Psst, Scott - grammatical error in the first panel! Way too hot, unless you are in fact saying that the open air mall is the "way to hot." Geez, I feel like a meanie pointing that out, but I know I won't be the only one.
I can identify with this on a couple of levels. Love it.
this is pure awesomeness.
'Heartbreaking' will now be my catchphrase

Genius! (Even though I love hot weather, it's the cold I can't stand)
Dig the hat. More guys should wear hats. But real hats, not the froo-froo hats of backup dancers. Like Indiana Jones.
This works by the way. Pulled a very similar stunt a few years back on the now ex-wife. I think the two facts are unrelated anyway...
I agree about the hot weather. Whenever someone at work complains about the heat I just respond that I'll take it over the winter any day. Unfortunately I haven't heard much about the heat this year as most of July has actually felt like it was May here in Chicago.
You sir, have once again managed to delight and amuse me. You occupy a rare position in that you titillate and ensure the happiness of people by use of your hobby. Huzzah!
lmao just wear a white shirt and sunglasses! is what I do :D
Love it! And I have the hats and the shirts.
I live and work in Florida, for a huge corporation that regulates the temperatures in the facility from their h.q. in Minnesota...I'm originally from Tennessee...I would be blissfully happy to live somewhere like San Diego or London where it's in a medium state of temperature all the time.
That's a pretty excellent hat. We'd better see more of that hat in the future. A LOT MORE.
I assure you, San Diego is not "medium." They have medium winters, but their summers are in no way medium. I'm from Oregon, and if you want constantly medium weather, don't come here!
This finally explains my husband's penchant for hawaiian shirts and tilley hats.
You forgot to attach the drink to the hat ...
Bleh. I'd rather winter over humidity any time. It's no fun to sweat as soon as you walk outside, stink like a wet dog and then have to shower while at work so your boss doesn't fire you for always smelling off in this heat.
I quite like that outfit on Scott, it looks like he's the warden at a pre-school. "Well, well, well, little man, ah see-uh we-uh have-uh fayl-yuh tuh cuh-myoon-uh-cate. Five-uh minutes in de corner, and no juicebox, yuh hear-yuh?
A better hat would be the mexican sombrero. They really do create a lot of shade on your shoulders. Though you really don't see many people wear them here in S. Texas as much as in Mexico, but they are excellant in the Summer.
Uh, "way too hot" is fine grammatically. No offense.
hmmmm... Do you think that perhaps in the 3 days that passed between when the first commenter pointed the error out and when you chose to be an AssHat maybe it was fixed??? What a concept!
Well Negative Nelly, no need to be so neg-
Scott, your husbandly evasion tactics are legendary. Bill Cosby would be proud.
I laughed so hard I almost fell off the chair! This is me! I wear a hat like that, loose fitting shirts (during the summer) and carry a water bottle! My wife swears you must have seen me at the outlet center.
The more I read your comic, the deeper in love I inexplicably fall with your wife.
you are a genius. too bad the mall my wife likes is not a normal mall. now you can write some instructions on how to avoid shopping altogether.
