Hahaha! The first panel is roaringly funny on its own!

Genius! You have done it again Scott! Love the comic man, keep up the great work!

December 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPhil

It's self-deprecating humor... No, it's a dig at that animated show... No, the panel has no one in the frame (I'm frightened)... No, it's a normal BI, after all. Phew! That was close.

Wow, awesome. SERIOUSLY. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be requesting many installments of Comic-Con-Fusion. Come on! Even if it's once a month I'd look forward to it.

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNick

Oooh! It's a meta comic!

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdubcroster

The third panel delivers the funny!

1st frame...

"off course"

If he's doing webcomics why is he just studying what Americans find amusing? All this time I thought WWW stood for WorldWideWeb. Now I find out it stands for AmericanWideWeb?? Oh well, since I'm not American I'll just have to stop reading this webcomic. Goodbye.

'Bye Dana! I'll miss you.

I hate you. I need a new keyboard.

I'm guessing panel two is a reference to Seth MacFarlane, though it seems to be missing a letter.

That's great - I think my next Hallowe'en costume will be as Irritable Bowel

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAJ

@Soul of Wit-- I think you mean "self-defecating" humor.

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKate

I love the self-defecating humor.

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTom

ah ha! rick has finally turned the tables.

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterirrogical

@Scott H., pretty sure he means Todd McFarlane, the comic toy mogul and Spawn guy. :)

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmber

The MacFarlane code, of course!

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

Was it a typo or a Spawn reference?

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChris

The reference to "the McFarlane Code" went over my head .... What's being referred to?

Note from scott: Seth McFarlane, creator of Family Guy.

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBob L

Please do a full Comic-Con-Fusion comic!

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLuke314pi

McFarlane code.. lol... awesome as usual, Scott.. thank you :)

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercheryl

Sadly, that is exactly how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created.
(I wish that was a joke)

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

@Kate-- i think he means ''self-depreciating'' humor

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbigdaddy

Comic very funny. Kate's comment, also very funny. So rewarding when commenters take the artist's joke and build on it... and Dana, I think Rob was being a bit... critical... of American humour. I don't think he has imperialist ambitions... yet. ;-)

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCanuckMom

I will totally read that comic. What will its url be?

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRich

Canadians suffering from Overcompensating Irrelevant Country Jingoism are funny.

Adam was wearing his Infini-Tee on tonight's Mythbusters!

December 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFrax

Hope we'll all hear more from Nervous Bladder and Irritable Bowel. On second thought...

December 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMad Crow

It's Seth MACfarlane, dude.

Note from Scott :Right you are. It has been corrected.

December 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrian

The artwork in "Comic-con-fusion" makes me want to see more of Scotts drawing, rather than his Xeroxing.

December 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjeric

How's the new girl at work, Athena, doing?

December 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

This comic really speaks to me.

December 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLazy Eye

@bigdaddy: I said & meant self-deprecating, but self-defecating is funnier.

modest about or critical of oneself, esp. humorously so : self-deprecating jokes.
self-deprecatingly |ˈˈsɛlf ˈdɛprəˈkeɪdɪŋli| adverb
self-deprecation |ˈˈsɛlf ˈdɛprəˈkeɪʃən| noun
self-deprecatory adjective
USAGE Of the two combinations self-depreciating (which dates from the mid 19th century) and self-deprecating (which dates from the mid 20th century), self-depreciating better reflects the long-established usage of depreciate in the sense of ‘disparage, belittle.’ Self-deprecating, however, reflects the relatively recent use of deprecate for depreciate, and self-deprecating, meaning ‘belittling or disparaging oneself,’ is now somewhat more common than self-depreciating.

Just catching up. "MacFarlane Code" -- brilliant! I think a little bit of pee just came out I was laughing so hard.

December 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLime D. Zeze

Who will get the girl? Nervous Bladder or his constantly cranky companion Irratible Bowel? Stay tuned for more Jersey Shore to find out!!!

December 10, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterg33k
