New Chick Tract!

Moving on Up! It may not be all that original, but it's pretty hard to beat for sheer humor value. There are so many awesome things here...well, three things, mainly, but they all rule:

1. The picture of the mother in the third panel: we must always believe what scientists say. Others claim to know, but they are the only ones who guide us." The expression of religious rapture on her face really sells it.

2. The idiosyncratic overview of the evolutionary process, especially about "how "the greatest event of all time" was when "we lost our tails," suggesting that ChickCo may be confusing evolution with Dragon Ball Z.

3. The bizarre characterization of Tyler, whose responses to his mother's explanations are so credulous as to sound sarcastic more than anything else. Your ideas intrigue me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter, you expect to hear him say. The absolute best thing, of course, is this:

Hell yes.
