Ah, the righteous fist of the elder brother! Long may it clench!

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPhil McCracken

Is that suppose to be your dad?

Note from Scott: actually, he's my younger brother, and he's appeared in one other strip.

Who the heck is this new guy? Or is this some guy who's been in like, one other comic before?

Did Mullet Boss shave his head?

October 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteranimus

Holy shit! I think I've been a passenger in your car!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJudas Peckerwood

Haha! This reminds me of riding with a few of my relatives. Especially the part about the "non-at-fault" accidents. Defensive driving people! If I get killed while riding in your car, I don't care whose fault it is!

solid. so funny. thanks scott. so few things make me actually laugh.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterchet

Soooo true!!!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLee Ramirez

is that your daddy?

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfurrymark

This makes me proud to have better clutch control (yes, we drive stick over here) than my brother.
Speaking of relations, is that Fu-ManMeyer your brother or your dad? Never seen this guy in the strip before.

Great comic, thnx Scott!

*chuckles at the confusion of some of the comments about the "new" guy*

All the more reason everyone who likes Scott's works should buy his books. Seriously. IMHO, it is even better reading this stuff in print*.

*no, Scott is not paying me.

This is so much like me and my brother-in-law. I get sick every time I drive with him, from the lurching he does!

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWally

Unlucky is definitely not the word that i would choose for panel 2.

"If I get killed while riding in your car, I don't care whose fault it is!" Amen, Patrick, amen.

It is worth noting that Scott's brother looks exactly like him, but a clean-shaven chin and lighter-colored facial hair and shirt.

Put another way, Scott looks exactly like his brother, but with a black goatee and black shirt.

Scott is the evil twin.

I can stand some lurching, the ones that paralyze me with fear are drivers that insist on making eye contact with their passenger while maneuvering through tight, fast traffic; do they think they can watch traffic with with the ear that's pointing at the windshield?

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

So...has Basic Instructions been properly pitched as a television comedy series yet? If not, please let me know. It should be. This was a classic!

Note from Scott: I once wrote a sitcom treatment for UClick, but I'm unsure how many producers ever saw it. We'll see if "Shat My Dad Says" continues to be a success. If so, I suspect TV will turn it's attention to the internet for ideas in a big way.

"As long as you think it from the passenger seat"

We all know someone who needs to be told that.

October 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKobold

I'm afraid your brother's facial hair has gained victory this day.

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSebaschan

I recall several drivers from times past that became permanent passengers when traveling in groups for exactly this reason. The potential for vomit induction via sudden changes in accelerations (the physics term is "jerk.").

P.S. Like the Mirror-Mirror reference, Tan.

Truer words were never written:

"Humoring petty sniping helps nobody."

October 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

Excellent work- Nice writing & images- clear, purposeful stuff!
Respect, from a fellow traveller (& hopefully soon 2-B published aspiring Comic Book/ G. Novel Creator)

"Shat My Dad Says" that a typo for "What My Dad Says", or am I even more behind the times than I thought I was?

October 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

You're even more behind the times than you thought.

The reference is "Shit My Dad Says", so it's probably a deliberate typo to circumvent filters or some such deal. Or to make sure the comment is published.

And... I guess we'll see if my comment is approved, now.

Jesse Ventura as a guest on the strip - nice.

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterwhomever

Heh, he said "a hole."
