So is the killer the guy in the dark suit? It's either him you, Scott. It's okay, I won't tell.

Ah, the smoking jacket. Every time I see it, I love this comic a little more.

I demand more smoking jacket.

its always the guy with the fez.. hehe

I feel like there should be a fifth panel to this one.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBuhrian

Except that one time...

Then it was the butler. But he got off on a technicality.

Scott seems to have invented a new game - No-Cluedo! I think I have worked it out - it was the guy with the fez, in the libray, with a barbed cat's penis.

Oh, how factoids have come back to haunt me, mikef! Why, oh, why?!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAndy

Nice! I'm enjoying the move away from workplace humour to the slightly surreal.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMDCore

thanks for the visual, mikef!

It's always the butler that's the killer...

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChels

Who was the victim? OMG - IT'S KENNY! THE BASTARD!

Here, here, MDCore. - The artist has stepped out of his comfort zone here, and brought us knowledge on a *truly* new subject. I am educated, entertained, and impressed.

this entire installment is taking on a slightly hammy maudlin feel, making it more surreal for me, as i am listening to vnv nation while reading this...heavy for light? hmmm...i'm convinced it must have been someone not represented as being "in the room". i think it was a wing hoe in the garden with a bag of fertilizer.

The copyright says that it is copyright two thousand and eight but actually it is really only two thousand and nine. Perhaps this is a subtle plot point.

The smoking jacket returns! Oh and love the fez on Wakko (or is he Yakko?). When reading Ric's lines in the third panel, I laughed so hard I actually farted a little. Wife was like, "Now what, reading B.I. again?" complete with eyeroll. God, I love this comic.

@Buhrian: Clearly, the *reason* there's no 5th panel is because after drawing the 4th, Scott was stabbed in the back by the guy in the dark suit, who is clearly the *real* murderer.

Thus revealing the murderer!

@Kira I agree, we need more smoking jacket! but what would have made this strip EVEN MORE surreal (sorry for shouting, folks, but it wouldn't let me do SMALL CAPS) is if Rick were wearing the Magnificent Robe (instead of his Mark Twain costume). I'm just sayin'...

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

The return of the smoking jacket! Who cares what else is in the strip... :)

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRob

Hehehehe! Yes! The smoking jacket! I knew it was going to be good the second I saw that smoking jacket. It's like cowbell. Gotta have more smoking jacket!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

When will the luchador mask return?

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIsaac

Good to see I'm not the only smoking jacket fan!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKira

The smoking jacket! I like how you were wearing it in the picture by the coffin in the "Inside Joke" strip.

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSad Ist

Awesome use of the smoking jacket. The other costumes are spot-on, too. Pure win!

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRufusMcLaser

Everyone always knows it's the dude with the fez that does it. When you look at the butler's wardrobe, they have a secret compartment to hide their fez.

Smoking jacket = epic

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChels

Smoking jacket? He looks like Ming the Merciless in a black T and a dressing gown! Are those Tae Kwon Do pants? The only thing murdered here was sartorial elegance... actually, that wierd tie on the guy with the suspenders* suggests to me he had to quickly put them back on and tied them around this neck, so it was him. At least it should be for wearing elastic on the outside of clothing.

* braces to us brits

@basexperience: Oh, EXCUUUUUUSSSEEEEEE us ignorant Americans for not knowing the difference between a smoking jacket and a dressing gown! This is a COMIC and we LOVE it and if you DON'T, then you needn't comment... you may go your merry way and leave us to love it! Buh-bye, now...

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

"@basexperience "that weird tie"? ... you, sir, have obviously never visited the American South. In the 19th century. Still, my point is valid.

The smoking jacket...might be just a little too large to fit the stereotype, but that's just for comfort, right, Scott?

But if we find the getaway mini-car, we've got the fez guy dead to rights.

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWisteriam this strip. now i can be a good detective. but this instruction should have been more than just four panel because all the instruction you need cannot be filled in just four panel...

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJoseph Highborn

It's a simple matter of finding who is the butler. Then all things fall into place.

February 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNot-So-Sexy Sadie

In the third panel it sounds like Scott was murdered. Yet he doesn't seem to be a ghost. I'm a little confused...

April 25, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfairywaif

Of course it was the guy with the fez. It's always the guy with the fez. That's why it's called 'to confess', from the latin 'with'+'fez'.

Could this be something like "How to Host a Murder?"

I love that this comic made me think of Hercule Poirot.

September 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

When are we going to see the smoking jacket WITH the luchador mask?
