How chivalrous of you to take on the wretch.

pretty funny....good dry humor.

The desperate horny men of the joke world. Fantastic. You've done it again.

August 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel

The jokes keep getting funnier and funnier from panel to panel. That last one was a doozy! LOL

Fantastic! You sir, have just received one new rabid fan!

I'm sorry, but the fact that I look exactly like Jenkins and am mortally terrified of ever seeming to act like that prevents me from enjoying this particular lesson very much.

Frame 4 was golden.

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaminar

Yeah, this is an awesome strip. Or maybe I'm in an unusually good mood, and it's just of your normal caliber. I really look forward to reading this comic twice a week.

I wish I had a miss understanding me sometimes ! I'll always be a horny desperate man. Un desparado de hornito !

If that's what puns are, I don't even want to know what non-sequiturs really mean.

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJeremyJB

Non-sequiturs are the homeless veterans of the world: highly relevant at some point, but make you feel awkward when you encounter one without proper change.

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNick

Panel two really made me laugh hard.

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

So if puns are the desperate horny men of the joke world, the double entendre would be Jenkins in a trench coat, yes?

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOBH

non-sequitors are like the masturbaters of the joke world i think. i would like to print it out and take it to work but i don't want to get into trouble. it describes too many people.

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterdeimos

It's the "subtly" part that's the problem.

—Long-time lurker, first-time poster. Love the strip!

Non-sequiturs are the joke men of the desperate horny world.

The wiggly finger quotes are icing on this hilarious cake.

August 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissa

Every day papers pay good money to publish crap that does not generate half as many laughs a week as any one of those 4 panels do & you churn out quality like this twice a week. There is no justice in this world, if there were names like Jack Berrill, Dik Browne, Cathy Guisewite, Bill Hinds, Bil Keane and Fred Lasswell would be unknown & Scot Myer would be mentioned with Breathed, Trudeau and Kelly. People would quote Kliban: "Out of the way! A cartoonist is coming!"

August 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSillyus

EW- thinking of Kliban made me want to check his work again & I realized I misquoted him :Out of the way swine! A cartoonist is coming!" Can you fix that in my post?

August 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSillyus

Never get tired of your strip. Very good, keep up the work, it always puts a smile on my face.

August 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlan

She's pretty "attractive" and I would totally "go out" with her.

That last line in Panel 4 is pure gold, I love it.

August 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWoogles

Hey Scott just here to say that I love your strip more than bacon and dinosaurs. Also to tell you that the commenter's on Craked who say negative things about your site are wrong. It seemed like you needed a pick me up considering how moody artists can be.

August 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJSB

Perfectly understandable of Jenkins, scarf girl is hot.

August 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLondon

zOMG LOL. That's just gold, a chuckle at 3 panels and a laugh at the last. Thanks :)

August 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterYeebok

One of my favorites in a long time. Last punch line killed it.

August 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKau the Lion

This strip makes me angry.

*clicks on banner ad, realizes you need a court order to take the anger management class. Punches computer.*

I'm sorry, baby, I didn't mean it. I love you.

August 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGonzo

Haha! I laughed at the second and third panel. Gentleman... haha.

August 16, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermrdeus

Hahaha, sooo clever as always!

August 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEmilie

The desperate horny men of the joke world. But I like puns. I guess it's like you said in an earlier strip: any analogy breaks down if you push it too far.

January 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThalia

Nobody likes analogies either.

June 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRizz Rustbolt

I got the speech bubbles mixed up in the first panel. Eh, its better this way.
