He "secretes" them about his person? Ewww....I'm happier thinking he just cuts stuff too!

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterryan

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.

June 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCBS

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.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnother Rob

Don't forget the ascot.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterwarrior two

(or is that a dickie?)

whole cows aren't kosher, only the front half of a cow can be kosher.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Still working on finding a monocle I see.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJeremy

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.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Knife-resistant smoking jacket. Nice.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeo

I have to say, new ric looks a bit like your wife.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered Commentera*p

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.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBender the Robot

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.....

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

Worryingly, I work with a guy who seems to be into knives and the new look Rick looks more like him.

June 25, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Committing Yak

It's there. The speech bubble's blocking it.

June 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIsaac

What about the monocle ? The outfit is not complete !

June 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAntho

which is actually part of the smoking jacket "ensemble"

June 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

maybe Mullet Boss has, in fact, 8 front-halves of cows, equalling four "whole" cows...

June 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

or has eaten, I should say...

June 27, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

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!

July 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGeedavey

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.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteramber

Van Helsing?

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteramber

I think the dictionary definition may be faulty. I tried looking the word up and just found "ewwww"!

September 11, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWally

I collect Pokemon. I have one of every single species, and all of the unown

That is over 500 Pokemon

I need a life

August 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIcalasari

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!

July 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAugust

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.

November 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Is this the beginning of the Knifeketeer?

April 21, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterqwerty

Woo-Hoo! Jacket & Mask!

November 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJohnnyboy

@Sigurdgram Modern daggers have short blades.
