No, the reanimated twitchy guy wasn't right. At least, not the movie version of him anyway. When he sees Dave brandishing the axe, he says "That's the axe that slayed me." Dave did not slay him with the axe. He slayed him by shooting him eight times and then only used to axe to behead him afterwards to avoid him coming back to life. Course that's all dependent on him having been dead at the time of decapitation. At least we hope he was, it took several hacks to get that thing off.

I distinctly remember reading a section towards the end dealing with the difference between gods and lesser beings (specifically Korrok and his views). It was a detailed summary of the NightmareFuel of how a chilli pepper evolved fiery acids to deter animals from eating them and yet people eat them purely because of that reason. When I read this book again that section was nowhere to be found. It's been changed.

John has horrible hallucinations, both audio and visual that force him into beliving that he is fighting demons, that are not actually there. In this theory, John and Amy do not exist, they are illusioned people that John has created because his crippling co-dependency has driven him to create anyone else that might be his best friends. His insanity is slightly manageable and does allow him to hold down a job, but whenever he gets bored, or lonely, he begins to invent these odd situations and adventures.

""One more victim, sucked in by John. You get in a room with him and you just fall into a warm pool of beer and video games and penis jokes, staring out at the universe with him and saying, "Do you believe this shit?"

** Hilariously, at least two different versions of the book do exist. One more closely resembling the original web content and one edited by the publisher sometime later.

* Supported by there being evidence of him in Ancient Egyptian mythology in one excerpt. That would be impossible if he's only been sentient for 77 years. Plus, he's having himself built in Dave's world by intermediaries. In Shit Narnia, the computer only achieved sentience after the inventory of it died. The inventor may have been just an intermediary Korrok controlled, then killed off when it was time to act for himself there. Alternatively, Korrok waited until the man died before possessing the computer.

** It could work. The riddle poses as a philosophical question of material contra symbolical values, but trying to sort out the question of if Dave's axe is the same axe even when all its parts have been changed only distracts from the practical details of how to re-deanimate a vengeful zombie effectively - according to Dave the "awful secret of the universe" is that killing monsters just to keep yourself alive is necessarily going to take priority over figuring stuff out. Here I thought the riddle was Dave trying to figure out if being Monster Dave stops him from being Dave.

[[WMG: John is a ghost.]]
He dies at the police station, right. And it's never made clear exactly how he comes back. We assume he's abusing the time looseness side effects of the Sauce to retroactively engineer his resurrection, but there has to be a specific point in time where he goes from being dead to not being dead and being captured by Shitload, and when and why does that happen? How about when Dave starts receiving John's time-displaced calls and conjures an image of him that's brought to life by the Soy Sauce, as it usually does? They might suspect, but be terrified of thinking it and making John vanish, which would explain why it never comes up in the story.
