I will admit that they’re not the best role-models for day-to-day life, but there’s something admirable about the bond between Jay and his hetero life-partner Silent Bob.  Through thick and thin, through the Dirt Mall to Shermer, Illinois and right through the middle of a war for Heaven and Earth, the two of them stuck together and prevailed, up to and including a hand-to-hand battle with the greatest Jedi master of the modern era.  For all their fecklessness, they even managed to achieve financial stability and build a business as a team (with a little help from Dante and Randal), and Jay tried to do right by his daughter, marking a sort of adulthood anyway, leading us to today’s inseparable query…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
