He everybody, Infini-Tees are back!
Can we get a full-size version of the game board?
Two guys and one girl. What ARE you trying to teach? And when is this teaching aid going to be available in your store?
This may be the greatest educational tool ever, except for the question of what "victory" would mean in this context. You win by... giving everyone else your diseases? Making sure every body part has one virus to the exclusion of all others? That is an... interesting message to promote, to say the least. Back to the ol' infectious diseases drawing board.
OK, I want that game NOW! Or at least a bigger pic that I can use for my desktop...
You are a pervert and a genius! Kinda reminds me of Dr. Strangelove:
General we cannot let the Russians win the deep mineshaft race!
I couldn't stop laughing at the last panel. Hand to butt attacks -snort-
Oh my God - this is the most hilarious strip I've seen (read) in months. Well done. My imagination runs wild!!
And if that doesn't work, you can send the game board into outer space.
Scott, let me be frank: You are so consistently, inventively hilarious that it scares me.
Great game! LOL!
Dammit, now I'm an accomplice.
aaaauuuuugghhh!!! Horrible!! Very funny... but horrible!
I'm not here to judge, I'm here to laugh
I'm not here to judge, just to laugh.
"I am not here to judge, just to teach." is my new maxim.
Big thanks for starting my tax day with a laugh!
"Some of those lines are surprising." New internet meme in the works? I think so.
OMG! ROFL! I SOOOO should not read this at work! It is hard to breathe when holding in the laughter!!
"I've noticed that some of the lines are...surprising."
What a great phrase and such a polite wife he has.
seriously, the last panel made me laugh out loud.
Incorporating the Pioneer Nudies into a comic strip, +10.
Full size version of the board please! :D
Definitely one of the funniest ones I've seen yet. I've got to echo what's been said before - "Two guys and one girl. What ARE you trying to teach?" Haha.
That sounds like an awesome game. A slightly more intimate version of Pandemic?
The Stick O' Butter punch line of the last cartoon was your best punchline ever. Today has the funniest first panel I have come across in a cartoon. I was actually a bit afraid to read the rest of the strip and had to take a break to stop laughing.
hmmm... do i correctly notice that no vector lines go anywhere near the feet? sounds pretty judgemental to me, pal! we definitely need the full-sized board.
I am a bit confused and surprised by some of the transmission line also. And I really don't want any explanation either. So please don't try judge me and please don't be trying to teach me that kind of stuff also. But I am laughing right now.
This is the hardest I have laughed at a comic in a long time. Very funny! The third panel is the best followed closely by the fourth. I also want to see the game board.
When I stop laughing, I'll come up with a better comment
I laughed the most at the third panel. ...just here to teach. that is great.
I think I've seen this game played on the internet
OMG! how can you make this strip possible? you're a wicked-wicked-wickedly hilarious man 8)~~~i notice that some of the comments wonder why there are 2 guys and a girl.well, personally i think that's because sexually transmitted diseases may be transmitted between a gal and a guy, or between guys only. i really wonder if women can transmit STD to each other. am i right, Scott? then it totally makes sense with that design of the board of yours.
I want to buy a print of this!
I don't want to see a larger version of the game board; I think it's funnier to leave some of the more "surprising" lines to our imaginations.
Somebody already beat me to it, but I liked the use of the Pioneer people, too. And yeah, some things are better left to our imaginations... (shudder)
@ kalousx: I think, if a hand-butt attack is possible, then it's definitely possible for two women to transmit diseases to each other. ;) There would probably be fewer lines between the two women than between the two men or between the women and the men, but there should still be *some*.
Leonardo da Vinci would be so proud to see that his work is still being used for Good.
I'm so regretting clicking on that t-shirt link. Bah.
hahaha... best strip!
