Job Had It Easy

You'd probably be surprised the number of times I've wished that the Old Testament character of Job had a different name. The problem lies when I want to shorthand reference him, but because his name is spelled the same way as a job (noun, 1. a piece of work done as part of one's occupation or for a price), that sometimes gets tricky. And by the time I explain which job I mean in the gag ("You know Job like the guy in the Old Testament not the kind of thing you do for work"), the joke is often ruined. 

Fortunately, his name didn't seriously impact today's strip.
