BUTT JOKES. I love 'em!
Wow, never going to look at a U-haul truck the same way ever again. Thanks, Scott!
Your wife's face in panel 4 is one of sheer terror, mixed with disgust, at what is unfolding before her.
I could see where it was going but it was delivered well
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.
The horror on her face in the last panel completely makes this comic.
Big cartoon hands opening the rear door?
Somewhere, there's a line between hilarious and disturbing with this comic sitting right on top of it.
That is rather creepy now that I think about it.
this is my new fave comic of yours scott. oh and first or something.
"Guess what that stain or odor is" - Classic!
Also questionable is a cartoonist with fantasies about shoving things in the rear. :-)Btw, leather is niiiiiiiice? How did you discover that? :-)
That's sick. I like it.
Missy's face in Panel 4... Priceless.
Milady Missy! What hath thou wrought?
Love the "Jazz Hands" in panel 2!! Full of win!!
"...with this comic sitting right on top of it."
Disturbing images considering the topic of this strip.
I think that ad would really promote sales in Vancouver's West End or Toronto's Church-Wellesley neighborhoood.... especially for the bottoms.....
2011! It says 2011! The copyright date is finally 2011! OH EM GEE!
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!
We've seen Missy do disgust, shock, and terror before. But now we add "My god, what have I unleashed?"
Missy's expression in Panel 4 is the one I imagine Pandora had on opening the box.
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.
That is hilarious.
I don't read Cracked, yet I've already seen this???
Put a rising inflection on niiIIIIcce. Just about peed my pants. Thanks, Scott.
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.
U-Haul: If you got the junk, we got the trunk!
LOVE the Jazz Hands!
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.
WONDERFUL! Best thing that happened to me today.
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?
why does Rick look like he just dislocated his elbow in the last frame? thats awkward, time to redraw that "standard rick pose"
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.
the real question is--what's on the side of the cartoon van?
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?
Scott's mouth looks horribly off center in panel four. Everyone in that panel has great facial expressions.
Panel two, funniest EVAR!
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!
I think someone stole your idea for the cram it in the boot superbowl commercial this year. Eerily similar ideas.
