** Incidentally, it's currently "Jonathan Gabriel". As a Jonathan myself, I've had it mistaken for "Johnathan" lots of times. If he goes by "Jon"....

** Given Tycho's attitude in the newsposts to "dreaded Continuity", the answer is probably "whatever's funnier at the time".

** [[http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/07/12 These]] [[http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/01/11 two]] among others seem to suggest that the Duo and their wives live in one house.

** Originally, the characters had no names, "Jack" and "John" being jokingly suggested as make-shifts- their genericness and similarity a reflection of how little interest the creators had in naming the character- and were immediately abandoned. Over time, the characters began to increasingly reflect the creators (or, at least, to parody them), to the point where they gained the creators' names. Giving Gabe "John" as a forename was a ContinuityNod, of sorts, to the earlier strip, which was retained and eventually became canon.

Thought of another one.

** Then again, maybe it only seems that sturdy to Gabe because of his WeaksauceWeakness [[http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/08/05 to cardboard.]](Which might actually make it FridgeBrilliance.)

Adding some theories. Nothing to see here.
to:
** The first appearance of the tube, seen [[http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/10/30 here]], suggests that the tube was based on a real tube Gabe found in the dumpster outside of their apartment. [[BatterUp He used it more like a baseball bat.]] It was [[http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2003/01/15 a few months later]] that they decided to marry the tube with the samurai motif. So it is clearly of shipping tube sturdiness.

Added DiffLines:
**Another possibility is that the first example takes place in their work office, and by the time of the second example (two years later) Gabe had moved frostmourne to his home (possibly because it was too awesome for his office?).

** Probably they started as roommates, then after they got married (in and out of character) they're not anymore.

*So are Gabe and Tycho roommates? 'Cause there are strips like [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/11/10/ this one]] where they talk about '''our''' epic weapons, but then there's [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/5/10/ this one]] where Gabe tells Tycho something that Tycho would know about if they lived together. What do you guys think?
