    I'm glad you decided to pull the trigger on this.
    Great stuff.

    Everroast Chicken is effing delicious, though! If someone told me the chicken on my sandwich rose and defeated satan, I would believe it. Something that yummy has to be capable of defeating the dark lord.

    Everyone has a price. Throw enough gold around and someone will risk disintegration.

    Between the comic text, the art and the title of this strip, they really knocked it out of the park.

    I love it when abuse of the English language pushes Tycho over the edge.

    Are you gonna put that chicken on a sandwich?
    Sure. Every Sunday with a tiny cup of grape juice.

    Matthew 7:26-27

    26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his sandwich on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that hoagie, and it fell with a wet thwack.”

    Gabe's earnest smile! The shards of glass in Tycho's hair! I'm giddy with laughter.

    Word play with Tycho is a fun time.

    I mean, they named the company after a cloven hoof. Not exactly being subtle about their Founder.

    This was not the comic I was expecting based on the front page preview. It was still terrific.

    I think I must be missing some context. What does Tycho have against chicken, or this particular brand of it?

    Ah, okay, word crimes. I get that.
    I thought maybe he had some special, particular hate for chicken.

    Well, now you've made it obligatory.

    He did get broken at one point, I guess he got better.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    So, in the context of the commercial, does it imply that the chicken is in a state of perpetual roasting like Tycho is having a breakdown over? Or is it just saying that said chicken has been roasted and will remain so. I mean, thats technically true, even if it's not really something you vitally need to add to a marketing campaign.

    Out of curiosity, I looked it up, and yeah, that is WAY too fancy a name for something that appears to just be some kind of reconstituted chicken loaf. Even regular, non-food crime chicken is too pedestrian for that name.

    First thing I thought of was Poyo- from the Chew comics.

    Every time there's a strip where Tycho does a rant about word use, there's a tiny swell of joy in me that I do not have adequate words to describe. Ironic, isn't it?

    Definitely one of the most well-written comics as of late.

    Effin' hilarious.

    So, after listening to them say "everroast" repeatedly on the podcast, I came to an understanding. The word is a pun on Everest. As in the the highest peak in roasted chicken. Mike and Jerry only seem to focus on the roasting forever meaning. Which is probably more funny.

    If a roast chicken rose after 3 days and defeated Satan then of course you wouldn't put it in a sandwich, you'd at least want a Brioche bun for that. A nice mayo to go with it and maybe top it off with a little of Satan's blood as a sauce.

    That's good eatin
