Its a horrible play on words. Hes a praying mantis, so they are into religion, hence its probably in said religion to eat their mates.So if he was an atheist he would not need to adhere to such tradition.But that is just thinking it a little too much. lol
Sorry, but I don't see how that can be Tom. Tom does not look like that at all, you are probably one of those people who say all Asians/blacks/whites look the same. Just because one rock was named in the show it does not make all rocks suddenly be related to ponies. The comic was hilarious nonetheless. PS: The only one that will be able to correct my logic would be the artist himself.
