Due to a case of strep throat on my part (The part it was on was ... the throat) and an anticlimactic health scare for my wife, there will be a rerun on Friday. Missy's fine, and has written up a blog post about the whole thing.
Great strip. Technically.
Finally, someone who really gets it.
Truly, you have brought it of the funny here to us today.
Seriously, once I win the lottery, I want to hire you to do all my smack-talking, Scott.
Great comic and good health to both of you!
Ah, literal interpretation of idioms. Endless fun for the whole family.
Missy has Crohn's? Poor dear. Oh, I know the whole drill. I think my insurance funded a couple hospital wings for about ten years. Technically, I'm in remission, but I still get obstructions due to adhesions from a couple of resections where small & large intestine hook up.I get the chest pains, too, have had them ever since before I was diagnosed with Crohn's on NYE 1984. Mystifies the doctors, it's not my heart, they put it down to stress, sometimes the chest pains were a warning before a major flare up. Taking all that Prednisone for ten years probably didn't help either. Hoping she gets better.
Haha, my favourite for ages.
Technically, in frame 3, I think he is about to rip one.
It was awesome. I think, just maybe, I got it!
The goods: thank you.
I loved the second panel!
I felt sorry for Rick in the 2nd panel. but I still laughed.
i brought "it" to the bank and just got released from jail
I thought "it" might be BBQ sauce based on an historical analysis of prior strips. I also agree with Mikey. "It" was sure looking like impending flatulence release in panel 3.
Sorry you guys had a health scare. Old age is not for sissies. Lots of scares to come...on the bright side.
do they ever visit the gentremen's club any more
Panel 2! Rick should have won, imho.
You guys sure love your Monopoly. The game seemed a little boring without unbridled hedonism though.
First time I've laughed at just the title! Excellent ^_^
I get it... but I'm not a big fan of it. Reminds me of back in grade school when a boy was looking for his "thingy" (a paint palette) and all us dirty minded classmates kept telling him it was in his pants.
"'What will I do with this much of it,' you'll ask."
I love Scott and Rick's battles of swaggering repartee.
My favorite 'It' is the one Bruce Campbell was talking about in the Old Spice commercial a while back.
Also, sorry to hear about the health scare. I may post something over there about my take on it. Glad it's turned out to be nothing serious!
A thought from a post I made in your wife's blog: How to tell if the pain in your chest is "Chest Pain" or just a pain in your chest.
Subtitle: "You hear that Elizabeth? I'm coming to join you honey!"
(Surely I'm not the ONLY one around here that remembers Sanford and Son.)
(I know, I know "And don't call you Shirley...")
I am relieved that it wasn't serious!
Monopoly? Better with more people to make trades.
When one is to bring it to the board game table. Bring it with Agricola.
Wow. I don't know whether it's funnier with the innuendo or without.
Monsters like your super literal brand of humor. Strep on your part. Your throat part. Ha!
This reminds me of "It is GO TIME! and DOWN is the DIRECTION you will be GOING!!"
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ahhhhh.......monopoly........I sense a theme
You bring it!
Panel two made me laugh out loud. Well done.
