"Human Poop Camel" would be a good name for a band.
I admit that was the line that made me laugh out loud.
I love helping people see the bright side when they complain about life. It's the best way to get them to stop complaining.
In this case, the details are particularly not important!
I think what I'll take from this is the phrase "Human Poop Camel".
I feel so guilty laughing as much as I did at poop jokes, but damnit, I couldn't help myself! :D
Favorite parts: "You're saying I can't poop because I'm too defeatist" and "You've become a human poop camel!"
"Human poop camel" for the win...
and the headlines read "MAN KILLED BY FLYING CORK... strange brown mud floods city"
Going to the bathroom is a sign of weakness! Way to be strong, Ric! (keep up those kegels)
Haha! Great as always!
Rick needs more fiber in his diet!
...Oh God I have to send this to my mother. Other people's bowel functions are one of her favorite subjects, next to the facial expressions of fish.
Er... maybe you should go back to twice a week if you're spreading yourself that thin...
I was just waiting for Kegels to appear in panel 4.
The "human poop camel" reminds me of a book when I was a young lad, "Everyone Poops." To this day, I remember "A one hump camel makes a one hump dump, while a two hump camel makes a two hump dump." Fond memories.
Well done, Scott!
I love that pose in the 3rd panel. Scott, that's your best look.
Brilliant as always!"You've become a human poop camel!" Now I now what to to say to my girlfriend when she's constipated:D
As a middle aged guy, I can really relate to this one. Right now, unfortuneately..
Rick is *exactly* right at the end :-(
You've still got it, Scott. Human poop camel. Amazing.
I'm the first one! It's funny Scott
7 minutes late. Sigh. However, one of the better. Good take on the half-empty/full problem.
Poor Rick, I wonder if this one will make it to his parents fridge.
Love it, now I'm more than half full of laughter!
Great comic! It reminds me of me!
I really like the new posting schedule! Hopefully you can double up once more soon!
I'm 52 years old and I still laugh at potty humor.
Of course, I laugh at pretty much everything. I'm trying to train myself to make my laugh sound evil and foreboding, but it's kind of hard when flecks of spittle accumulate on the screen. Somebody needs to invent a laptop squeegee.
Um, what were we talking about?
When you start to try to please everyone you become unhappy.
Keep up the good work, Scott.
Oh, it's there. It's just waitin on me.
Man, Ric is taking some serious hits this week. Oof.
Last panel is absolutely epic. Still laughing....! :-)
Ahh, the hilarity of poop jokes :)
I can't believe that "Human Poop Camel" elicited a noisy laugh from me. Man, I'm so much lower than I like to think I am... :-(
Human Poop Camel - basically another Superhero origin story? Or would that be a Supervillian origin story, since I can think of no good that can come from such a being.
Human Poop Camel" would be a good name for a band.
this was great. thank you so much for making such an awesome comic! human poop camel haha. who comes up with this stuff!?!?!
Hahaha... Rick is taking some (very amusing) hits lately.
I was about to sneeze just as I was reading the lines in third panel. Sneezing + LOLing = ... Well, let's just say I wouldn't want to be my keyboard. Ew. Great comic, as usual, though.
Here's a definite cure for constipation: Fly "Ryanair". The plane's bathrooms are pay toilets. The second you get on the jet the ONLY thing you can think about is how much you have to "go".
This strip should be labeled NSFW--not from the content, but because I laughed so hard that my boss now wants to know why I'm surfing the web when I should be working.
This one almost looks like an allegory for how people react to clinical depression. Most people assume that it's just a severe case of being 'bummed out' that a person should just snap out of, when in reality there are physiological factors at stake. Just as in the comic, where the 'helpful advice' is rendered obviously absurd by framing it against the more commonly understood need to drop a deuce while constipated - a person who is clinically depressed is physically unable to simply drop it.
On the other hand, maybe it's really just a comic about needing to shit.
An ass half full.
