"...scalding hot beneath a fragile cross." It's funny because its true. I've been really enjoying your work recently, It seems to me you have been really finding your voice.

Last panel was BRILLIANT! Another classic. You should tell Randall Munroe how to write comics.

Hasn't this been posted before? It seems eerily familiar...

I just ordered both of your books along with the Far Side Collection this week. I must say, I read the Basic Instructions books first and enjoyed every minute!

what's a TV dinner?

July 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAna

"Would it help if I blew on you.?"
Still chuckling.

what you really nail here is how that after completely insulting men for 3 panes (with Missy joining in), you can make one quick comparison about the woman and the joke's over for her, you've gone too far. Or, as you said "hidden beneath a fragile crust". Both utterly true and immediately demonstrated.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGreg

So. Entirely. True. Hate to admit it, but it's true.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMary

Hey, this is a rerun! at least mark it like that you cheater hahahah

Ana: A TV dinner is pre-prepared food that is heated in the microwave (or oven), that people (used to?) eat in front of the TV. I guess it is just convenient. But oh so unhealthy.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSabine

Absolutely hilarious!

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKain

You made my Monday happy.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternone

Wow, just came back to BI after some months away and am thrilled with how consistently good it's become. Excellent!

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJP

That's what the crust is for, to make certain nothing will cool it down - until you dig in and get burned. One of your best, IMHO.

Ana -- a TV dinner is one of those frozen dinners that you can get in the supermarket. Crappy food that comes frozen and you reheat in the microwave and has all the different food in separate compartments in the paper tray they come in.

Being blown always helps me!

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShipprah

Now THAT made me laugh out loud.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteveM

*shudder* The timing of this one is a bit scary. Emotions are running a bit more ... raw ... in our household. Involuntarily unemployed for the past 4 weeks. Nuff said.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAC

You manage to get a lot of funny jokes into a single installment. I wouldn't have thought stand up comedy could translate into the cartoon format so effectively.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDoug

Scott, I may disagree with you on red delicious apples, but you assess microwave apple cobbler quite agreeably.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

What a great line and so true - " the apple cobbler of remorse".. This was one of your best cartoons.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDebbie

Haha! Ahh, as usual the comedic highlight of my week.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

What's a tv dinner? Only the best idea ever! They take unhealthy food, fill it with more preservatives than nutrients, then deep freeze the whole we can reheat it in our microwaves and eat like coronary kings for two bucks!

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJesse

@Ana, a TV dinner is a really disgusting thing that tastes like cardboard and has all of the nutritional capabilities of cardboard as well. It's sometimes called a microwave dinner, or a tinfoil dinner, but it just equates to disgusting crap at the end of the day.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered Commentertheyarnstashattacked

Is that why the biggest TV dinner is called the Hungry Man?

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBonzoGal

It was previewed on Cracked, and the crack trolls didn't like it so much i still do

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterwhomp

"the apple cobbler of remorse" - brilliant!

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKris L

I misread that second to last line in the dirtiest way possible and was momentarily surprised.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTom

I'm still trying to figure out which food is righteous indignation.

July 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoanie

This comic, (in general, not this one specifically) is like a good friend I'm always happy to see.
This particualr comic is great too.

July 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrhesusmonkey

How very true lol...unfortunately, some men never even take the plastic wrap off of the dinner, or even poke the first hole in it.

July 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterA

"Would it help if I blew on you?"
"Absolutely not."

I laughed out loud.

July 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSheherazahde

It just doesn't get any better than this.. so smart, so funny, so awesome!! :)

July 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercheryl

Haha, that reaction isn't particular to the ladies. The same thing happens (you should try it) if you are with a bunch of your friends. You yourself can go on at length about what a shithead you are, etc etc, but start saying what shitheads your friends are and you will soon find yourself alone at the bar.

July 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVic

This comic reminds me of the men and boxes video clip.

July 14, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterti702

I snorted. Awesome.

July 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjulianna01

@ Joanie; Self rightious indignation would be any meal served by the gaunt vegans.

July 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjulianna01

Yes, this one was brilliant. My wife enjoyed it, too.
