Welcome back Scott! Hope your feeling better.
What does he mean when he says "I agree... on two levels"?
haha, panel three is hilariously awkward
Hey isiah, check this out dude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEOJP3UtaLQ
Very funny, but I don't get the "on two levels" line.
Just a stab-in-the-dark, but I think the "two levels" are: (1) Sure, almost everybody is wrong; and (2) Scott believes the 'almost' to include Producer-Guy and exclude himself (contrary to Producer-Guy's view excluding himself from correction).
I just figured it was one of those "it works on so many levels" sort of things...
Hooray for the return of sarcasm.
You can shut up know-it-alls effectively. It's called violence. Ever hear of it?
LOL! Panel three is pure gold. But gosh, I hate people like that.
Back in form! It was worth the wait.
There's a difference between being a know-it-all and having the all the right answers.
Isiah, the details are unimportant!
Would it be appropriate to answer the questions above "The details are unimportant!!"
Still panel one reminded me of the great Forrest Gump/Benjamin Button parody on funnyordiehttp://tinyurl.com/cr5uxa
Death to all know-it-alls.
I'll start with the disclaimer that if I have to explain a joke, clearly the joke didn't work and as such is most likely not worth explaining in the first place.
What I was getting at was that almost everybody is wrong (from comic-me's point of view, at least), and that Jenkins irritates almost everybody.
Sorry about that.
a return to form! approaches the gut-busting hilarity of classics like How to Write Haiku, How to Be X-Treme, How to Act Casual and How to Avoid Startling Someone.
i thought that was implicit in panel one
No need to apologize, some didn't have enough Red Bull in their diet yesterday
You would turn Bullwinkle into mooseburger? Palin supporter!
Awesome to have ye back, Scott!
Q: Is it just me, or does the Know-It-All remind anyone else of George Lucas???
How is war going with the Moonmen?
So you being ironic? sadly, I fail to find the humor in that statement.
Does the fact that I seem to know a lot of know-it-alls mean that I am in fact a closeted know it all dealing with everyone else? I'm hoping they're just know-it-alls since I'm obviously right, which makes me more like Scott than George Lucas guy...
Clearly a better way to handle a know-it-all is to agree with anything he says, since he is trying to get under your skin and this will derail him.
I have been dealing with know-it-alls for quite some time and I don't think I am being immodest by considering myself an expert.
But Wall.E was a rip of off Silent Running. I thought everyone knew that...
I never noticed any similarities between the films until I re-watched Silent Running at the weekend. The robots are a similar shape and both films involve a heavily polluted world where plants don't grow any more.
@Jerodian:I also noticed a bit of a resemblance between know-all and George Lucas.
Fantastic comic, and wow... a Short Circuit reference!!
People who think they know everything are really irritating to those of us who do./classic
oH FOR THE LOVE OF ....(air escaping from steam valve)Not every bearded guy is George LucasGeorge Lucas is short, his hair is much darker (actually it's salt and pepper, now) and he's not "big" or fatIf Scott rotoscoped Barbra Eden, you'd all swear it was Amy Winehouse.BTW, Short Circuit was a rip-off of R2D2 who was a rip off of the droids from Silent Running. Now that we've established lineage, ever notice CARS was a lame ripoff of Doc Hollywood?
My first impulse was to point out all the ways that Wall-E and Johnny 5 aren't similar, but Scott handled this well in panel 3. George Lucus' pants are too tight in the crotch.
Oh, come on, you don't have to diss on poor Barbara Eden that way! If I'm wrong, I'm wrong; don't compare my favorite genie to trashy Amy Whatshername. :p
I would like to know "How to Handle a the continual skeptic."
the third panel!! HAHAHAHA! XD i love it!
I agree. It's hilarious.
This comic is hilarious on two levels
about the last panel, when Scott says "I agree, on two levels" hes referring to his comment about correcting people, which he finds an IRRITATING habit, and the other guy says he corrects almost everybody, which means he is irritating
I was among the people who didn't get the joke in the fourth panel, but the third panel more than makes up for it.
