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.

" 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."

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCR

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.

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermisterfweem

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!

"Yakety Sax"

I almost inhaled my breakfast. Nice one. :D

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

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!

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkalousx

That song has a name?!?!? REALLY!!! Awesome!

Now... to swipe my boss' phone to add a default ringtone....

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClumber

Hahahahaha I never never ever will understand exercise for fun

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCecilia

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.)

January 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShan

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!

January 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichael

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.

January 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteven M.

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.

January 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDArtagnon

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.

January 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLim

Here's the most triumphant use of Yakety Sax I've come across:
(Battlefailed - Guzzlebones and Undead Muskox vs a Cat)

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.
