Panel 3 made me laugh. A lot.
"You see those a lot, don't you?" LOL! Brilliant as always.
This. Was. WIN!I think Ima use the face one.
I'm going to use Panel 3 at work tomorrow when somebody invariably asks me "if I've got a case of the Mondays".
Is... is something bothering you?
But, on to the things that a million other reader's won't say to this comic...I have to say, Jenkins is one of my favorite supporting characters for this comic. He is unabashedly unclassy, and I like that.It seems to me that you've been using him more lately. I approve. and now I have other things to do. It doesn't matter what. The details, as they say...
Panels three and four are filled with so much win. I can also relate with this one. I have one of those "angry" faces that just confuse people. I'm actually very happy.
Hilarious as always. Longtime reader, your comics always make my day :)
Nooooooooooooooo! Back to the dreaded 2010 copyright.I do like panel 3 a lot though
>GAK!< Five minutes without oxygen.Face on the side of your head! What a marvelously devious mind you have Mr. Meyer!
Christ, I just about lost it. This one was absolutely fantastic!
Great! Especially the comment on insulting him! LOL
As always, too true and too often...
and so I spend 3 minutes of my life trying to look to the left and still see the front of my computer screen. Gee thankx
Got a good way to answer the "how are you doing?" or "what is up?"
i've lived that more than once and whether i was working as a prep cook, a housekeeper, or a teacher there has always been someone at the job who was that oblivious. another good strip.
This says 2010, it's 2011 now :P get wit da program :P
When I'm feeling great people sometimes tell me i look tired. Very irritating!
I must agree with everyone else. This one's fantastic. Panel 3 was just too funny!
Is it just me, or does Jenkins look a lot like supervillain MacraMayhem? Has anyone ever seen them together in the same room?
genius, 4 great jokes in 4 panels. 90% of the talentless hacks polluting the comic pages of the daily papers should quit in shame, they are unworthy to clean your nibs
WHY WHY WHY does your website make the ESCape key the trigger to redirect to a login page!? What's wrong with a "Login" button in the top right corner like everyone else? I read long webpages (as yours often is, with all the comments on the amazing cartoons,) by middle-clicking to autoscroll, and setting a slow scrolldown, and when I want to pause, I cancel scrolling by pressing escape. This works *EVERYWHERE* else, why does your site have to break it? Argh! Please make it stop doing that!
oh wow, jenkins can be thoughtful. though maybe he is just catching up with panel 3 by the time panel 4 rolls around. its definitely an interesting pose for his character though. (i wonder if he is far or near sighted. the glasses are on when they meet, but off to investigate the smile.)
There's a picture of my wife and me that was taken in 1998 at a party. I have a seriously pissed off expression on my face. For some reason it's my wife's favorite pic of us, and visitors inevitably ask, 'What was his problem?'
I've given up trying to explain that it's the camera angle and the flash glare blinding me and making it look like I'm furious. Now I tell people I had just bitten the inside of my lip right before the button was pressed.
