeletor has the most to complain about. Dude had a skull for a head! He should have been the baddest baddie there ever was, instead he's defeated in the Christmas special when some orphan kid throws a snowball in his face.
  • When it came to cartoons, the 80s were a barren wasteland until Duck Tales premiered late in the decade. After that, it was really hard to go back to the likes of Masters of the Universe.**
  • The guy to the left of He Man is named Stratos. He can fly because he strapped wings to his arms. And as ridiculous as that sounds, he was one of the more normal He Man action figures. Plus, he rocked a pretty sweet Brigham Young beard.
  • Seriously, there were Bee Man, Moss Man, and Skunk Man action figures--it was a messed up toyline.
  • Despite the silliness of it all, I loved it so much! The Christmas I got He Man, Skeletor, and Castle Greyskull might have been the best Christmas ever.
*I also would have asked you just what on earth a blog was.

**It was pretty much impossible once Batman: The Animated Series premiered.
