That would be one frightening puppet.

Just commenting to point out that the copyright on your new strips still says 2009.

The first two panels were "laugh-out-loud" funny, the last two were "broad-smile" funny. Good stuff!

OMG SO TRUE and so good <3

Dude, that's not a puppet. It's a voodoo doll!! Run, run for your life!! (oh yeah, and be less happy)

omfg, I'm Rick!

Wow. You hate happy people too, in addition to athletic people?!? Damn, if you were a woman, I think I'd propose.

I am sorry, but Rick looks so unnatural smiling. Very disturbing. Am I alone here?

"Happy Rick" is the creppiest Rick ever... So, no angry Rick until his new lady's meds wear off?

February 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOldbear

Now I see why Rick was never shown smiling. It's terrible, horrible, impossible to comprehend.
I think I need a shower...

Man, I know that one.

"She had a puppet of me made!"

Classic! Great strip Scott!

There should be a "Happy Rick" bobble head. THAT would be scary!

February 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteven M.

Great stuff! I'm impressed.

I'm now wondering if the "Rick" puppet comes in the boxing variety so I can pit him against my devil, Jesus and nun boxing puppets...wonder who would win?

A friend of mine just made a puppet version of her husband. His name is Nelson, so the puppet is "Half Nelson".
He's a little freaked out by it.

February 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterstevetassie

that smile will haunt my dreams, Scott. Seriously.

I would buy a Rick Puppet.

Great comics! And I KNOW Ric -- that looks just like him and he isn't really creepy when he smiles!

February 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDr. Dan

I have to stop reading your comic right before bed.
Happy Ric is downright frightening.

P.S. - but should he get married again, try to get him to do it wearing his Ming the Merciless robes!

I just want to know two things -- when did I get to be your best friend and how do you know so much about me?

April 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRick (yeah, really)

Is Rick really this strange and off-putting? Or do you write him like this to piss him off?

July 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKEv

haha, that reminds me of my father. lmao.

August 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSarahJean

Don't EVER talk to a Happy Person! They can only bring you down.

Ink blot joke is hilarious. I'm going to keep that one on hand for the appropriate situation.

Other people's happiness tends to rub off on me. Seeing someone laugh makes me want to start to, whether I know why or not.

I don't think I hate them all, just the ones who won't let me be happy with them. Unless they are my colleagues, who got something I did not that I wanted. Then that's bad.
