hi9: get off your high horse. "Lordy Lord" is in no way blasphemous. The word Lord is indeed a title. The Hebrew Tetragrammaton cannot be translated into English due to the Israelites superstition preventing them from saying the divine name. Thus the correct pronunciation died out and YHWH is the only known form of the divine name. Yahweh is merely speculation as to how this may have been pronounced. The use of LORD in the bible is used as a filler in place of the divine name due to the aforementioned translation difficulties and is in no way meant to replace God's name. Read the front of your bible to confirm this.The significant difference between Lord and LORD as used to refer to gods name in lieu of the correct name, is the use of capitals, and considering Scott Adams writes all his strips in capitals, you have no cause for offence. It would seem that you are a pretentious religious zealot who should just delete their browser and wait for the apocalypse while chanting hymns. In short: You're an idiot. Shut the f**k up.
Great comic though =)

Twalt10: A quick FYI. "LORD" in English is the usual translation of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton (YHWH, often written with vowels as Yahweh) which is indeed God's 'proper name.' A "figure of speech" based on this can be--and usually is--irreverent. Hope that helps.

This is the reality!! I have actually seen people rising in their career graph using fake sloganeering! Saying "God, why are people so slow in our company?!" in front of your boss will make you stand out as the only serious soul in his eyes.

LORD is not a name it's title. LORDY LORD is a figure of speach....

Don't worry, the employee seems to be addressing HIS lord, which I automatically assumed was not yours.
