I'm amazed your still friends with Rick, it being "Possible, but highly unlikely" that anyone would want to call him... Poor Rick?

Pure gold!!

The first "to" in "I am to sexy" should be a too. Not "too" be "to" picky or anything...

I don't believe this comic, nobody would want to call Rick for any reason at all.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPablo

Panel 3 makes me laugh.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

I think I'm just a smidge uncomfortable at the idea of Rick doing that...

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterScott Glenn

Good to see you writing what you know.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterL33

Next time, buy a Rick saves time.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterW.R.Printz

"To sexy" should read "too sexy."

Great comic, though. The last panel was especially brilliant.

You do my dishes!

Lol'd at the third panel. Love your comics, keep em coming cause they're always hilarious. Rick looks genuinely surprised at the concept of someone wanting to talk to him.
P.S There is a mistake but I am going to let you find it. . . for suspense!

Panel one: "I'm to sexy for my shirt" should be "I'm too sexy for my shirt".

And yeah, that urban legend does lose some of its zing in the age of cell phones ... although it makes more technological sense now.

Now I have to interrupt a "NOOOOO" to ask a clarifying question and it's all your fault, Meyer!

The third panel sold it :D

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCruel Armpit

Hey I did the same thing with my Harry Potter books, Rick makes a way better main character!

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOwen

Awesome, just awesome.
"Wanna do the dishes?"
That had me laughing pretty hard.
As always thanks for helping time in the desert go by faster.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteinomite

In the first panel, it should be too, not to.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSpelling Man

If you start making better comics than this, you're going to have to owe me a new monitor. One day I will spray it with enough coffee to make it explode, I'm certain! xD

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKjelsberg

Ah, back in the days before Rick defeated Voldemort and freed the land from the clutches of the evil Roy Wozeley.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterInnominate

I can't get past the first panel. It's just too absurd. LOL.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

Caller ID has killed the whole obscene phone call genre. Is was very big when I was a kid. Now that I am an adult, I very much want to receive an obscene phone call. Why? To ask them to do the dishes, of coarse!

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

I would have the exact same expression as Rick in panel 1 if that was my ringtone

So sexy it huuurrr-ur-ur-ur-ur-ttttssss...

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterphaser

I noticed Adam Savage on the new episode of Mythbusters wearing an infini-tee, and practically had a seizure from the awesomeness of it all. AMAZING!

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMorganms2

I thoroughly enjoy that he answers his phone "Rrrrick-phone!"

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRyan

I'm going to start answering my phone "Rrrrrick-phone!" Too bad my name's not Rick...

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterImp

Every time I read the comments and see people correcting something insignificant, it makes me wish that you would run your grammar nazi strip again. Maybe you should run it monthly?
In other news, this strip made me cackle as usual!

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenni B

I laughed out loud at the fourth panel. Classic.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAce

Lol first panel was genius. I had to pause for like 2 minutes to laugh at the first panel before I could move on to the rest of the comic.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChare

LOL very great! Thnx Scott.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterReader

I read this comic for two reasons;
1) the humor, which always kicks ass.
2) the reassurance; no matter how lame my conversation, no matter how limited my "life", I can count on finding people here who are lamer than I and have less accomplishment...otherwise they would be too busy (picking lint out of the dryer trap, tying their shoes, buying tape at the store, et infinite cetera) to notice - let alone comment on - typos, copywright dates, and other triviality in an effort to prove how smart they are to Scott and his fans.
Keep it up, Ya, Nosh, Rebekah, and the rest. You make me feel better about my wretched existance.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

Well, I'D call Rick. He's sweet, and dorkariffic. And he puts up with a lot, it would seem.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCalamitybird

You had me at Rick's face in the first panel. Awesome!

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBella

Oh God, stop it grammar Nazis. Funny comic as always Scott. Rick's expression when his phone rings is priceless.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteven M.

I honestly thought that in the first panel, it was Rick throwing a funny stance and singing I'm too sexy :D
Which made it more funny when I realised it was his ringtone.
I love this website.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndy

That Harry Potter punchline really made me laugh. Poor ol' Rick.

December 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAdam S.

He Scott,

Seen Tron Legacy already? What did you think?

Greets, Reader

i'd read 'Rick and the Prisoner of Azkaban' any day!

December 20, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterinsomniac

"This comment is coming from"

That's pure comedy gold for nerds nick!

December 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRocketMan

I thought it was Rick throwing a funny stance because some part of his nether regions had burst out into singing "I'm Too Sexy."

If ANY part of MY nether regions started singing "I'm Too Sexy", I know I would throw a funny stance at the very, very least.
