    Lio bought a cheap magic book at the dollar store and instead of the spell turning him into what he wanted to turn into, it turned him into an egg beater.

    He’s remembering the sequence of events that led up to the final panel: He bought a spell book at the dollar store, and the spell he cast turned him into an egg beater.

    It’s entirely possible that there’s something the name of which is similar to “eggbeater” that he was trying to turn into, but that seems like pretty deep analysis for a Lio strip.

    Maybe there’s something going on like the hoary “Genie, make me an ice cream sundae” joke - “I want to be able to beat up bad eggs”?

    World Beater => Egg Beater ?

    Master of the Universe => Mixer of the Universe ?

    yes .. it’s a ‘ya get what you pay for’ joke.

    “I wanna be able to beat anyone!”

    I like Dave Van Domelen’s suggestion of what the spell Lio was TRYING to cast was, but, fundamentally, I think it doesn’t matter — it’s just a general warning against getting your grimoire at a dollar store.

    As any number of foot-tall piano players could tell you.

    I like Bill’s title.
