Hey, Missy has new glasses? Nice
It's funny, because I've used my wife's peppermint soap before, and it true.
Why the fervid dismay on hearing about someone's body? Are your characters in 8th grade?
Contravention of (say) the Geneva Convention is disturbing. Hearing about someone's erogenous zones is not disturbing -- unless maybe you're rabidly, anxiously homophobic.
The rarely discussed dark side of Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap, in action! (... "had eaten an Altoid," now I have a useful simile, thanks! Heh.)
Mint on. Mint off.
I love using peppermint soap for the exact same reason!
The second panel was great. And then the third panel came along and was better. And the fourth was just as good too. It was AWESOME!
Did you have to give Mullet-boss a creepy pedophile grin? I intended to sleep tonight, but nevermind!
Also, the banter was excellent.
THE DETAILS ARE NOT IMPORTANT!!!
Well, someone had to say it.
quantum hall effect
Just in time for the holidays!
May I be the first to say: this is a funny strip.
Contrary to what Missy said.. I can totally see what he could have said that would be so bad :D
"...as if his erogenous zones had eaten an Altoid."
So wrong, on so many levels.
And poor Missy still talks to him about work.
LOL There was no way he WASN'T going to tell her!
Half of me is repulsed, the other half intrigued.
I sense something has changed with the Mullet Boss, but I know not why...
yay! i'm the first! Now I'm curious about feeling minty with a mint soap. Time for some shopping. Bye.
I get the feeling the "Peppermint Soap" was actually this exotic body wash called "Crest"
I got a laugh from this strip because not long ago I bought some Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap--which does, indeed, make the "sensitive parts" seem "minty"--a real wake-me-up in the morning shower! Also, I was visiting a friend when I used it for the first time--and instead of describing the sensation, I invited him to try it and see what he thought.
Yup, he was minty all right...
I suspect that is what may have inspired this particular strip. Anyway, very entertaining--I enjoy your series very much, and have recommended to others that they subscribe to the RSS feed as I do. Thanks!
I love these comics! XD
Unsuspecting protagonist "Oops, I'm all out of mint, I'm late for my date and I don't want bad breath"
Mullet Boss "I can help you out there..."
Protagonist "Um, no thanks!"
Hahahaha oh my god
Erogenous zones eating an Altoid ! Crackingly funny spin on the original of panel #3
I will never be able to consume Altoids again.
now I want mint soap.
Dr. Bonner's Pure Castile Peppermint Soap - I use it every day!
I find the same thing with peppermint shampoo, but I can only use it once every few months or the effect isn't as strong anymore.
I believe this is the first time he's happy in the comics.
I used to like Altoids. Wow, buh bye 'toids...
"I feel minty!"Now I'll never get that phrase out of my head!
There are no words.
More disturbing than the secret: MulletBoss' expression when he's feeling minty. Creepy.
Ahhh, the minty magic of Dr. Bronners!
Happiness derived from the appliance of something needing a lather on one's erogenous zones is definitely the kind that should be kept to oneself. If you're inventive, you can even make use of said lathering.
Ha Ha, I love mullet boss's (bosses? Boss'?) "smiley face" :P Excellent comic as always!
When my wife rubs IcyHot all over her legs, I tell her she smells like the Peppermint Fairy just crapped on some toothpaste.
That's what this comic reminds me of. Awesome as usual.
What does it say about me if I would not be bothered by that and instead end up getting into a heated discussion about crotch scent?
That smile is incredibly disturbing, and your look of disgust in panel 3 is excellent work.
Omg, the comic was awesome. The comments just as funny and creepy.
