If the Super Big Gulp is the Rolls Royce of gulps, what does that make the Double Gulp?
the monocle over the glasses is what makes this for me. still chortling over that.
The Lear jet.
Dude! De bald guy in your comic its like my twinn brother! Look at my profile on Facebook!
Look!!!!!!!! I mean it!!
Man, this literally sums up my entire life philosophy. Can I buy this print?
The monocle with the glasses is a nice touch.
Is that monocle on his glasses? That's impressive.
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.
A very funny one! Compliments!
I've been following your comic strips for a while... this one would be one of my favourites!
Double Gulp is just the stretched Hummer of Gulps
A monocle with glasses? Classy.
Who is the hottie in panel 4? Rawr!
It's two Rolls Royces. Duh.
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.
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.
The Double Gulp would be the Hummer of gulps. Bigger, but not necessarily better.
I'm picturing the Double Gulp as the Hummer of gulps.
LOL! The monocle with the glasses is great. ftw
The High-Rollers' Royce of Gulps.
@BerlapSack: The hummer of gulps.
I love this comic.
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.
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.
It's the BENTLEY of Big Gulps... Come on people!
great strip with an Especially Awesome(!!) final panel... i really enjoy your work and look forward to each new strip.. thanks :)
"Rolls-Royce? That's like. . the Cadillac of automobiles!"(from "B.A.P.S.")
I've often referred to Slurpees as "Happy Slurpees". Kinda like the poor man's Prozac. Ah, the finer things!
Your mother is the hummer of big gulps~
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...
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?
For our friends overseas:Gulp = 20-oz. (0.7 l) - 300 CaloriesThe Big Gulp = 32-ounce (1 litre) - 480 CaloriesSuper Big Gulp = 44-oz. (1.2 L) - 660 CaloriesDouble Gulp = 64-oz. (2 l) - 960 CaloriesTeam 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?
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.
@ 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?
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.
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.
