A couple of elements came together for this comic strip. I was thinking about Lord of the Flies and the pig head on a stick in that story. I was also thinking about how some native cultures ask their hunted prey for forgiveness for killing them. Then I thought about the modern white asshole’s mantra of “don’t judge me, dude” and the religious person’s “only God can judge” saying.
There’s a joke that I heard a while ago that I really liked that went:
Guy 1: I’m just as good as the other guy.
Guy 2: Yeah, but the other guy’s an asshole.
