The third panel is solid gold!

August 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCBS

The second panel is my favourite. Making fun of the media's recent trend of adding "man" to the beginning of random words (see the spate of articles about "mancations", "man rooms", etc.)

Second Panel: "Eveyone?"

Great strip, Scott. Love the third panel. The whole thing is LOL funny.

I've been trying to think of a good name for my Roomba for a while now but haven't been able to think of anything that just felt right... until now.

Behold! My Roomba: RoBart!

Tremble, as he *chooses* to vacuum my living room (seemingly) of his own free will every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 1:00 PM! RoBart, and RoBart alone, chooses the path of robotic cleanliness! RoBart, and RoBart alone, decides when he declare the cleaning ritual to be complete and return to his home dock for meditation! And FEAR, fellow humans, as RoBart does not come equipped with the Three Laws of Robotics, so be sure to raise your feet when you're sitting on the couch if he approaches!

"Yes, but you're not much of a man." Awesome.

His name is The Mullet-Haired Boss.

August 17, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteramber

Love this. But The Mullet-Haired Boss is actually more mullet than man, right?

When I saw title in my RSS feed, I thought, ah, another Rick-stravaganza. But after clicking on title, I discover we get a Mullet-pa-loser festival, instead.

BTW, just for laughs, can you go to Jib-Jab and check out their Jaws parody, Jowls? It'd be awesome to see a version with you, Rick and Mullet.

Laughed so much on the 3rd panel it ruined the timing for the 4th. You're some kind of man, Scott

Super extra massive double secret points for the Eliminators reference. (Okay, it might be a comic book reference. I'm sticking with Eliminators.)

Unless I'm mistaken, there doesn't appear to be anything connecting Scott's word bubbles to his mouth in the second panel. Third panel was gold.

August 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLaminar

Looks like it's connected directly to his cranium.... or maybe it's his crotch.

August 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKonidias

Haha! This is my favourite one so far I think. So funny. Great work.

The first time a cardiologist told me that a pacemaker might be an option, I interrupted by saying, "You'd make me a CYBORG? Sweet!"
Needless to say, the cardiologist was not amused.

August 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSunshine

Aw, c'mon, RoBart but not RoBoss?

Or is that too predictable?

August 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterToaster

Do you not see how they are connected to EACH OTHER and that the second bubble is connected to his mouth? How do you not see that?

Or is this now opening the door to Drawing Nazis... and I just didn't notice the lack of connection when I looked at this strip a couple of days ago, but since your post Scott has "corrected" his drawing? PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NO!!!!!!

August 18, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

Actually, they were right. One of the two mistakes in this strip was that the balloon they mentioned wasn't connected to my mouth. It has been corrected.

August 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterscott

You know, I can't think of a scenario where a word bubble is connected to a crotch that ISN'T funny.

August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Actually the best way to see a co-worker in a new light is to just change the flourescent bulbs out from cool to warm light bulbs. Bet that works.

I just recently had open heart surgery and ended up getting a pacemaker because the lower part of my heart basically stopped working. This strip had me almost literally falling off my chair laughing; I'll never look at my pacemaker the same way again! LOVE IT!

That 3rd panel is made of Win

I enjoyed the humor in this comic, but I particularly loved the message. Thank you.

"I think something about you is cool. Let's just leave it at that."

I've always thought of Mullet Boss's name as Clyde. As in, "Reno is for Clydes".

May 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLesath

Is there a Bart who was the rotoscope model for Mullet Boss? Or is Bart the name of one of Scott’s former bosses? Is that the joke?
