Missy with a moustache. What more need be said?
Square number 2 is me and my 11 year old daughter every time we play... Awesome comic.
I find the moustache quite classy. It made me a little jealous.
Why are you trying to play I Wanna be the Guy with your wife?
Are they playing the newspaperboy game? I forget the exact title...
This appears to be a Paperboy reference. You win an internet, I think.
So I'm not the only one to assume a Paperboy reference. What a bunch of nerds we are.
I was quite pleased with myself noticing that the mustache had a cable coming from it.
I never win any internets. (*pouts*)
"Once you get the hang of using the mustache, it rocks!"Truer words were never spoken.
You know what other old game is like Paperboy? Life Force for the NES. The only things your planes can touch without crashing and burning (barring the use of force fields) are pod power-ups.
For your next clip-art pack you definitely need one of your wife with the mustache and the guitar, that is fantastic.
Obviously, to play "Rock Band: Hall and Oates" properly you either have to have your mic on a stand so your hands are free for the guitar, OR you wear the moustache-mic like Missy! I'll have to get my sweet husband to buy this game so I can wear the moustache-mic too!
Paperboy.... Watch out for that unidentifiable blob of pixels, it'll kill you. Seriously, Why was absolutely everything trying to kill the poor paperboy?
OMG THE SHRUBS ARE BACK TO GET ME!
But if you play RBHO with the micstand/guitar setup, how do you clap?
I think "Bdarg" is the most original death cry I've heard in many a year. As a matter of fact, it is so impressive, I vow to say it on my death bed.
what about bloop?But I ahree.
Ah! It seems Missy has finally submitted to the call of the video game!:P
That is exactly how my husband and I play. "Look out for the -" "I know, I know -" *death cries* "Okay, jackass, give me the controller." Ah, love.
had me at first panel ...HEY! LOOK OUT FOR THAT COMMENT ...IT'LL KILL YOU!!!
Well, I think "Once you get used to using the mustache, it rocks" is the quote of the day.
Now that I think on it, nothing in Paperboy actually killed your character, not even oncoming cars. The "Game Over" screen had a newspaper shaming him for quitting. Which is bad enough; I'd've quit too if the route were that dangerous.

I had a paper route when I was a pre-teen, and the only it killed was my feet....
Heh. I shouted BDARG!! at someone today. They agreed and walked away
"BDARG!" AAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....I WANT MY CHARACTER TO GO, "BDARG!" NEXT TIME HE GETS KILLED...I'LL PEE ON MYSELF IF THAT HAPPENS, I TOTALLY WILL.
It seems pretty clear that we need a 'look out for that shrub' t shirt.
I think those are the common talk during play video games and I know there are many car games in which both the player love their own car more then the player who is playing with them.
I particularly like that the mustache is apparently plugged in. None of those new-fangled wireless mustaches for her!
Shrubs are demons.
I want the game in panel 1 so. *Badly*.
Even a bush can kill you? Are they playing, "I Wanna Be That Guy"?
HAHAHa love square 2
You know what's really funny? They're now ACTUALLY MAKING a Rock Band: Hall and Oates music pack. Sadly, no mention of a mustache peripheral. =P
This is quite possibly your funniest comic ever :)
