perfect! Frame 2 is my favorite. New character?

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKschobert

OK, yes, that is freaking brilliant.

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTim McCormack

Who's the new guy??!?

And I never owned a "see 'n' say" ... in fact, I've never even heard of one, and ironically never seen one either.

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJawfin

Indeed. The cow goes moo. Great comic. I would definitely buy something like that if I had children. Teach them
what being a parent is really like.

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterquesito

I love the comic, and I also love how Scott and his generation apparantly remember every toy they had as kids. I'm younger than he is, and all I remember are legos.

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBWM

A…new character?

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter|Agent

"Does the cow go moo?"

Could that line be used in a Geico commercial?

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChris S.

Best closing line in any comic strip ever?

November 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJerodast

One of the best ones, so far. Panel 2 was my favorite

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterM Bearry

The drawing in the fourth panel appeared to me, out of context, to be a Stanley knife with a hilt shaped like a rooster, or cock, if you will.

It was an interesting image.

The second panel makes the me go 'lol'

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

I had a speak'n'spell, btw ... Who's the new guy?

I saw The Doobie Brothers Sunday night. Their current keyboardist looks exactly like future-Scott!

Panel 2: completely true.

"I am horrified by your plan, and would like to invest". Unfortunately, I haven't made the expected return on the "Retina Printer" yet...

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRinkums

Dude, there are already things like this

Wouldn't it be more effective if pushing the stroller was the only way to make the sirens stop?

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCalvin Spealman

I think I've seen this one before...

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpeanut

The best gift (if you dislike the parents) is a toy that makes a lot of noise, eventually the parents will prefer the kid crying over the toy they removed rather than continue to suffer.

I like doing evil in the guise of good, does that make me a bad person i wonder :D

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStone

Well, what are you waiting for? To the patent office!

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDoorslammer

That may be the best punchline ever and I intend to use it liberally. But technically, I do believe the See and Say phrase was "The cow says moo."

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermoojen

I am not sure whether to laugh or cry. I have 3 teenagers. One in college, one a senior and another just turned 16. *keeps repeating 5 more years, 5 more years*

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAC

Who is that guy?

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFox k

As a parent, I have to point out the fundamental flaw here: what grown-ups see as irritating, children see as fun. I know my girls would both love a baby-yelling stroller.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatthew Miller

Awesome. Sounds like half of my kid's toys.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTBA

I'd so buy one.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlmost Pure

Not a bad invention...as Scott's inventions go. Sadly, not all have been winners. Remember this one?
http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2008/2/28/how-to-develop-an-invention.html

I kinda liked it.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPanhandle Bob

"Does the cow go moo" will henceforth replace all mentions of bears' excretory habits and possibly replace comments about religious figures' hats.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJess

'you and your team'? holy hair follicles! is scott a middle manager? or, who is the unnamed new guy?

(i humbly apologize in advance if he is already introduced in a book)

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterirrogical

"Actually, I was trying to use logic to make your head explode"...best line ever :-)

Keep it up Scott

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteritjustwerks

This one made me think a little bit, until the logic made my head explode. damn you.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

Yes, yes, the cow DOES go moo!

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSolak

Panel 3 is the elephant in the room.

I hear him trumpeting.

Are those the sounds of trampling feet the size of, well, umbrella stands?

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

This has much possibility for mischeif.

*shoves onto street in front of car* SAVE MY BABY!!!

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStockholm

My god, that could actually work.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMary

Does the pig go oink?

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTabitha

2nd panel is tres clever.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShan

The end of panel 3 is almost certainly verbatim for just about every meeting discussing ad-campaigns geared towards teens. Classic.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterironnmetal

Who's the new character? I don't recognize him.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTurnuptheradio2

Panel Three is money, hahaha.

November 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRay

BWM said "I also love how Scott and his generation apparantly remember every toy they had as kids. I'm younger than he is, and all I remember are legos."

That's because around 1980 they phased out out the cool children's toys that had real maiming or killing potential. For our generation, being able to remember toys was an essential survival skill.
