Why do the crab people get a pass?

"Crab people! Crab people! Crab people!"

Also, aren't the Knights of Malta under the control of the Vatican?

Well, they're under the control of a Vatican, but I've said too much already ...

But.. But.. how do you know that the current crisis isn't engineered by any of those groups?.

That's the problem with arguing against people who believe in a all-powerful, all-controlling entity. They can just make up motivations to explain observations that don't fit their theory.

Given where you've posted this, I assume the mouse-over mentioned snopes? Because I don't see any mention in the text of the letter itself.

Snopes (the website, not the pretend person) does control the government via the moon's mind-control ray, so it is mentioned in the last bit.

Nope - this is "Sightings," not "Snopes Spotting."

Quote:
Sightings of urban legends in the print media, films, television programs, and books.
Granted, a webcomic doesn't technically fall under any of the above, but this thread still seemed to be most appropriate.

The mouseover text says "Are you ok? Do you need help?"
