BUTT JOKES. I love 'em!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJ

Wow, never going to look at a U-haul truck the same way ever again. Thanks, Scott!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMidare

Haha!

Your wife's face in panel 4 is one of sheer terror, mixed with disgust, at what is unfolding before her.

Excellence!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteraehric

I could see where it was going but it was delivered well

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFrostymkii

This has to be the best one EVER!

I'm glad I wasn't drinking my soda when I read it or I'd have ruined my laptop.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSerne

The horror on her face in the last panel completely makes this comic.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

Big cartoon hands opening the rear door?

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaul_Bags

Somewhere, there's a line between hilarious and disturbing with this comic sitting right on top of it.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

That is rather creepy now that I think about it.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterpsycosulu

this is my new fave comic of yours scott. oh and first or something.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMors

"Guess what that stain or odor is" - Classic!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermohrorless

Also questionable is a cartoonist with fantasies about shoving things in the rear. :-)
Btw, leather is niiiiiiiice? How did you discover that? :-)

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWim ten Brink

That's sick. I like it.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoshwa

Missy's face in Panel 4... Priceless.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnother Rob

Milady Missy! What hath thou wrought?

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRaj Chaudhuri

Love the "Jazz Hands" in panel 2!! Full of win!!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAngela

"...with this comic sitting right on top of it."

Disturbing images considering the topic of this strip.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAC

I think that ad would really promote sales in Vancouver's West End or Toronto's Church-Wellesley neighborhoood.... especially for the bottoms.....

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSolak

2011! It says 2011! The copyright date is finally 2011! OH EM GEE!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRosie

I love how Missy's horrified expression is often seen in panel 4 when you and Rick get together. No wonder she's the only one qualified to be The Judger!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

We've seen Missy do disgust, shock, and terror before. But now we add "My god, what have I unleashed?"

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermike

Missy's expression in Panel 4 is the one I imagine Pandora had on opening the box.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTom

I came in from the RSS feed because this one was so funny. Then I saw Paul_Bags goatse reference and I feel like my mind has been sexually assaulted.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermotionview

That is hilarious.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlex

I don't read Cracked, yet I've already seen this???

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

Put a rising inflection on niiIIIIcce. Just about peed my pants. Thanks, Scott.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike

If this is 2011-01-23-ad.gif what was 2011-02-01-ad.gif?
Someone is messing with my head, particularly since that post had the exact same comments as this one does! I just hope I didn't comment back then, the time dilemma would probably dissolve me. Also, that was future posted, for February, and yet I saw it in the past ... I'm just too afraid to look at the copyright year.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJawfin

U-Haul: If you got the junk, we got the trunk!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterByron Black

LOVE the Jazz Hands!

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlan

For those of us who DON'T follow BI on Cracked and KNOW that this is somehow a rerun, well, it IS. It's the first strip Scott posted in 2011 that had the correct copyright date, and then shortly after posting it, he replaced it with something from 2010 (still a new strip, but not originally posted until this year). A few of us even actually commented on THIS strip the first time around, and then when it was replaced the comments were like, "wait, what happened to the moving van one?"

so you're NOT crazy... Scott just pulled a fast one on a handful of his die-harders.

January 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

WONDERFUL! Best thing that happened to me today.

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergreeble

Nice topic. But if you wanted to focus solely on questionable advertising, I think you'd have enough fodder for years. I often shake my head at some commercials and wonder who green-lit that idea? And does he still work there?

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMikeN

why does Rick look like he just dislocated his elbow in the last frame? thats awkward, time to redraw that "standard rick pose"

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommentertheDuder

I moved a few days ago. my u-haul had what looked like a giant sea serpent on the side. make sense of that one.

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterterry

the real question is--what's on the side of the cartoon van?

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTrev

Sick! But very funny.

The commercials that get to me are the ones where the things that they want you to eat (smiling goldfish, m&ms) act alive and sentient. Who wants to eat something like that?

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKrisL

Scott's mouth looks horribly off center in panel four. Everyone in that panel has great facial expressions.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterContrajoe

Panel two, funniest EVAR!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFlimFlam

I move around a lot, and I have to say, I'm never going to see UHauls the same way. Ever again.

Loved it! I laughed heartily!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersweetsapphire

I think someone stole your idea for the cram it in the boot superbowl commercial this year. Eerily similar ideas.
