Panels 2 & 3 - brilliant!
Unfortunately i saw that punchline (or a similar one) coming in panel 2 after he mentioned breaking glass. But you made up for that predictability in panel 4.
"performing Mundane duties until they run aground or rust away to nothing." I love that analogy.
Is this the first time that someone other then Scott was following the advice of the panels?
So bossman is a hillbilly, is that what you are saying? Or is his mother-in-law a hillbilly? so confused. I love this strip. why aren't you syndicated?
@isiah No, there have definitely been others. Just off the top of my head, there was something along the lines of "Dealing with an Insane Spouse", which was about Missy dealing with Scott having a dream that she was mean to him.
isiah, I'm pretty sure it's not. I think the boss's been the one to follow the narrative a few times now.
Troubles at home, Scott?
The roles seem reversed. In panels 2-4 Mullet Boss reads like Scott and Scott reads like Mullet Boss.
can't wait to get married!
it really is great how you actually put in good advice in every comic, but still manage to keep it hilarious.
This seems to be the first time, in panel 3, at least, where the boss actually makes some sense.
Quadruple Score! Every panel of this one had a funny punch line!
The roles have been reversed before. Take a look at "How to Explain Something to Someone Who Doesn't Get it".
a true LOL on this one, or at least a CQTM (chuckle quietly to myself).
I liked the first pane. I'm in a lot of conversations like that.
Another great cartoon, especially panel 2 with the broken glass references.
I love your comic. It's original in a way that most comics try to be. I just hate that you get burned on so much in your comments. Keep up the good work and don't let the internet lackeys get to you.
Good stuff. However this is the first one that I am truly hesitant to forward to my wife. Others I have forwarded knowing she would read it and look at me knowingly, on this one I will face the inquisition board.
Slow start, big finish! Thanks
I often run into the situation in the first panel, and I never have a response to the question "why not just say that?"
But now I do!
Is this the closest bossman has come to winning an argument?
Well, technically it wasn't an argument, but it did involve yelling.
I know I shouldn't, but every time I see the guy with the mullet, I think it's Ray Thomas from the Moody Blues.
...Doesn't the boss keep kosher?
