Just a quick reminder that starting the 20th, Im going to start posting three comics a week!
every time there is a reference to the Cadillac of forms I think back to the time in workstudy where I had to design a requisition form for a room.
It was tiny, complex, loaded with vague threats of what happens if you fill it out wrong, none of the spaces to write were big enough, there was a part about how you are not allowed to write on in the back or attach another sheet.
Yeah I was in a bad mood that year.
Sweet! I'm looking forward to an extra BI each week :)
Sweeet... 3 times per week.... that's exciting.
Buy Scott's books. It worth the experience to read them in print*.
*I do not know Scott, I do not get anything out of this other than Scott able to continue to do this for a living. Isn't that enough?
As in all organizations, shanking flows downhill!
Three a week?! No way!! That's the best news I've had all week!
Three a week?! Ah! I don't know how I'm going to keep track.
Hello? Hello? Anyone out there?
Did everyone escape but me?
Nice twist. This is one of my all-time favorites, for sure. I remember when Scott Adams was trying to convince you to go to a 3-panel format in the hopes that you'd be more attractive to syndicates. You made a valiant effort, but I definitely like it this way better.
"It's not meant as a compliment. The best compliments seldom are." Points for both grammar and wisdom.
On a tangent, I think that I'd watch the TV show based on this comic, but would it be a comedy or a drama?
Hey, are you aware that someone tried to put a Trojan Horse on your page? My anti-virus just alerted me.
Ah, the dream of corporate drones (like myself) everywhere: that our super-awesome corporate overlords will go to prison. And we will not get shanked.
The threat of a "shanking" sounds like a great managment tool.
now that i know scot and mullet boss are the same actor in different clothing, i was amazed at what a little 'just for men' and a shave can do for a guy. ill have to keep that in mind if im ever on the run
"It's not meant as a compliment. The best compliments seldom are."
This is a genius line and I must find a way to use it at work.
The nice thing about having the comics in a book format is that they're easier to carry and you don't havge to worry as much about spilling something on them :)
So excited for another step of success for you, Scott! You deserve it! Also looking forward to an extra BI a week. Congratulations!
Yeah, well hurry up about it; I've finished all your archive and I'm still hungry!
Am I the only one who felt the jokes this time were too subtle to get?
@soul of wit
what a great idea! I think Scott should write a sitcom screenplay. on the other hand, so far he's been able to come up with cca 8 jokes a week (4 in one strip), so I guess he'd run out of funny pretty soon. or would he?
This reminds me, I need to design a new form at work since no one can fill out the current one correctly. Life imitates art! Great comic!
Scott, we need to talk about your TPS reports ...
