... with jazz hands.
I'll be sure to put out an APB nationwide and notify Homeland Security. You have to be delicate handling Dubya, ya know.
Are you talking to Scott? I don't feel like "handling" Dubya. Or any other POTUS for that matter.
My writing style does need work. I think of great stories, but stink, stink, stink as a writer.
Yeah...um...airsoft. Is that the game in which you dress up like Soldiers and shoot air guns loaded with marshmallows at each other?
Who's holding the combat knife, Rob? You or your cousin? If it's you, what's your cousin armed with? If it's your cousin, how do you disarm him? How do you get the knife away from him? I can't sleep until you clarify this.
BTW - What's a combat knife? I would think any knife used in "combat" would be a combat knife. For instance, I open my MREs with a Buck 3 inch lock blade. If I'm in Iraq, that would be a combat knife. When I'm in garrison, it's just a pocket knife; Handy to have, no doubt, but still just a pocket knife due to the environment. Like wise with my Gerber BMF. In Iraq, it's good for scrambling brains. Here in the rear, it's an effective paper weight. So, really...what the hell is a combat knife?
People always fear what they don't understand. My wife hates guns with a passion. No matter how much I point out they're just a tool with a specific purpose and don't do anything on their own, so insists there's no need for them. Her dad is retired an brother current law enforcement, too. Had her convinced to shoot with me once, but when we set a date for it, she backed out. Perplexing.
Scott, great strip! I agree, panel one makes an excellent T-shirt, when it's time to update designs. Keep it up!
Yours too? At least its not only me.
I love this comic. Been going through the archives. Haven't laughed this hard since....
Hey, I've started a blog where I feature tons of web comics from all over. I've used this entry of yours in one of my posts, I hope that's ok? I've credited it appropriately, you can check it out, and do let me know if you have any objections.
Oh, and I love your website. Thanks!
[...] How to Tell If Someone Is Dangerously Crazy [...]
Absolutely hilarious -- especially the forced smile.
Thank you for teaching me social skills with exquisite humor! Now I know that if I ever overcome my dangerous clumsiness enough to own the machete collection of my dreams, I should keep it to myself! :D
