Yump Yump Yump! My new tag line, Thanks Scott.

I started giggling at "yump, yump, yump," and had a great time from there on in.

I love it! For the wife and I, it's usually "while you're up can you (fill in the blank)"

My mom would go one further::

Mom: Hey, do you want a Coke?
Me: Yeah!
Mom: Get me one too, while you're up.

Just last night I woke up to the sound of one of my cats going "yump, yump, yump" right next to my head. I thought maybe the Swedish Chef had picked up a new vocabulary or something.

You are truly the only comic/artist who can accurately describe the unmistakable sound of a cat vomiting.

June 18, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKingFrazer

Ah, the unmistakable Yump of cat vomit.

June 18, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDeteramot

we don't have a cat but we do have a baby and the rule is: you smell it, you change it. i'm the one with bad sinuses but mysteriously my husband can't smell poo.

Another classic. Too bad you lst the contest. But you know, with a little training and discipline, I think you could take her.

Yay, her glasses are back! I like the way it is done in this strip. I am one of the few, I guess, that did not have a problem with the way you did the glasses for your wife.

Your comic strip work here is excellent. In some ways it is kinda scary to see how people with varied career interests, gadget preference and I am sure political opinions share common issues like cat vomit and American Idol. Yes, I meant to put those two things close together. ;)

June 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAC

LOL, cat vomit and American Idol. Yes. They do belong together.

June 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMike

I thiught yump, yump, yump, was the sound of Paula Abdul walking across the stage !

June 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

I like the glasses too. They add character.

June 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersnowdog

I wouldn't have won either....

Why isn't the author wearing any pants in panel 2?

June 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterScotts

When do we get to see the wife in Ric's moon-man outfit?

To all of you asking to see Missy in something other than Missy attire, SHAME! If she wears a bikini for Scott, that's their own business... unless somehow the instructions REQUIRE him to dress her that way, and he better have her permission beforehand. And c'mon, the Magnificent Robe? Any Magnificent Robe Missy wore would be WAY more Magnificent just by virtue of her wearing it. She's the one character that brings class to Scott's sad little world. Leave her alone!
Missy, I dig your look with and without the glasses. Personally, I'm planning to fix my vision soon so I'll be lens-free forever, but that has less to do with fashion than convenience.

Ah, 'you smell it, you change it'. I believe that's the corrollary of the 'you wake him, you take him' rule in our house.

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLolaBaby

Its the sound of Paula Abdul walking across stage IN CORDUROY PANTS.

June 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Prentice

Shup BI fan, I second the bikini request. I don't care much the 'reason' for it.
It has less to do with Missy herself and more to do with the fact that there are plenty of people in the world (myself, obviously, included) who like the way actual human women look. Women who were not manufactured in a plastics labratory and paraded out for fashion shows.

July 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKen

Um Ken, it's a cartoon....not an "actual" human woman.

August 11, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKMayi

Um KMayi, it's a cartoon character drawn from photos of Scott's "actual" wife. So yes, she IS, in fact, and actual human woman.

If she'll put on American Idol just to get you to clean up cat barf, she'll clearly do anything. Watch your back.

July 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTe

I like "yump" as a pet-barf onomatopoeia. The only other one I've heard before is from humor columnist Dave Barry, who refers to the sound as "hornk." I like both of them.
