I love the part where he's happy about not being invited to the party!

sounds like our work parties except they provide us with just enough money to buy a bad tasting cake

Loved Panel 2 Punchline - My Co-Workers were wondering what I was laughing at!

Love the second panel! I hate it when parties seem like every other day

Not being invited to a party you're planning is also a conflict of interest. A most excellent conflict.

At first, I read "b.y.o.b." as "Bring your own body", but then my scott-senses were tingling and I found out it meant "Bring your own beer". :D

I have had bosses who told our clerks to plan a party for a 100 people with a $20 budget. What a bunch of douchebags!

Thanks for another winner!

No don't! Being awesome all the time gets tedious. If we're never down, how will we know when we're up? You should throw in some crappy ones to keep us from taking all the awesome for granted.

hahaha! No chance for the party planner

Hey there Scott, the boss' suit on panel 4 seems incomplete? isn't it missing a lapel? great comic today :)

Our last company party was scheduled to be at a nice local hotel, on a Sunday afternoon, lunch fully catered, access to the the swimming pool and volleyball court. So you can't fault the effort, but it was still canceled for lack of interest when only two people signed up (I was not one of them). Now that's a sign of low morale. They should have saved themselves the effort and gone with the mullet headed boss version.

Brilliant just brilliant

September 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Hahaha "I'm providing YOU", I'm totally using that line from now on!

Hey I know you said Mullet boss is a composite character. I was wondering; who is the image based off of? Friend or relative of yours?

Love the smell of Wednesday Instructions. Smell like... Victory!

Congratulations, Scott. Hope you're savoring it.

For Zombie fans BYOB is "Bring Your Own Breather."

September 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

love the comic! but loud, auto-playing ads FTL

September 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterirritated

The lapel in panel 4 is there, but it's turned up to show just how cool the boss is.

Also, isn't "party" a noun?

September 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRob

W.r.t. the front page today: An auto-playing video ad with sound? Not cool.

September 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWorkaphobia

'party' is a noun AND a verb, silly.

>"What are we gonna do at the party?"
> "I dunno, party!!"

September 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbarb

I initially parsed the first line as "Web-planned parties just don't happen." And I thought, boy ain't that the truth?

September 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDave

hehe. I like my work parties though, we have beer friday every week. First job I've had that you can drink beer at work.
