Epic Miley burn!

As someone who gets in to work at 7:45 on a regular basis, I love this one!

I love the Miley Cyrus idea. I keep hitting the snooze two, three, hack even four times in a row before I finally drag myself out of bed. You're a genius.

Scott, you're overachieving again. Each of these panels could stand by themselves as their own comic. Too funny! But don't use up all your mojo, K?

why is scott's co-worker giving a semi "live long and prosper" hand signal?

I aaalways wondered about those freaks who liked to come in early (gives me more respect for them....I had thought they were just using their co-workers' computers to download porn)

Four panels. Four solid punch lines. It's like four comics in one.

Must not think about the number four...

Repeat but good

first panel? i actually laughed out loud. i do the same thing.

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdave

It actually took me a minute to stop laughing so I could get to the fourth panel.

Thank you for putting down Miley Cyrus. I guess there is still some sense in the world and I'm glad to see it coming from you Scott.

Solid entry! Good advice too.
I wish I had an alarm clock like that!

Wondered why I occasionally get déjà vu with these strips.
Today I realised that I'm seeing some of them in advance on 'Cracked'...

Still very funny though.

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

Haha. If I was going in to work early for that, I might actually enjoy it.

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFinal Rush

Hahaha. I've been at the office since 7 am. Great strip as usual! Just don't tell my boss I've shuffled his files.

hey~ miley sings pretty well, i kinda like her, have you listened to her track called 'Take me along'? that's one of my favorite wake-up songs.

One of my favorite things about your comic is picking which speech bubble correlates with the facial expression. Usually the fourth panel is the best for this... but I've seen some dingers in the second too.

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Scott, do you still work for Disney? If so, it seems interesting you'd go after their big moneymaker.

When I have to work early I just put the alarm clock far enough from the bed that I have to actually get out of bed to turn it off. Once I've done that, it isn't worth getting back into the bed for that little snooze time.

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHari

Apparently, Scott saves time by sleeping in the same black T-shirt he wears for everything else. Genius!

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterUncle Martin

i come in early to read webcomics...

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternobody special

I used to put music that I didn't like on my alarm too, but it always ended up subconsciously conditioning me to like it...

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteralexeyt

Heh. Looks like a dude in your bed asking about your alarm. and my shift starts at 5am. 2:30 am isn't the middle of the night for me anymore. but rather and hour and a half before i have to wake up.

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJason

Hands up who'd rather sleep with Miley than be woken by her?

December 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavo

Is 7:45 early? The latest my "normal" start time has ever been was 7:30 but that was 26 years ago.

December 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWade

Awesome comics all around!

December 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLuke314pi

I'm amused by the animosity aroused by Miley Cyrus. I'm not very familiar with her, but I understand that she is a Disney channel actor / pop star that caters to gradeschoolers. Being an adult, I have never been exposed to a single one of her songs, and only rarely seen a glimpse of her show on a TV in a store. How does anybody learn to hate such a niche celebrity?

December 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDrowlord

I like to imagine the last caption of the third panel as, "Wrong. Wrong. WRONG!"

December 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFC

I get there at 5am. I think I win.
