The TMBG Flood shirt made me the happiest.

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkappabird

That is an awesome name. Wow.

The Inconceivable Miracle Machine of Unusual Size?

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterInnominate

I think "The Dateless Dans" is catchy.

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTabitha

I agree... the whole toon was great... but you gotta love the Flood Shirt. How about "Iocaine Resistance" or ROUS or Fire Swamp.... or Six Fingered Man lol.

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

Brute Squad was a better name

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLuddite

Many, many, MANY years ago!!! Hahahaha!

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

He's got that pointy thing going on in the 4th panel again!!!!

November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

As a 22 year old, I can attest.

That IS why we do ANYTHING.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTSED

Rick is too sexy for his shirt. So sexy it hurts.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCJ

This was by far your best entry in a while Scott, and that's high praise!

"I'm 22, that's the only reason I do anything" made me laugh so hard, and the princess bride references were great.

Well done!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBella

Scott, now hear this! You should write a comic about hockey! ( a Canadian here).

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMe

I went with "Prepare to Die!"

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterW.R.Printz

Ah, it says Flood. I thought it was Flooo and couldn't place the obscure heartland americana band

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrother Random

Young Scott was portrayed in this strip by a young Brian O'Halloran.

Which coincidentally is who regular Scott sounds like in my head.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChowder

I do not think it means what you think it means.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Mad Scientist

The TMBG Flood shirt (I still listen to Istanbul and Particle Man a couple of times per month on average) make me squee-- awesome strip, Scot!

Seriously though, Right Said Fred? I guess your foil was just... umm... too sexy for his shirt.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterscgvlmike

I don't think it means what you think it means!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

Extra awesomeness points for the TMBG shirt.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKunou

It'd be cool if John Linnell would re-record "Particle Man" using the names of BI superhero characters. I bet he'd do it if we asked nicely.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbefuddled123

Oh, Flood! Whatever that refers to.
I read it as IOOOF (International Order Of Odd Fellows), which seemed not unreasonable.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDoug

as someone who's had to name many bands i enjoyed the shit out of this comic. holocaust cloak is an awesome name, i fully intend to steal it the second i start a grindcore/sludge or death/thrash project.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLordassenfroth

I'm 22, and I approve this message.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike

@Befuddled: I think Omnipresent Man would ruin the rhythm.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

I think "Six-Fingered Man" has a nice ring to it.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRick

Wow! The fact that they formed a Barbershop Quartet (in this day and age and with only two people) was the funniest climax of the comic. The catchy band name was the icing on the cake.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIDB

Friends of a friend got a hyacinth (blue) Macaw, and named him Indigo Montoya... Guess what they were teaching him to say!

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

Now you've got me thinking that Princess Buttercup would be a good name for a band... Hmmm.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteven M.


November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterhirsute

@Renee Fire Swamp, definitely.

Mawwage. Mawwage is vut bringz uf, togeva, today. Mawwage, vat bwessed awwangement, vat dweam wivin a dweam...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHoboSnake

Omnipresent man, Omnipresent man,
Happens to be everywhere he can...
Where is he now? It's not important.
Omnipresent man

Does he get lost, or does he not move?
What is it that he has got to prove?
Anywhere he would not wanna be?
Everyone's seen, Omnipresent man...

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBobisOnlyBob


From 49 I can tell you it's the only reason anyone ever does anything.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkhereva

I considered starting a band just to call it "Holocaust Cloak" when I realised I just missed the entire point of Basic Instructions.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersnowyowl

i got to the third panel before I noticed the "Right Said Fred" shirt. ROFL.

November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMark

I think I ruptured something trying to hold in the "Nard Muscle" laughter. Wife is in the room. Didn't want to have to explain. Then get punched.

November 4, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermisterfweem

You had me at NARD MUSCLE

November 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

I'm imagining what other cast members looked like, many many years ago, , ,

November 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterImaginin

rocket hat (man) rocket hat (man)
flies through the air, tiny rim in his hand
all tied up, but he'll foil their plan
rocket hat (man)

is he deformed
or is he not warm?
why does he always look hunched and scorned?
who can stop his rocket plan?
nobody knows rocket hat (man)

November 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTom G

I would do anything to be in a band called NARD MUSCLE!!! Even if I'm the dancing guy like in Mighty Mighty Bosstones!
