If the Super Big Gulp is the Rolls Royce of gulps, what does that make the Double Gulp?

May 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBerlapSack

May 26, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdave

Man, this literally sums up my entire life philosophy. Can I buy this print?

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJake Spurlock

The monocle with the glasses is a nice touch.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHoneywell

Is that monocle on his glasses? That's impressive.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKuzma

D'oh! I'm uable to se files hosted on squarespacestorage from my work. Appearantly that's some sort of "Web Hosting" and thus bad for my productivity.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGeir Anders

A very funny one! Compliments!

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGianluca

I've been following your comic strips for a while... this one would be one of my favourites!

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAirness

Double Gulp is just the stretched Hummer of Gulps

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKibi

A monocle with glasses? Classy.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Who is the hottie in panel 4? Rawr!

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersimon

It's two Rolls Royces. Duh.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLockeZ

dear lord, I am out of the loop. The last time I went to 7-11 all they had was super-gulp and regular gulp.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterisiah

Any time I go to job interview, I picture my competition/nemesis as looking just like the Monopoly guy; top hat & all. I also imagine that he begins every response with "hellooooooooo" and lots of fancy hat/monocle action.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBill

The Double Gulp would be the Hummer of gulps. Bigger, but not necessarily better.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTrace Belcher

I'm picturing the Double Gulp as the Hummer of gulps.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAtheismo

LOL! The monocle with the glasses is great. ftw

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDJKJR

The High-Rollers' Royce of Gulps.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBenj

@BerlapSack: The hummer of gulps.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterS. Kyle Davis

I love this comic.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel

I work with this guy - although he does not wear glasses & in place of a high pitched shriek it's his laugh - if you heard him laugh you would think "13YO girl". He did not find this comic amusing in the least! Everyone else in the office wants to print it out & replace his cube name with it.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSillyus

I have the same problem.
If you can see the picture from work just right click the broken image and get the properties.
Then highlight and copy the entire address...this one is:

paste it into your browser and change it like so:

if it wouldn't put me into a diabetic coma, i would like to try a Dew w/splash of grape Slurpee.

but it would.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterUncle Staple

It's the BENTLEY of Big Gulps... Come on people!

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHalomomma

"Rolls-Royce? That's like. . the Cadillac of automobiles!"
(from "B.A.P.S.")

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRobert

Quite So!

I've often referred to Slurpees as "Happy Slurpees". Kinda like the poor man's Prozac. Ah, the finer things!

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGreg

@simon

That's Scott.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaminar

Your mother is the hummer of big gulps~

baZing.

May 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGeekoid

I'm feeling left out... I live in Australia, and all we have at the 7-11 is slurpees. (And no, not grape flavoured!) XD

I feel like this "Big Glup" of yours must be one heck of a drink...

May 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterQueenofmuffins

Burlap.

The Double Gulp is the "Cadillac" of gulps. The Mullet Haired Boss probably drinks that.

You make fun of his Super Big Gulp, but sitting on my desk right now is a DOUBLE Gulp. I'm guessing it's the Alfa Romeo of drinks or something. Now, where's my double monocle?

May 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSQLGuru

For our friends overseas:
Gulp = 20-oz. (0.7 l) - 300 Calories
The Big Gulp = 32-ounce (1 litre) - 480 Calories
Super Big Gulp = 44-oz. (1.2 L) - 660 Calories
Double Gulp = 64-oz. (2 l) - 960 Calories
Team Gulp = 128-oz. (3.8l) - 1920 Calories (about the total daily calories needed for an adult male)

Is it any wonder American's seem to be getting fatter & have more diabetes?

May 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSillyus

@Queenofmuffins:

A Big Gulp is about a liter-sized cup of soda. A Super Big Gulp is about 1.3 liters. It's nothing particularly special, except to Rich Uncle Pennybags up there.

May 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJessie

@ Queenofmuffins - I'm in Australia too (west coast), and I can't say I've ever even heard of a "7-11". I'm presuming it's some kind of fast-food place?

May 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterQuinn

@ Quinn

7-11 is a convenience store. My father tells me that they were called 7-11 because they were the first convenience store to be open for such long hours--from 7 am to 11 pm. Of course, now they open 24/7, but the name stuck.

May 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChare

God, I'm still giggling over this. My wife would be giving me funny looks if she still expected any level of sanity or maturity out of me.
