Mammons being a real word...

I actually looked up mammons and found it interesting lol! The fact that it's wealth by evil influence and how the mammons are made, seems ironic. Hey Jason, did you do that on purpose or was that unintentional?

You know the exchange page? He wrote that mammons is a real word there and ask us to look ut up. So I am rather sure it was on purpose.

Yeah, that's the whole reason why I looked up the word lol!

Hebrew

Its Hebrew for wealth/material possesions. I think it had to do with a certain god mentioned in the torah (as a false god), and ended up being associated with evil in the new testement.

For the first time ever, I've seen the term 'mammon' used in real life (outside this comic, I mean). In a summer movie preview article in my newspaper, they gave all the upcoming movies a 'mammon rating' on a scale of 0 to 10.

Link to the online article:
"http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20060429.PREVIEW29/TPStory/TPEntertainment/"

When I read the article, I thought to myself, "Hey, it's almost like they're listing ticket prices for the Spider Cliff cinema." Heh, heh.

hehe, yea its something of a coincidence because the writer chose the word because it was the name of some character in a movie last year or two years ago or something and because there is (according to the writers words) "some religiousy in the air." as far as the movies go.
