I studied philosophy at university and I had a lecturer who had a long, untrimmed beard and hair.
He looked a lot like the guy in today's comic.

I have all my comics available as prints, as well as a seemingly random assortment of other products.

You can be the first to scare the living daylights out of me by recognizing me in public.
I'm told I do a fantastic double-take.
