Man. Your comic can always make me smile. :) Brilliant

Tenth! Or something within an order of magnitude or so...

I think I'd actually read "Scott Meyer Presents: Basic Instruction's Rick By Scot Meyer."

Like, seriously.

Hey, where can I get one of those smoking jackets/bathrobes?

Should the first panel say "it seems" rather than "it seem"?

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEsn

It would seem that you have to like a person like Ric, but I can't say if the rule would apply for women.

I am just gonna come out and say it, I miss the old Rick. His mullet helped keep America strong! His new look is just begging the Kaiser to finally make his move.

Angry Rick makes me aroused. My testicle just contracted.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHidden Joke

Good to see Ric still gets the respect he deserves. We should all have a friend like you, Scott. Wait, I do have one. He's the one who said he was a real geek magnet in high school . . . Jerk.

The clever ruse in the final panel is hilariously epigrammatic. Great job.

I noticed future Rick had also lost one hand. Did that happen at the same time he lost a testicle ? Also, would having only one testicle produce midget children ? In panel three, is that an oversized cellphone/ beltbuckle he's wearing ?

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

Heh, you said "drop" in the same comic as "testicle."

Don't get testy at me for noticing.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPrattle Assassin

Please, could we would get an update on the war with rocket helmet guy vs. the moonmen ? For some reason I can't help wondering about the final outcome. Did they ever re-sever the chinstrap?

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

Your pun, it is terrible. Just drop it.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMister Atlas

It's a control panel for the plastic testicle, which is also a robot.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMister Atlas

It wasn't until my second read that I recognised his groin enhancement as Darth Vader's chest box. That's laugh-out-loud funny Scott; nice touch.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMattyD

Hey, is that Darth Vader's "chest ATM" serving as Future Rick's sporran / crotch cover?

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPat J

Sorry, "chest Lite-Brite™" . If I'm'a quote Robot Chicken I might as well get it right.

July 2, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPat J

Do the ex-wives have anything to do with the lost testicle?

Or are they erm, separate issues.

July 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPhil

Perhaps the robotic hand is responsible for the loss of the testicle... I mean, it looks like you could do some damage with that thing if say, you went to scratch yourself in the night...

July 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter9Squirrels

ROFL for panel 4....
and your reader responses are even funnier!
nice one after i return from my BI sleep...

July 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFreda

i just wanted to say that this is the only comic i've ever read that actually makes me laugh. it's great. thanks for creating these.

July 3, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbrandan

I once heard of a guy who had five penises... They said his pants fit like a glove.

July 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

Yes, Rick is well-liked in these parts.

I too, however, would like to see his old, awful haircut back. It was a look that conveyed in one glance the character's general poor taste and pathetic-ness (uh, sorry, Ric). For the heck of it, I tried, just now, to copy and paste Old Rick's hair onto New Rick's face in MS Paint, with surprisingly pleasing results. Failing that... you could just put a wig on him before snapping the picture.

July 4, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHazel

Yeah I really want to see the conclusion to the moon man one.

July 5, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterisiah

Brilliant. Hard to believe you're possible.

July 9, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn Friesen

tee hee that's pretty awesome but bad
still good though
that makes no sense
and rick appears to be wearing thicker glasses... perhaps one of his exes h t him on the head so hard it messed up his retina even more?

July 11, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThisIsWhoIAm

I am future comment poster. I am here to tell you about the future comment posts. There will be just one, made of plastic.

June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRichie

I'm not usually a grammar Nazi, but "yay" refers to a type of recreational drug. "Yea" is the spelling for the word that means "affirmative" or "hurray" :)
