monstersssssssss....mmmmmmmm...wait, are you implying men are monsters? can i be a cat's corpse with a demonic spider living inside? that's a lot creepier than geeks that only stare at your breasts, right?

This is too funny...'exaggerated male archetypes' true!

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRishi

Good to see the "horrified face" panel get another appearance. I LQTS'd at that one (laughed quietly to self).

Right up there with Captain Idiom!

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFrankleeMiDeer

That's one of the funniest and most insightful things I've ever seen.

OMG! OMG! OMG! (hope is not too short now ...)

i've had these conversations many times with men, word for word in the case of the last panel. your powers of observation are truly amazing!

How tell if you're dating a MULTI-PERSONALITY female monster:
BRIDEZILLA (several weeks before and up to and during the wedding reception)

MS. HYDE (one week out of every four)

THE BLOB (usually found on the couch in front of the televeision)

ICE PRINCESS (usually frozen from waist down, but can start higher)

I worry I am all three.

I have to think, zombies would be far far better if, instead of crying out for brains, they really did cry out for boobs. A mob of rotting corpses chasing a scantily clad cheerleader, chanting "boooobs, booobs!"

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBikerBot

*sporfles* Good one!

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterConservatorChick

I get it! Some men are bad people on the inside!!

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteroh no

I love the bite missing from Rick's shoulder. Details like that make me laugh a second time at a strip.

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersnowdog

That's right baby, I want your big, juicy brains...

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChuck

It looks like he bit himself too.

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

Who's face is that for Frankenstein's monster? I can't seem to place it, but I'm sure I've seen it in other comics.

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterdragonseth

Gold again. I had the same feeling in the 90's reading Dilbert; it was consistently great. Now Scott Adams has lost the edge, but Meyer's on a roll. Thanks for the laughs.
PS: Then Godzilla must be a caricature of the "ugly" American: can't behave himself in a foreign country, wrecks havoc on Japan cities, scares the hell out of the locals... oh wait, Godzilla WAS an hyperbole for the Nukes the US dropped on Japan. Nevermind.

Wow, in all those years of dating monsters, I never recognized them! Thank you so much, Scott, for the enlightenment. Guess we can get rid of dating books and send dating-age women to the monster movies, huh? Great. Just great.

[...] Men are monsters, and monsters are men. Recognize. [...]

Rick makes me happy. But I do miss the hair still.

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

Just bought your FIRST book, and now there's a second? Euuuuphemismmmm. . . .

July 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRock Ripsnort

Ok, so Rick is the zombie type, Scott is the Dr. Jekyll type, who exactly is Frankenstein's monster?

July 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNvn

Panel 1 may be my favorite BI panel ever. I need it poster size.

July 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIZ

I don't get the first panel.

July 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMister X

Oh I think I get it now, the lesbian is glad the woman escaped the monster while the bald man hopes the woman onscreen would be chased and strangled by the monster!

July 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMister X

Now it's even _more_ my favorite.

July 18, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIZ

YES! I love that drawing. The only other use that springs to mind is in panel 3 of "How to Face Your Fear" (, but it is so. Awesome.

Anyone know if it's been used in any other strips?

July 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

"Don't try to change me baby. That's the serum's job." That is pants-wettingly funny stuff.

July 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLolaBaby

"Euphemism" - :))

July 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNiri

I love euphemisms of all shapes and sizes!

July 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterB

I want the hell out of a shirt that says "Don't try to change me baby, That's the serums job."

September 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEd

Has nobody noticed how much Scott looks like Adam Savage in frame 3?

September 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAldaris

OH MY GOD HE DOES!!!!! WTF? *roflmao*

October 12, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIzzy

My good man, there is some truth to this strip. Not necessarily as compared to reality, though. Just in the original intent of the filmmakers to scare parents into being overprotective of their daughters.

Of course, archetypes come from SOMEwhere...

November 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRadien

I just figured out who Frankenstein is, it's the companies only customer, who hates Scott. I think so, anyways.

April 26, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfairywaif

*bwahahahaha* Awesome. I now want to spend a day in front of monster movies.

July 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTe

@Aldaris: Or, as an earlier commenter pointed out, Gordon Freeman without hair.

March 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterADSF


(Oh, this isn't yootoob? So sorry . . .)

Ah, ha! Such a bargain, that BI calendar! Two laughs for the price of one, today!
