1086: Eyelash Wish Log
|Eyelash Wish Log|
Title text: Ooh, another one. Uh ... the ability to alter any coefficients of friction at will during sporting events.
This comic is based on the situation that when someone's eyelash falls out, that person can make a wish on it. This comic appears to be a page from the fictitious Wish Bureau in charge of granting said wishes. And of course the Wisher is Black Hat and he has quite a few wishes, most of them based on the previous wish. A common trope in fiction is that wishing for more wishes is prohibited and for many of his wishes Black Hat attempts to circumvent that.
March 7's wish is a reference to Nate Silver, who is a former writer for Baseball Prospectus working on predicting baseball players' stats and now writes for Five Thirty Eight in which he predicts the outcome of elections based on polling data.
And April 22's wish is a reference to the cartoon and video game, Pokemon. A pokéball can be thrown at a Pokémon (or in this case, an annoying pet) to capture it and seal it indefinitely.add a comment!
