OMG! This is like the most practical basic instructions ever! If people start up with me I can be all like.

"Stay back I am armed with bug spray, back ye foul predator"

Scott, we are both similarly handsome, being bald with a goatee. Yet in panel two, I think you must be making fun of my Tilly hat and floral-print shirts. I demand you supply a photograph of yourself as plausible deniability that your strip hasn't actually been featuring ME (more importantly, mocking me) the whole time.

The lady in frame 3 looks like she's wearing a squid on her head. Good cartoon though.

Constructive post:
First !

The woman's hair in the third panel looks like a monkey. Love the comic! :)

...Wait, wasn't this on Cracked?

(Answer from Scott) Why yes it was! The deal is that Cracked is paying to get first run rights to SOME of my strips. The do not, and will not, run all of them. So, If you want first crack at the comics, please feel free to go check out To do so supports me. If you want to be sure you're seeing all of the comics, please feel free to read my page, which also, it goes without saying, supports me. I'm sorry if this arrangement is irritating to anyone, but it's all an attempt to make something resembling a living without charging readers for access to the comic.

Nice IT crowd reference you stuck in there. :-D

that lady's face in panel that some semblance of makeup? at first I thought it was a smudge on my computer screen, I even went so far as to grab the windex to wipe it off, and then I scrolled down.

otherwise, very funny comic. you should have added "some animals smell bad as a defense mechanism" that would have bee good for a joke or two.

I particularly enjoy the comparison between people who wear loud shirts, and poisonous creatures.

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRadien

I think the shirt in panel two is loud enough. No need for the Caps Lock yelling.

I don't understand panel 3. Are they both using the rule on each other?

I always thought he was drawing me. Now with the Hawaiian shirts and Tilley hat, I KNOW he is. Could it be that we are long lost identical triplets???

Is this deep or did I just make the mistake of waiting until Monday to view it?

August 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

I hope whatever you make resembles a relatively comfortable living. Just for the record, I think the lady's hair in panel 3 looks a little more like a monkey than a squid.

I have advised some of my friends to get rid of pestering guys by appearing desperate.
Usually they won't try it, but those who do agree - works like a charm ought to!
(it's not true that men aren't selective - they just select any female who doesn't appear defective. Being desperate, of course, makes you appear defective, because if there wasn't something wrong with you, you'd have plenty of males to select from)

Okay, Moose, seriously. Here's me, shirt and hat.
Scott, you better come up with your personal photo!

(Reply form Scott: FINE!!!! If I must prove that I look like a dork, that's what I'll do. )

This is so hard to read while drunk. You should think about your ethanol impaired readers... you are so web 0.5

August 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterImDrunk

Scott, you are hilarious. And thanks for the picture! It's quite adequate proof. :-D

I know it is late, but just for completeness.

September 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoose

Man, now I want a Tilly hat.

September 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSorvan

OMG! It's like there are THREE SCOTTS! :O

And yes, I am a creepy internet stalker. I looked at all your photos. :) You'll never be safe now. Better find a way to scare me off.
