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.)

November 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBlade

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.

Well, someone had to say it.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrorschak

Just in time for the holidays!

May I be the first to say: this is a funny strip.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoel

Contrary to what Missy said.. I can totally see what he could have said that would be so bad :D

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterxenapan

" if his erogenous zones had eaten an Altoid."

So wrong, on so many levels.

And poor Missy still talks to him about work.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbill

LOL There was no way he WASN'T going to tell her!

Half of me is repulsed, the other half intrigued.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlex

I sense something has changed with the Mullet Boss, but I know not why...

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThe Chosen One

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"

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLayne

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

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVoltron

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!"

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOwen

Hahahaha oh my god

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjcp

Erogenous zones eating an Altoid ! Crackingly funny spin on the original of panel #3

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike

I will never be able to consume Altoids again.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJason

now I want mint soap.

Dr. Bonner's Pure Castile Peppermint Soap - I use it every day!

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJaymz in Seattle

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.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSolak

I believe this is the first time he's happy in the comics.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterelfakyn

I used to like Altoids. Wow, buh bye 'toids...

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJeff

"I feel minty!"
Now I'll never get that phrase out of my head!

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

There are no words.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRosie

altiods ftw!

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternavarro

More disturbing than the secret: MulletBoss' expression when he's feeling minty. Creepy.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEthan

Ahhh, the minty magic of Dr. Bronners!

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBinq

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.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterScott Glenn

Ha Ha, I love mullet boss's (bosses? Boss'?) "smiley face" :P Excellent comic as always!

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiggity Mike

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.

November 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSobek

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?

November 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIcalasari

That smile is incredibly disturbing, and your look of disgust in panel 3 is excellent work.

November 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBill

Omg, the comic was awesome. The comments just as funny and creepy.
