"Opposite of responsible? Irresponsible." You may have summed up the modern world there.

Great! Love the way Scott turned it around at the end.

A safer device that allows you to avoid The Man busting you already exists. It is called a radar detector, it detects police cars so that you know when the police are near.

I like the new comic! My favourite panel is the third, "what the opposite of responsible?" "irresponsible" ! :) I was waiting for the update, I can go sleep now :D

This was a great way to finish off the day, nice one Scott.

so, the whole sentence, had it been uttered, would have been "Legally, I'm totally irresponsible".

somehow, that's awesome.

"perversion for the good of mankind" - a new motto for the strip?

I love that the eyes on the glasses look tired, but very alert, like you're hopped up on caffeine or something. That's EXACTLY how I look when I drive.

I love your comic.

@ Greg : just wanted to mention that this is illegal in some states

Now I can't help wondering, what *is* the correct word that the boss was looking for?

FYI - I have filed the patent for these glasses now. Nobody has ever gone broke underestimating the American consumer! MMMWWWAAAHHH - HAH-HAH

July 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSillyus

I think the glasses should be added to your costume collection (fezz, smoking jacket, wrestling mask, Dr Manhattan pants, etc)

I love the use of the Omnipresent Man pose in the fourth panel.

NO! Another Jason!! You must be a frighting driver if you look like that when driving.

July 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJason

@Duo But it's not illegal federally. If one seriously wanted to fight it, they could, and most likely get off. Besides, it's only illegal in about 2 states, if I remember correctly.

The boss could have said 'not liable' or 'not responsible'. There's probably some fancy Latin legal term, but I don't know it.

"A safer device that allows you to avoid The Man busting you already exists. It is called a radar detector, it detects police cars so that you know when the police are near."

So what you're saying, Gregory, is that you believe the safest way to text-and-drive is to add another device to keep your eyes off the road? (of course, many Fuzzbusters come with a beep system so you don't have to constantly look at them, but somehow I don't think added noises to your attention can help your driving either)

The third panel is a perfect example of how you've mastered the art of comedic timing in a static medium. It's one thing if a stand-up comic nails it, but it's somehow more impressive when you get the audience to READ your material with the proper punch.

Anyway, back to wiping coffee off my monitor... Ta!

"Irresponsible." -Love it!

Dave: the word you're looking for is "indemnified"

So there was a commercial about not texting and driving playing not long ago about little Ashley, age 19. She was texting her friend while driving, flipped her car and died. That one text cost her life.

The only thought I had was "LOL".

@ John I have driven cars with Fuzzbuster's before. If they have a beep system they don't negatively impact your driving at all.

The people who use radar detectors are the ones who go 70 mph on an ice-covered road and then try to blame the road signs instead of themselves
