Nah, they're either assholes or shitheads.

If only the wold could be explained in only a few words, then Scott could be our spokesperson. but alas, 'tis not so, so we have to blunder our way through life for which Scott is at least a good flashlight.

Geeks are gay for sporting facts, tough guys are gay for contact sports, and suits are gay for income potential.

Combined, they're gay for the statistics on touching men for money.

This could actually work; nothing gets people to stop talking about something controversial like something more controversial to talk about.

Frame 2: Priceless.

I for one am glad for reruns. One, they are good to see again. Two, some I have missed like this one that I am glad to now have read it. Three, I know Scott is trying to keep them to a minimum.

The time has come for me to figure out how to part with cash to help out Scott. Yes, yes, I know he has stated things at various time, but it has not breached my defenses against salesman type requests/pleas/shannigans (the previous statement does not and should NOT reflect on what Scott has done or not done).

After reading this comic for over a year now (or whenever Scott was "discovered" by the other Scott), I feel that the enjoyment I have got out of these comic is well worth the price of a good dinner. Here in the midwest on my salary that would amount to $50.

So Scott, how can I get $50 bucks a year to you? (Yes, I will look back thru this site after posting to answer that question as well)

Also, I would challenge everyone, who like me, has done zero to send any business Scott's way to figure out an amount for a year that they would be willing to send/purchase.

I did not plan to make this post other than the first paragraph about the rerun. I have recently had to take 25% paycut after being let go from my previous position so I am not exactly rolling in money at the moment like most of the country. However, I have gotten, for free, much enjoyment from Scott and indirectly Missy. This is the best way I can think of to say, "Thank you". Some things in life, like the enjoyment of this comic is priceless.

Ok, just bought the 2 book deal @ $30.

Will work on the other $20 after consulting with my mistress of the checkbook. As it is I will have to face the inquisition during my check in lunch call as I am sure that within 5 minutes of spending the money she has already seen it via the online banking.

Keep up the good work, Scott.

What if you just like sex booze and rock and roll, then what are you?

I love the second square. It makes me feel identified with Meyer.

Alas, another rerun. For I fear something unatural is occurring here. For the winds of change are starting to drift in with a foul odor of unsuspecting marketing ploys. Not any blog posts will ease my fear, for they do not exist. What could this be? Is something rotting in Denmark?

This was one of my favorite strips ever (of any comic). I bought a few of the tee-shirts that said "Gay for Sports" and gave them to the guys at work who talk non-stop about baseball. They didn't find it as funny as I did.

A tough guy convention wouldn't work, because every time someone asked where it was they'd just say "who wants ta know?"

September 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJames Hutchings

OK, time to delve further into the world of Rocket Hat (or whatever the hell you call that opus)

September 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDemian

Wouldn't a violence geek convention basically be a war?

September 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNalano

I remember this one. Classic. And...yes... I remember reading this comment down here as well.

What if you just like sex booze and rock and roll, then what are you?

A groupie. Which is a subset of geek. Sort of like the people who post, uh...

There are only 3 kinds of people.
People who can get stuff done.
People who never finishes what they start.

"I feel that the enjoyment I have got out of these comic is well worth the price of a good dinner. Here in the midwest on my salary that would amount to $50. "

Cheesus Rice! You must have the biggest salary in the midwest! I spend $7 on an amazing dinner!

Oh, and perhaps there's really only one type of person. A geek. Some of these geeks are really really interested in not being really really interested in anything. Although of course, most of the Not-Being-Really-Really-Interested-In-Anything Geeks will claim they're not all that into being not that into things, we know they get a kick out of it and have secret conventions.

Panel #2 gives me the grins.

September 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAimee

It reminds me of Sam Ramer’s line in The Joy of Trek that “a geek is someone who pursues one thing to the exclusion of everything else, unless he is an athlete.”
