He "secretes" them about his person? Ewww....I'm happier thinking he just cuts stuff too!
Secret, not secrete.... ;-) Though the thought of secreting a knife is amusing!
Brock Samson (no "p)... now there is an effing role model!
I have a friend who used to say that he collected handshakes. He had a whole list of famous people he'd shaken hands with. By "whole list" I mean "two or three", and by "famous people" i mean "people who might have a wikipedia stub article about them".
it was a short-lived hobby.
se·crete 2 (sĭ-krēt') tr.v. se·cret·ed, se·cret·ing, se·cret·es
1. To conceal in a hiding place; cache. 2. To steal secretly; filch.
[Probably alteration of obsolete secret, from secret.]
Brilliant. The last line really ties it all together.
HA! I love the Mexican Wrestling mask. Also, I love the Venture Brothers reference.
holy crap in a sock! you got the fez, mexican wrestling mask, smoking jacket, and now chainmail gloves...all in one AMAAAAAZING frame. my hobby is collecting competitive Basic Instructions comments...which I then post...thus losing them, in a sense...hmmm, I might have to rethink this hobby
Knife-resistant is an important feature.
Don't forget the ascot.
(or is that a dickie?)
whole cows aren't kosher, only the front half of a cow can be kosher.
Still working on finding a monocle I see.
Hey, so you work from pictures... Please tell me that you actually have a picture of you in the getup shown in the last panel.
Knife-resistant smoking jacket. Nice.
I have to say, new ric looks a bit like your wife.
Rick seems a lot less angry now that he's packing... Also, the only thing that could make panel 4 more disturbing would be the addition of the blue Watchmen "garment" to Scott's wardrobe.
So mulletman is like Renfield from Bram Stoker's Dracula? I'd think you'd WANT the knife wielding friend on your side after that encounter.
Hmmmm, weaaring the smoking jacket, Mexican wrestling mask with a fez on top, and chainmail gloves....on your way to the gentleman's club with Ric again? Mmmmmmm, mint julips.....
Worryingly, I work with a guy who seems to be into knives and the new look Rick looks more like him.
It's there. The speech bubble's blocking it.
What about the monocle ? The outfit is not complete !
which is actually part of the smoking jacket "ensemble"
maybe Mullet Boss has, in fact, 8 front-halves of cows, equalling four "whole" cows...
or has eaten, I should say...
In fact, not correct...the back half of a cow can be prepared Kosher, it just requires a lot of labor and a specialist in the art of "treiboring", or removing the sciatic nerve. I had a delicious sirloin in Jerusalem a few years back.
Still it pains me that the @$$hole boss is likely Jewish! We don't need him on our side.Hatzlacha, Scott!
I wasn't aware of that, until you mentioned it.
This is why it's important to read the comments to get the full benefit.
I think the dictionary definition may be faulty. I tried looking the word up and just found "ewwww"!
I collect Pokemon. I have one of every single species, and all of the unown
That is over 500 Pokemon
I need a life
Finally! The Luchadore mask, the smoking jacket, and the fez, along with the ascot and now chainmail gloves!
This could be BI's version of "I put on my robe and wizard hat" :D
Venture Bros., FTW!
both secret and secrete would work technically, but with secrete you've got the awesome intimidation phrase of "I SWEAT DAGGERS." daggers are knives, just long ones. all daggers are knives but not all knives are daggers. like squares and rectangles.
I would love to see the night-vision goggles added to this ensemble.
Is this the beginning of the Knifeketeer?
Woo-Hoo! Jacket & Mask!
@Sigurdgram Modern daggers have short blades. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagger
