Jick is the creator and supreme deity of the Kingdom of Loathing. Since early 2003, KoL has been an uncannily popular and successful MMORPG. Jick is also the head of Asymmetric Publications.
Jick does two weekly Radio KoL shows: "120 Minutes of (Anything) with Jick and Mr Skullhead" (9 PM EST, Mondays) and "The Jick Show" (11 PM EST, Thursdays). During the Thursday shows, Riff and Hotstuff often accompany Jick.
Jick's real name is Zachary Johnson. He is also known as El Perezoso and, in times immemorial, Zurd.
Jick's birthday is 7/7/1976. He announced that he turned 31 on 7/7/07 on the 9/6/07 radio show.
Jick's name appears purple or red in chat. He collects flyswatter; to view his collection, check out his Display Case.
Jick's favorite food is conebread, and his favorite booze is Infinitesimal IPA. He is in his own clan called Styrofoam Nuns, Inc. (previously Jumbucks in a Tuckerbag, The Clapboard Posterhangers, Clan Chefboy, in reverse chronological order).
In the early morning hours of February 15, 2006, Jick announced on Radio KoL that he was going to be married to his girlfriend Phoenix (#4403) on February 16.
When viewing his profile, it used to say "This player is currently Jick." due to the fact that during ascension testing, players who had ascended had profiles which said "'Sorry, this player is currently helping Jick test the ascension code, and his or her profile cannot be viewed." Many pointed out the problem of Jick assisting Jick, and it was changed.
When viewing Jick's profile, if you have a psychoanalytic jar in inventory, and the remainder of your player ID number divided by 23 is today's "magic number", you will see a "Use psychoanalytic jar on him" button. Clicking this will give you a jar of psychoses (Jick). See the jar's page for more information about the magic number. Attempting to analyze Jick more than once in a day results in "You've already performed one especially complicated psychoanalysis today. That's quite enough.". Ascending afterward, and acquiring a second psychoanalytic jar, allows you to create a second jar of psychoses (Jick) in the same day.
Players cannot buff Jick. Attempting to do so results in this message:
- Hi -- thanks for trying to buff me, but I don't really need it.
- - Jick
It is also impossible to brick Jick. Attempting to do so results in this message:
- Brick is no longer jickable. It was fun while it lasted.
It is, however, possible to use a roll of toilet paper, a disintegrating sheet music, a wang, a cream pie, and a foam dart on Jick for now. In addition, you can use a flavored foot massage oil to massage Jick's lower extremities.
Jick can change all facets of his character, including his stats and class, at will.
