Next time try reciting "Do Ya'" by Jeff Lynne.
If you sang my song, I would still want it back.
Shades of Shatner, that was funny!
Why is it the best expressions are always in Panel 3? (Directs the attention of the readers to the following comic: http://basicinstructions.net/?p=830 )
That was the funniest one yet! Have you heard Derek & Clive (Peter Cook & Dudley Moore) doing "A Hard Days Night"? They also did "She Loves You, Yeah Yeah Yeah".
two words, scott: Numa Numa. Live it, Learn it, Love it.
That's the face of someone who saw today's school lunch.
return of the Mark Twain suit!
Bravo! Love the inspiration and the execution.
BAH HA HA! I love it. The creepy 70's style of "wife in the corner looking down" had tears rolling down my face. Great Job!

fresh prince of bel-air is the best spoken word song
That Youtube video of Telly is a shame! It made me laugh until tears ran down my cheeks and yet it was sad to see the hero of movies like "Kelly's Heroes" and "The Dirty Dozen" brought so low. IMHO, the cig makes that video!
I once heard someone, and I cannot for the life of me remember who, do a rendition of Why Don't We Do It In The Road by the Beatles...anyone who cannot immediately find the hilarity quotient in that desperately needs to listen to the song...but I mean, the title itself is a dead give-away. Thanks for the Telly vid...now I'm gonna have tossing turning nightmares on Valentine's Day and my wife will blame YOUUUUUUUU SCOTT!
Yanno, I just thought of something...here I am in my gravatar mocking Glen Danzig, and there's a man who, ever since he quit the Misfits has done nothing but do spoken word renditions of songs. The weird thing about him is that he's done them of HIS OWN songs! (I'm sure that Jem and the Rockers are happy Glen left).
that would be Colonel Sanders suit izzy...not to be confused with Colonel Klink...but who am I to say? I know nuthink!
I see the smoking jacket made a return
Oops, meh bad . . .
what i ever wondered about is:is your spouse really like this? and was it this, that drove you into comedic writing?
I like to think that to get Scott's wife's pose for panel three, he took her photo while he actually did that particular spoken word rendition.
I like that you actually used the smoking jacket for its intended purpose in this strip, I think.
