Oh you did it today Scott. This is a gem.
Is this based on a true story, or did the idea of the mullet boss kicking a dog in the balls just come to you out of the blue?
I know I'm hooked on your four-panel, because today when I clicked on my RSS feed to download your graphic I started smiling, before I had seen anything. I knew it was going to be good. I really like your formula and your characters. The dialog is great. I wish I could think of things like that to say off the top of my bald, goateed head.
Appeals to the side of me that I had forgotten.
"A man never stands so tall as when he stoops to strike at a dog's genitalia."
Best. Saying. Ever.
Jasper Carrott has told a similar tale, completely riveting.
I must have spent about two minutes laughing at the first panel alone. I admit, by the end of the boss man's first speech bubble, he had my undivided attention too.
Biffer the Dog is a legendary tale and should never be forgotten by anyone anywhere ever.
Best first panel ever.
I've got to stop reading this at work, I'm disturbing everyone else. I've been laughing for 10 minutes. I'm still laughing now as I write this. Every panel is hilarious on it's own and just get better when combined into the whole.
This is hands down the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Good work.
I felt sorry for the Doberman at first, but I know if a bigger dog was attacking one of my little dogs I would totally kick it in the junk.
"You sir, have my undivided attention." I literally guffawed - GUFFAWED, I tell's ya - when I read that first panel. Kicking a dog's junk... Why is the word "junk" when referring to balls so fucking funny?
That first panel is so good, I'm tempted to start every conversation with that sentence.
Did you hear the one about Chunks the dog?
...oh shit, I think I did this wrong.
That's three straight strips of topical junk, now. A new record!
Scott. You are. Brilliant.
The first panel would make a great t-shirt
Thank you. Oh God thank you. I needed that this morning.There's just something about groins being hit that continues to generate comedy gold...
OK so I've been reading your comics for quite a while now, as they are completely awesome, and for some reason I've never got around to proclaiming their awesome-ness via comment. I think if any strip deserves it, it's this one. Well done.
I can think of a few dogs in DC that need to have their junk kicked during a wheelbarrow race...and some of them may not actually have "junk" per se.
He had my undivided attention as well, because I first misread "kicking" as "licking."Whoops.
Oh man... that first panel. Hilarious.
Oh man...I can't breathe! I so wasn't expecting that first panel! I shouldn't be reading this at work, my stomach hurts from trying to laugh quietly.
I had to stop reading after the first panel while I took a 5 minute laugh break
