greatest comic yet
all the imagery was amazing, especially the last one

can't the INS or family and children services or some special interest PAC group do something to you for press-ganging orange-skinned minority midgets into improper handling of your sausage?

"The waving of the sausage scepter!" Scott, you have truly inspired me. I shall now go and get a sausage scepter of my own, thereby ruining my social life forever. YAY!

Fortunately, a small processing fee and a trip to your local court of record can solve the middle-name problem. As for the sausages, however....

You must name your child Oscar.

Have to say I love the comic however the second panel has now ruined one of my favourite songs for ever; Hurt.

...And you could have it all, my empire of pork!

...and only now do I get the "sausage sceptre" joke. I feel stupid. In my defence, I did first read this when I was younger.

May 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPom Rania

If you have read it twice, the first time would always be "when you were younger".

My friend's initials spell FAG. Don't feel bad RAG.

Interesting, my middle name is also Oscar, which also came from my grandpa.

Glad my last name's not Meyer, that would lead to some annoying conversations.

Sausage Scepter! LMFAO. I so want one!

July 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRhys

my initials are std.

July 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

My initials spell SC(u)M and my middle name is Christian (which I am, so I don't mind that part, but most of the people I know named Christian I haven't liked).

My middle name should have been William (after William Wallace who I am supposedly related to; that's my Dad's middle name for that reason) and then my initials would spell SW(i)M, which is one of my favorite things to do. Lame sauce.

You could have been called N.O. Brain

i once knew a girl whose initials spelled ASS.

July 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermisnomer

I've got a friend whose last name is Xavier, and whose first initial is "S"... and he recently changed his middle name to one starting with "E", making his initials "SEX".

Needless to say, I'm jealous.

i have a friend whoose initials are C.R.A.P and that is what they put on his crib at the nursery

I laughed so hard at panel three that I accidentally squeezed my legs on my testes causing pain and yet I was still laughing

Also, my initials (not including middle name) spell EW

August 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIcalasari

My mom's initials are DAM. I also no someone whose initials are PMS.
Are all ones of people I've met. I also know a guy named Rush Moore.

My friend Ben has two middle names, Donald and Samuel, After his mother's father, and his fathers dead brother. His last name is McGwire

What a coincidence, that's exactly what I thought when I read your comment.

December 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnon

I'm currently reading the archive from the start for the first time, and that bloke on the right's first pose is the funniest I've come across so far.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

my initials spell out RGB. a popular color mode, but nothing else

January 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersomeone

Ok, this one made me laugh so hard I cried.

May 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMisa

My middle name is only a little unusual (for a first name, considering it's typically a last name)
However, I got the joy of being given a SECOND middle name, also one that's a last name.
(Guess which one I usually give)

August 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWaladil

My name initials are GTB. If i'm not wrong, there is a Ferrari with this in the name somewhere lol

Rhys... Please do NOT say this... I can't imagine someone waving a sausage scepter...

it's... just... oh god... please...


August 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDarth GTB

My initials are RIP. I think it's awesome. I like to think that, whenever and wherever I die, I'll be at peace automatically.
I've always been a morbid person, even when I was a child...

November 18, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterthinker3

Sausage scepter... Am I the only one 's mind went into the gutter at this point?

April 22, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterqwerty

@Darth GTB
You have some cool initials, which happen to also be the initials of my favorite person in the world.

August 13, 2014 | Unregistered Commentersirgren
