Lady Gaga and Conan O'Brien, Robert Pattinson and Rain are above them. But even more "impressive," perhaps, are the folks currently ranked below the guys from "Penny Arcade."
Tycho and Gabe now sit at the No. 14 spot on the TIME 100 poll of the 100 "most influential people in the world" -- ahead of Barack and Michelle Obama, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, Sarah Palin and -- yes -- even Oprah. (No one said there were logical criteria for this list.)
The dynamic duo from the webcomic empire "Penny Arcade" -- Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik -- have more than 41,000 votes. Also polling highly are Neil Gaiman (No. 23), the "Lost" creators (No. 24) and Seth MacFarlane (No. 63).
Official voting closes at 11:59 p.m. tonight. Time says "the team or individual with the most votes" will earn an automatic spot on the TIME 100 List, which will be announced April 29.
NOTE: Watch for Comic Riffs's "Penny Arcade" interview coming soon.
