You may be onto something in that last panel
It's very good to use our friends hobbies to our advantage. The post is very useful and interesting. It helps in a very different and unique way. Thanks.

"...best running song ever recorded by man..."LOL. I'll never see a marathon the same way again!
On the other hand, you had me with "It was all healthy, athletic people looking miserable."
haha! As a runner, I love this even more. "Freaky runners' parade" and "healthy, athletic people looking miserable" are perfect! I love the imagery of the horrible fast-motion song reference. Oh Benny Hill...
As a Brit, the concept that any other country, let alone the straight-laced Yanks, "get" Benny Hill, remains bizarre.
"It's your scene, man." Ahahaha. And it only gets better after that.Brilliant, I shall use this henceforth when sports (activities) come up. I'm just not a sporty person, although I do work out for health reasons (the bare minimum really).
. o O ( Benny Hill show! )
Dammit. Now I'm going to hear "Yakety Sax" in my head every time I see a marathon on TV. And in person for that matter.
No way!!!! My ordeal is over, Yakety Sax, it's called Yakety Sax!
Also, ace comic you've got goin' on here.
Yakety Sax got me.
I'm glad I'm not the only out of shape guy that enjoys watching the athletic suffer! I'm starting to think I have a long lost brother in you Scott. Same hairstyle, same goatee, same geekiness, and now the same disdain for athletic people. Love this strip!
Thank you for giving me something to enjoy about running
Hurray Benny Hill!
I almost inhaled my breakfast. Nice one. :D
That's it: I have to watch a marathon on fast-forward with YS playing.
This is now my favorite basic instructions yet...ha ha ha!
i do jogging everyday with an MP3Player but the idea of running with Benny Hill theme song's tunes is brilliant, just brilliant 8) and the third panel is gold, as usual (;big fan from VN!
That song has a name?!?!? REALLY!!! Awesome!
Now... to swipe my boss' phone to add a default ringtone....
Hahahahaha I never never ever will understand exercise for fun
Hah, yeah I don't run either. It just looks like agony. Apparently, you have to be a runner to understand. And as such, I don't run. It's a painless cycle. (Nor do I cycle.)
Benny Hill! Yes! Great comic!
As a marathon runner myself, I have to say I loved this strip. "Freaky runners' parade" and "healthy, athletic people looking miserable" - brilliant!
I work out to stay in shape. Running is one of those things I do. I wouldn't call it fun, though. Rick is a strange, strange man.
Well, I did get one thing out of this. "Yakety Sax" didn't ring a bell, so I went and searched on YouTube. Of course, it turns out to be one of those tunes we've all heard, but without necessarily knowing what it's called. Now I know. Never watched much Benny Hill, but it's been used a background music for a lot of things.
Is your RSS broken? I thought you hadn't updated the site in over a month! Now I come to find out I just lost your feed. Comic's hilarious, by the way. Delightful, if I may say.
I don't exercise, but "Yakety Sax" is on my working in the warehouse playlist, and has been for some months. Give it up for Boots Randolph.
Here's the most triumphant use of Yakety Sax I've come across:

My dad used to watch Benny Hill, I am a better person for it. Now that I know the name of the theme song, I am complete.It must be said that this song improves anything it's paired with.Cheers!
it make everything funny! Even Forrest Gump hahaha
