"I stand corrected" (Could it be, you too will have the *cool espression" t-shirts at Target just like Napoleon Dynamite's?
P.S. I love birds... especially chicken. Chicken, if it tastes like tuna... time to throw it out.
Hahahahahaha I just had to echo the 3rd panel praise. That one made me laugh 'til I cried. Fantastic comic.
I already crack up every time I see panel 3, and just now I noticed that Scott's right arm isn't visible... it must be just hanging there at his side.
You should TOTALLY make that face part of a wallpaper!!!Everyone could use a good laugh whenever they log onto their computer.I don't think it would ever get old.
I see I'm late to the party, but wow... panel three. I enjoy this strip immensely, but I don't usually laugh out loud.
my little sister is actually terrified of birds! I will try your basic instructions, sir.
dofnupI totally understand . . . It's almost like my fear of zombies eating me in my sleep, or how I hate ladybugs, and butterflies are weird, anyway
Birds DO eat grapes. I have a grapevine in my backyard, which is speckled with purple bird droppings in the summer.
Scott, as a way of making you face your fear, I'd like to draw your attention http://www.flickr.com/photos/doomhammer/3296308646/" rel="nofollow">here to the following photo I took, of a wild parrot contemplating the tastiness of my left eyeball.
Also, the photos following that one show a flock of wild parrots descending on an unsuspecting child.
I once saw a documentary about some place--didn't see it from the beginning--that was sparsely forested. There was this snake climbing a tree, & I thought "lucky there are so few trees, so the snakes can't fall on people". At that moment, the snake flattened out and GLIDED quite a distance to the next tree! Of course, it could also land on some unsuspecting critter. I'm certain I had the exact same expression on my face as in panel 3, & I'm not even especially afraid of snakes! I laughed upraoriously! Thanks!
Hmm, it's like my fear of spiders...Pity they're not endangered as well...Say, if I see a big, hairy, horrible spider in the room, I will stare uncertainly at it, back away slowly, and call for someone to get rid of it. That's my way, people.Oh, the face in panel 3! Instant Crack up - just add the terrified face of Scott Meyer seeing a bird eat a grape.Imagine if he knew that Ravens like eyes, good thing those are endangered, the only ones I've seen are in the Tower of London, their wings are clipped, for i'ts said that if a Raven leaves the tower, London will fall.No pressure then, eh?
Third panel of this strip ties the "Your hide will make a fine poncho" panel (How to Fake a Smile) for my favorite drawing.
I'm not sure what you all see in panel 3, but it reminds me of Belinda, my inflatable girlfriend....
I'm kind of surprised there was no Alfred Hitchcock reference in this strip, I was totally expecting it! You let me down, man, you let me down. Now I must release my army of pigeons upon you!
That 3rd panel may be the single funniest image I have ever seen in my life.
expression in panel 3..priceless!
I also must say, that expression in Panel 3 is awesome. *Hornbill swoops in for grape* (D8)
Haha, i think panel 3 is especially good because his eyes actually look like juicy grapes... or olives with pimentos, begging to be plucked out.
wow! 3 pages for panel 3!
it's realy awesome!
best expression so far in BI!
i must see it again in some of the next instructions!
I have a pet parrotlet and she is truly terrifying. I have never tried feeding her a grape, but her previous owner said they make her sleepy =)
