I sincerely hope that "deluxe package" is only an accidental innuendo...

"With a bat on the Speedo for the deluxe package"...

Deeply disturbing on so many levels.

Edgar "Allan" Poe. Great comic (even if the mental images will never wash away)!

November 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBetsy C.

Sorry, Scott. No e in Allan.

Oh man! Gross gross gross!!! It's like the proverbial train wreck. I wanted to look away, but I had to keep reading...

Suckers still wear glasses in the future? Space-Nerdz!

That is not unlikely at all ... for once I hope that you don't have that many readers. Good laugh :)

As I read this strip I couldn't help feeling that the ever-more-disturbing suggestions should be coming from mullet-head and the creeped-out reactions from the bald guy. Is this the first time mullet-head has ever been disturbed by _anything_?

"for once I hope that you don’t have that many readers."

Some say that the problem with violent films and computer games is that they give people who are already insane ideas. I think the same argument could be applied to this comic.

Actually saw a guy a few years ago in a "sexy" Zorro costume just as you described. Hat, mask, cape and Speedo. Ugh.

*eep* . . . me scarred for life . . . *gasp* can never . . get rid . . . of mental . . . imagery . .

Am I the only one who thinks that "future suit" and hair do are BANGIN''?

"The only challenge would be looking at yourself in the mirror."

If you're a sexy vampire, you wouldn't look in a mirror anyway.

Is that an homage to Lobot in the last panel?


November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

Heh. I want to see more sexy men's costumes, actually, Speedo or otherwise...

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

I'm so going as Sexy Abe Lincoln next year... Stovepipe hat, beard, cape, and speedo.

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMorejello

Let's start a BI revolution! Every man who reads this comic should wear a sexy costume next Halloween.

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

@morejello: Check out Electric Six's video for the song Gay Bar.

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfalkin42

totally nsfw, btw.

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterfalkin42

I can only imagine the sexy Rocket Hat & Moonmen Emperor costumes. Wait a minute, this all just too gay for me. Funny stuff though.

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

LOL! Of course men can wear sexy costumes without being gay OR bi...

November 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

The fourth panel makes me less pessimistic about the future.

November 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteramber

Weird. Not seeing my comments...

November 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

I know my costume for next Halloween. A very very creepy rubber mask a cape and a speedo.

November 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJason

I'd actually enjoy a trend in sexy costumes for men. I say this idea be embraced!

November 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSam

Okay.. next year's costume... Sexy Robin Williams!

November 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSteven M.

Hey Scott, what are the round things on the shoulders of all your 'future guys'? I mean, I get that they are there to signify futuristic dress, and as that sort of visual they work on a cultural, gut level, but is there a name for them? They're not epaulettes, those go on top of the shoulder. Just wondering. Thanks for a ll the yuks.
a major fan.

I am so glad I had to work on Halloween this year...may I work on all the upcoming Halloweens as well, as I really really reallallllllllly don't want to see any of this come to pass. It would be like Borat does Point Break.

November 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJiggly McSickfingers

Michael R - thanks for sharing that. I've BEEN to that street fair, I think.

I do like MHB's line 'deeply disturbing'.

November 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRobert

Jeez, guys of the comments page - why would wearing next-to-nothing make you seem gay? Women do have eyes to ogle with, and intrepid fellows who get that they can be the eye-candy now and then, tend to be very popular...
Though costumeshop "sexy" costumes tend to be lame-o due to their total lack of originality, whether the unseasonal excess of exposed flesh is male or female.

@Morejelllo - LOVE the sexy Abraham

someone pass me the brain bleach! mullet in speedo...gah!!!!

May 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpiscesmended

So I was thinking for a Halloween costume would be a bald cap, a cape with your Knowledge 2x4 logo, and a speedo with the words Basic Instructions.

July 25, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterscrotum torture

I will never feel clean again. I need to go take a bath with my clothes on; so that they can feel clean again to.

November 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBig Hands

Hmm.... What would a sexy edgar allan poe costume be, i wonder? Oh, of course! A cape, a speedo, and a raven!

January 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNick
