Mmmm... beefmeat balls.

Your comics are pretty funny but this one had my ribs in pain from laughter. Bravo!

December 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Almost as good as a Tunaflesh sandwich...

Terribly dirty sounding conversation...

Why did Scott care if Rick offended the chef?

Bag Wag Sing!!! BAG WAG SING!!!

The funniest one in a while

I'd email this to my mother, who has made some exquisite gaffes in her time...but then I'd have to explain it, which would result in frosty silence and a demand to know "why do you think that's funny?"

Just curious: Were Chef's beefmeat balls salty and black?

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJudas Peckerwood

For you to be paying hard earned money to prevent beefmeat ball mayhem happening to that friend of yours sounds WAY out of character.

If there's a just and merciful god, he would allow this comic to be based in some way on true events.

I shudder to think of the sauce being prepared.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBiscus

This genuinely made me laugh so hard I cried.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJ-Man

Absolutely.... Best.... Ever...!

Nevertheless, I must warn you that in future you should delete the words 'crunchy frog', and replace them with the legend 'crunchy raw unboned real dead frog', if you want to avoid prosecution.

This is soooo 8th grade. I love it.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

Sometimes I'm the most annoying perfectionist stickler, but in panel two I'd replace typo with
"yeah, that was your first mistake".

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSkywalker

That waiter gets offended easily. :-P

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Thanks Scott I needed that, wonderful work.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRinkums

this one got me caught laughing with the office door open, great work!

...of course, here in Colorado, beefmeat balls are known as mountain oysters, but you have to be careful when ordering because that can also refer to sheepmeat balls.

Rick has sunk to a new low... And taken you with him.

If this is at all based on a real situation, I would never go back to that place to eat.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOldbear

Scott, I was only on the 2nd panel and I already busted out laughing. You are brilliant.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaisy

i think this is by far the funniest basic instructions ever. i was actually crying with laughter

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterhowtoreadbasicinstructions

So Scott, another one of those "real life" situations?

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikeN

I am from the UK, I can pick up the meanings from the context, but only from the context. Sorry.

December 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike Geordie Brown

This has the ring of "it happened in real life" to me, along with a little of "you had to be there."

Anybody else think Missy should be canonized -- while she's still alive?
We can turn of the computer and go home.

A restaurant near me in the Czech Republic has a steak with 'blue smegma' on the menu. I'm too terrified to try it.

December 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOwenLJ

For those of you who haven't thought this through;
Scott's efforts to avoid offending the chef aren't altruistic. The chef might take offense at the whole table and give everybody a piece of his...well...not exactly his mind.

December 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

potty humor

December 7, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

Beef meat balls !! :D Lol ! Hey Scott, what do you think about a "share" button for Fb ? Would love my friends to read it and it will get you more readers definitely ? :)

Was this funny? Capt. Pike says "Hell yes!", "Uh, I mean ...beep".

December 10, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterg33k

@ Judas P.: I think they were chocolate salty balls.

Someone asked my wife what shrimp were like. She told them that they had a texture sort of like a grape, but were slightly fishy.

For my own part, I like describing pickled herring in white wine as "fish candy" (it's sweet and fishy!)

December 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterColin

Once again you made me piss my pants. Either I am losing bladder control or your instructions are too funny for my pee and it wishes to escape.

Well Done!

I literally cannot read "Beefmeat balls" Without bursting into laughter. Hilarious.
