I was equally pleased with the punchlines in all four panels, the combination of which left me chortling.
"I must say, that's not very gentlemanly." Classic. :D
And the disgust/outrage of both faces in panel three match the dialog perfectly.
Very nice, Scott.
The southern gentleman suit amused me greatly.
If your idea of a Southern Gentleman is Colonel Sanders. ;)
Surly guy sure is surly. Kudos. But really, you should spring for a pipe prop. Gentlemen are far too morally and intellectually superior to smoke these new-fangled "cigar-ettes".
Forty dollars in ones! HAHAHA!! Moral and intellectual comparisons aside, you've demonstrated superiority of deviosity.
Is Scott wearing pants in panel 2??
A gentleman surely would...or WOULD he? Gentlemen's clubs...hahahaha! I can't help but think of the League of Robots.
Am I the only one who laughs his ass off at these things? Scott's cleverness never ceases to amaze - especially panels two and three which had me rolling. How does he come up with this stuff?
mint juleps make me happy.
Also, for what it's worth, with the doubling cube, backgammon at a dollar a game could prove interesting.
Great one! I see I'm not the only one who finds irony in strip joints being called Gentleman's Clubs when a Gentleman is the last type of person you'll find in there. By the way, did your wife buy the story of that being the type of club you actually went to? :P
Scott you have the only webcomic I have ever seen that commenter's go through and anaylize square by square. An amazing feat. Congrats!
Great comic. But just how does waering a smoking jacking, smoking a cigarillo, dinking alcohol and gambling on backgammon, and posing as a Southerner all demonstrate moral and intelectual superiority ? As a Southern Man myself, I must say I am deeply offended by your stereotyping. I demand satisfaction and I challenge you to a duel, you poser !But I loved Rick's one line- "mint julips"
How about a follow-up comic "How to turn a Friend into and Enemy" ?
very nice. I love the smoking jacket it just makes the comic Epic. I want to wear that on the last day of my Senior year! haha!

My dear Scott, you are getting WAY too much mileage out of that smoking jacket.
Honestly, it's entirely possible that Rick and Scott would dress like that and play backgammon as regular recreation. Somehow, I wouldn't really be surprised.
