Fun fact, playing tetris after a traumatic event has been shown to reduce trauma: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7813637.stm
Great stuff! Only complaint would be that his shirtlessness isn't as obvious as it could be. But the last two panels were brilliant. Great comic timing.
Got one for me? I want to feel clean.
Excellent! Haha.I am glad that there are people who agree(or disagree) with the same certain things as me.
I especially like the back hair, well played!
Wham! were so cool.
This is your greatest Masterpiece. It used to be "How to Calm a Frightened Child." You have actually discovered another category to Scott Adams' list of humor types. Disturbing. And yes, this goes beyond plain old "weird."
Hilarious :DWhere can I buy such a toy submarine?
!@#$%^&*(!@!!!! This actually happend to me. Same picture. How did you know? Must feel clean again...
I like how the cat has a look of terror and is trying to flee. Great strip.
Dumb Question: Why would purebred females be rare? Yes, I'm an idiot who knows nothing of breeding.
Were the cat actually terrified and trying to flee, I feel that mullet boss would probably, considering the lack of upper body clothing, be covered in slashes and gashes, much like Scott's arms were in How To Wash A Cat.
I have always found George Michael and Adam Ridgeley both to be rather disturbing...who cares if he was singing "sex is best when it's ONE ON ONE..."? I mean, that line doesn't exactly assuage fears about rape or pedophilia or incest or bestiality when another line intones, "not everybody does it, but EVERYBODY should." Mullet boss is definitely a bad mental image there...now throw him and the cat in with George M. and his shirtless-under-a-leather-biker-jacket and you might need therapy beyond the toy submarine.
You just know the mullet-man set the camera up on a tripod and started snapping away... it started out innocently enough, but then the shirt came off... what other depraved images lay stored away on his hard drive?
Still scrubbing ... still scrubbing .... STILL SCRUBBING .... MY SKIN IS RAW BUT I'M STILL NOT CLEAN ... I HAVE NO MOUTH AND CANNOT SCREAMMMMMMMMM .... whimper ... whimper ...
Great! Now I have to put some filler since the comment validation engine wants mo' lettas.
Oh no, you didn't really use that image from the artclip download did you? I was just getting over that imagery. Now I'm trying to stop laughing while at the same time throwing up in my mouth ! The third panel reminded me of when the Pet Detective discovered Finkle was Einhorn! Funny stuff, man, funny stuff.You are obviously "a man who knows knowledge".
Purebred females are just rare as purebred males. :)
The joke is that a "purebred *whatever*" is the child of two parents which are both themselves purebred *whatevers*. Thus a "purebred female" implies that the parents were both female.
They aren't. :)
You still ROCK.
those images will be in my mind forever.
THANKS A LOT!
Is the boss showing off his man-sweater on a Zune?
hilarious. and hilarious comment, CBS. i had no idea the phrase "trying to flee" could be funny.
...this is a wonderful strip, which makes me happy every several days or so -- in this particular one the funniest bit is the tiny periscope (once you notice it) -- God bless you Mr Meyer...
I think you should spin off your main charchter with the boss. Make them roomates kind of a odd couple kind of thing.
Do I detect a very subtle reference to Pedro Almodovar's "Tie Me Up Tie Me Down"?
Or is it just me?
I think I only got this joke on 2nd reading. The Boss doesn't actually know what breed...so.. he.. I need to get back to work. Star Trek was pretty good. Uhura leggier but less curvy, sorry I'm a pure bred male, I notice these things.
An even creepier thought...WHO TOOK THE PICTURE?
It might have been a portrait where the boss had to sit and pose for hours. Who would've painted such a thing? Maybe Scott? He initailly drew it anyways, very disturbing now that I think about it more.
Thanks! I put a lot of effort into that back hair.
Really?! I wrote this strip because it actually happened to me! Is there some silent movement of people taking shirtless picures with their pets then tricking other people into looking at the pictures?
no, it's a T-Mobile Shadow, which sucks, btw.
I wish I could claim to have been referencing a foreighn film, but no. It is just you.
Watch it, it's a brilliant, funny film & you'll see this strip in a whole new light.
You can thank me later :) Or not.
MULLET BOSS USES A T-MOBILE SHADOW! :D
Thank god I was sitting on the throne when I looked at this strip. This has to be one of your best. I kept it in the throne room to ensure that there will NEVER be any accidents.
That was perfect because with the way it was drawn, I didn't understand that the boss was shirtless until the final panel, then I looked back and the HORRIBLENESS hit me. Beautiful.
