"Your hide will make a fine poncho!"LOL, I love that one."I shall wear your face as a hat!" would also work.
I fell out of my chiar laughing at the third panel for about 10 minutes.
I just died of laughter XD sadly, my smile is insanely similar to panel 3. Which is why I rarely ever smile in public.
I laughed so hard that not only did I cry, but I also cracked one of my ribs in the process. Even then, I couldnt stop laughing.
Third panel made my choke on my spit as I laughed.It looks so much like my smile!
Why did you make me piss my pants (laughing of course, not from incontinence)? Now I'll have to go through the day with wet pants and smile all the while.
I'm reading this on my iPhone at work, zooming in on each frame one at a time. I giggles at frame two. Frame three had me laughing uncontrollably when i saw his eyes. Oh wow, good stuff
This made me laugh so hard that my ears hurt now.
I have the following conversation way too often.Photographer: Smile!Me: I am smiling.
mine is realy cute ppl like my smile alote... bt it was realy hilarious made me laugh alot
haha that's perfect!
I have a fake-looking smile, too. This is helpful!
That was the best! I laughed through every panel, and then laughed uncontrollably for five minutes afterwards. Pure genius.
New favorite BI...so glad I started reading from the bottom-up!"Won't that be nice?" totally caught me off-guard, and I nearly choked on spittle.I can normally keep my laughter low enough for an office environment, but if there's more like this I maybe shouldn't read these at work!Kudos.
Holy hell, I know it's been years now, but I finally found the photo that the "Your hide will make a fine poncho!" face was based on: http://thinkprogress.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/E.W.-Jackson-STAND.jpg
I was something familiar to this face. http://www.tengbom.se/en-US/about-tengbom/news/2013-11/262/bo-ringdahl-new-ceo-of-tengbomAnd suddenly I remembered this strip.
So. I cannot stop laughing right now. I just glance at the faces and start again. I cannot breath.
Also, each comment I read leads to me remembering the drawings and it starts again...
I came back to look at this one... And I burst out laughing again before finishing the first panel. One of, nay, the best of your comics.
I have this one posted in my cubicle at work. Brightens even the worst day of meetings, last minute changes, and co-workers who can't catch a clue with sticky gloves.
Thanks, Scott. You're brilliant!
