[edit] Marbits

I did the obvious and one small leap. Anyone see anything else? The hourglass could stand for impatience or shortness of available time, the horseshoe is upside down like an Omega sign. The four leaf clover might indicate a prayer for luck. But I don't think these theories are supported by the dialog necessarily. And I have no idea about the diamond and star, I think they're just establishing the pattern.

I noticed that every other marbit is a religious symbol. First the six-pointed star (Judaism), then the moon (Islam), then the omega (Christianity)... and then the rainbow? Obviously a reference to Tramennis' homosexuality, but also one of inclusivity. --Wrecan 12:09, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Hm. An interesting theory, but I dunno if there is a reason to believe stupidworld religions would be referenced in Erfworld. Also, not sure if the moon without a star and the omega without the alpha qualify as religious icons. Essentially all the "standard" lucky charms got used, so they're all in there for completeness, first and foremost. - CIHN
Could the moon also be a reference to the Cheshire Cat? It just feels to me like Charlie is laughing at Jillian in that panel.--Nihila 12:12 PM, 22 August 2010
Cute idea, but I did not get the impression that Charlie was in a laughing mood. - CIHN
Well, the "Of course I did!" could be either angry or amused. And the moon looks like the Cheshire Cat grin, except in yellow and with no teeth.--Nihila 11:05 AM, 23 August 2010
It is interesting the way it's oriented. - CIHN
Also, an upside down horseshoe means you're luck is running out. That seems to be pretty obvious symbolism. --Wrecan 22:16, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
