Luci Phurr’s Imps “Calls & Punishment” #3

Fascinating Fact #A113:  The music being piped through Pain’s ears is a little known tune written by the Devil.  If you can get a hold of that single on vinyl and play it backwards at 33 rpm, it actually says “I love the Beatles.”

If you get the LP version and play that one backwards at 45 rpm, it says “I love Black Sabbath.”

If you have no idea what 33 and 45 rpm means, it’s what MP3s were called before you were born.

If you don’t know who the Beatles and Black Sabbath are, I got nuthin’.

    I did exclusive modeling for the drool. I was asleep at the time.

    But so far I don’t think anything will come out of his head after 30 minutes.

  4. dale_mettam

    Nothing of use, anyway.

    Does he even have a brain?

  6. dale_mettam

    There’s a school of thought that believes Pain works pretty exclusively on instinct alone. Kinda like a cat. If he does have a brain, it’s likely very small.

    Wait, are we talking about me or Pain?

    First off, loving the comic. But man, the texts at the bottom kill me. If you dont know who the Beatles or Black Sabbath are…I got nuthin. Great humor mate. Keep it up.

    As someone who was at the transition through all of those formats, gotta say that your humor is right on.

    I’m I the only one to realize that the Fact number came from Wall-e? Pixar movies are soo awesome. :3

  12. dale_mettam

    Hey Art Wolf, there are LOTS of little references to things in the comic strips and the comments. I think you are the first to point out that one though. 😀

    OK! Moozakitis is setting in!

    Beatles? Black Sabbath? Weren’t they sometime between Mozart and Amadeus?
