Apparently the humor of this comic lies in the fact that Metaldude's response is idiotic, since Metaldude is characterized as a deliquent and stupid rebel. However, consider Metaldude's response, obviously other measures should be considered, yet his response shows a genuinely valid thought process. Given that the writer's determine Metaldude's thought processes to conclude that failed brakes directly causes collisions, Metaldude's picks a utilitarian and cost-beneficial decision process which is typically present in intelligent persons. This conclusion would leave one with the question, "Does the series contain a stereotypical and discriminatory theme which or is that a facade for an underlying theme of heavy metal genius?" Given the rest of the series, subtlety is not probably not invovled in the global theme.
