What the hell happened to Jenkins' hair in panels 2 and 3?
Wow...it looks like Jenkins has gained 10 years and 10 lbs. At least Cross-Armed Scott looks mostly the same.
I think Jenkins bristled at the memory of retaliation.
Like getting goose bumps, or the raising of a dog's hackle.
He calmed down, and his follicles lay smooth again, by the time depicted in that fourth panel.
New Jenkins models?
Hmm. Scott, did you not have pictures of these poses and so attempted to wing it? Ah, that's alright; any further indignity we can heap upon Jenkins is surely well deserved.
Actually, I've heard that quote from Jeff Allen.
You should have had "womb" in the list.
Artist Brotip: less sideburn and more soul patch for Jenkins. Also, you forgot the hoodie zipper.
Further rhymes for groom:Womb, mushroom, zoom, loom, room, Barsoom.
* Happy groom, happy womb (wink wink)* Happy man, happy span (closest to the wife/life version)* Happy bloke, happy joke* Happy chap, happy... map?* Happy gent, happy bent ("bent" as in "a natural talent or inclination")* Happy guy, happy sigh* Happy dude, happy 'tude (attitude)* Happy male, happy tale* Happy hubby, Teletubby
The possibilities are endless. Well, not endless, but the possibilities are slightly in excess of the amount your comic implied. Another victory for Oh-God-You-Call-That-A-Rhyme Man!
Panel 2 Jenkins looks kinda like George Lucas.
New Jenkins models :)
Before I read this comic, let me just say that as soon as I saw Jenkins, and as soon as I saw that he was speaking, I immediately smiled.
Maybe the same thing that happened to his ear?
fine accusatory and complacent jenkins's!maybe complacent is not correct, bla-zay? like the Australians say?
looks like everyone gained a couple pounds in the second frame ;^)
On another note, will you make us a 12-month calendar? It can be various Jenkins' poses and it will be known as "12 Months of Jenkins"
I'll let your imagination think of poses, but Easter Bunny and Santa outfits come to mind.
Happy groom or face your doom?
I guess that works.
Happy Spouse, Happy House.
I believe in this politically correct age the saying is now "Happy spouse, happy house." However, it will only be said by husbands about their wives.
I always wondered what kind of woman would marry Jenkins (well, not "always," I mean, just since I started reading this comic.) Now I know that she is a monster so horrible that merely discussing her ages him terribly.
Actionable! Bad rhymer!
I almost think that an acceptable rhyme for husband could be "dustbin," but that seems like it only re-inforces the point you were making.
@DG: "You, who wear his beard!"
A kinder, gentler Jenkins.
Obviously, the new Jenkins sucks as much as the old one.
Jenkins kept his glasses on the whole time. A B.I. first?
"If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."
You can object to it, if you really feel the need, but it will neither save you, nor invalidate the rule.
