A google search of the ingredients in panel 4 returns Burger King ingredients and a possible match with MacDonald's too...

You can have my caffeine when you pry it from my cold, dead hands...after my heart explodes.

By the way, this was the strip that first introduced me to BI - I still love it

I hate fan-boyish comments that just say "this was awesome", but well, this was awesome.

I read it while drinking my morning coffee.

The copyright date on this comic is 2007. I think you missed the New Year!!!1!

Thank gOd that Salt, corn syrup and partially hydrogenated vegetable oil are healthy! Otherwise I wouldn't be able to eat a thing from the store outside of the fruits and vegetables aisle. I get mean when my Triglyceride level drops below 700.

I'd like to know what the image on the coffee cup in frame 2 is, please.

Note from scott: It's a toilet. It's the mug from a former project of mine. "Places I've Peed."

I can quit caffeine any time I want.

Any time. Really.

I just don't want to.

Scott, the year after the copyright is wrong! Wrong, I tell you!!!!! Quick, fix it before 2011 is here!!!!!!!!!

I missed this one the first time through. I have a new response to the pointless question "How are you?"

December 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJason

I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't use any other recreational drugs.

I gotta have something, dammit.

Panel 2: Constant pain; the price of health ... Oh so true ! That or "Constant boredom" ...

December 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike

This quote was great "Do you want to be alert and focused when your heart explodes?" Funny!

You guys can have my caffeine rations, they make me sleepy. Damn ADHD. . .

Did your wife lose weight?

Ok the coffee mug "places I've peed"...does that mean the toilet is a picture of a place you've peed, or is the toilet a marker that says "I peed in this coffee mug"?

As a coffee addicted person myself, I have to say that every single panel here is just Perfection!!

Scott and Missy.. hope you two have the best year ever in 2011!

I share Pestilence's curiosity re the coffee mug, but I'm sort of afraid to hear the answer. All right, Scott, what is this project of yours?

I have tried stopping my caffiene intake cold turkey. It was the worst five hours of my life!

December 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKatelyn

I gave up caffeiene a few years back. The headache goes away after 3 days, but needed Codeine to keep under control during that time. Since then I've found that I now feel like I used to after my morning cup of tea without a morning cup of tea, and get hardly any headaches anymore. Other than that, no obvious health impact.

Most recently though it is reported that large amounts of coffee daily is clinically proven to lessen the risk of, um, wait, it's coming to us, err, OH YEH, Alzheimer's....well, in mice

I bought two BI shirts and a book. Does that qualify me to burden you with my opinion? Rhetorical question. Shut up and listen. This instruction is my all time number one top shelf favourite. Tautology proves it. But after I risk internal laughter-related injuries at panel 3, panel 4 only draws a soft kind of 'haaaah' that sounds like a giggle having its tyres let down. Like a lot of my prose here, it's just superfluous. So there.

I know what food has the ingredients in panel 4; everything you don't make yourself from scratch.
