How to Save Money

So, as you can see, the new site's beginning to propagate! Hopefully, the feedburner feed is still ... burning, I guess.

Just wanted to thank everyone for your patience. Also, I wanted to mention that Friday, December 11th will be the last day I'll accept Infini-Tee and Avatar orders for a while. I want to make sure I can get them done by Christmas.

I just snorted a mouthful of bathtub Mountain Dew through my nose.

Funny as always! I especially love the second panel :)

I also like the new site design... it's slick

December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJerod T.

"rinsed" the bathtub. nice touch.

December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterERiKA

There are times I swear you're just ripping this right out of my boyfriend's head!

December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Brilliant!

December 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

Why aren't you wearing any pants while you make the Mt. Dew in the tub?

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjedberg

Nice post, congrats on the new site!

Having worked in a cinema, I know that panel 1 is the pricing policy for concessions.

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSchrau

Oh that is just gross! I can't look at panel 4 without imagining someone actually drinking that muck! Well done!

The one thing I miss about the old layout was the "You will learn" logo at the top right. There seems to be something hiding behind the left corner, but it's awfully small for that logo.

I hope this works better for you!

@Jedberg: He's wearing white pants and boots. Sheesh.

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

I snort. fantastic.

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjulianna01

Glad to see you have the new site up and working. I know firsthand how much a pain it can be.

This comic personifies the male thought process perfectly.

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFox k

Wow, now I'll be eagerly awaiting for the "how to go to the movies without your wife" instructions. :D

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFred Clever

More fine work. The camera angle in Panel 2 is clever, and I foresee the Horrified Wife of Panel 3 getting lots and lots of work in the future.

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRoger

Is that the "board of knowledge" he's using to stir the mix? So it's also a mind-stimulating smart drink also! Please send me a case for Christmas. Call it Scott's Old-Fashioned Tubnogg!
ps. you might want to throw in a tad of everclear just for good luck. I can already hear Rick : "Mmmm, tubnogg "

This is why my wife carries a big purse to the movies. She once smuggled a meatloaf dinner into the theater for me because I had to meet her there right after getting off the bus from work. Concessions would have charged $125 for that.

But I love the concept of not carrying cost-saving ideas too far. Though we probably could have found seats near an outlet for the hot plate . . .

"Bathtub Mountain Dew" must be code for something..........really dirty!

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBudMan

Bath tub Mountain Dew? you're my hero!

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJason

But what's he holding in panel 4?
And no avatars?

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCatBallou

Great cartoon today. Took me a while to realize it was here. Your new site's RSS feed breaks my RSS reader. I think it's because it has markedly fewer carriage returns than before. Granted, my RSS reader is a homemade piece of crap, but still....

But what's he holding in panel 4?

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCatBallou

Bathtub Mountain Dew! Best punch in ages!

Dare you to try to recycle that picture ;)

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChuck

Dear Scott

I *HATE* the new layout of the RSS feed. The simple, old one was much better, and used less bandwidth.

I understand your need to include ads on the header (ads that are removed anyway by simple filters), but can't stand the ugly and complex HTML page.

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMr. N

Your feed is still working. It did, however, throw me a few older posts so I wondered why I suddenly had 10 new comics. Not a big deal.

Congratulations on the new site!

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBen

Confirming that the RSS feed is working... and that I will continue to not drink the Dew.

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

agreed, @Victoria, I miss the old banner (even the streaming ads for other comics seemed to add to the site rather than detract). I guess this'll be like when Facebook changes their format and EVERYONE in your feed comments on hating it (until everyone gets used to it) - not that I have a Facebook account; I have to squeeze a few moments into my day for Basic Instructions as it is, you think I wanna spend all that time following my FRIENDS' inane chatter? Puh-lease.

oh, and @Jedberg, do you believe that Scott has the anatomy of a Ken doll? OF COURSE he's wearing pants! Black t-shirt and white pants is Scott's uniform when he's just himself! Yikes!

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

Thank you for validating my logic! (or mocking it?)

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGruhn

Hey Scott, good news. This inspired a newspaper article:

Is your wife that afraid of your genitalia?

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commentertom

I miss the "How to create a repeating background"...

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLausier

Maybe I'm alone in this, but my live feed hasn't been working for a while, since you had the initial issue.

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

I miss the repeating background

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThomas

new site looks great!

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterUncle Staple

Hmm... here in Norway there's no need to smuggle drinks into the cinemas, as there is no rule against bringing your own snacks and beverages.
Of course, a cinema ticket cost around 20$, so I guess they're not as dependent on concession sales.

December 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNightraven

Bathtub "Mountain Dew" - quite apropos, an old nickname for moonshine - well done!

Love the over-the-shoulder perspective in panel 2!

December 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMaisy

What's up with Missy's pants in the last panel? Was she starting to hike them up in case of a Dew Flood?
