I think the phoenix describes him better.

"When else am I gonna kick him?'...Great!

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterentr0py

2010? I thought we had gotten over this, Scott.

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbuckybone

"And you don't understand how human hearing works" --> Awesome punchline!

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJason

Haha :)

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

LOL! Funny!

January 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKrisL

The hearing range jokes are quite funny. They are a new spice that works well with your comic-gourmet.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterContrajoe

Sea Monkeys!

This doesn't just describe man-friendships! This describes any friendships I have with my 'emo' friends :D (and i'm a girl!) Brilliant post today, keep it up!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterannonymousesqueak

Oh this is like a snapshot into my man-friendship with a certain grimmonkey.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMortengreen

Is it opossum or possum or... Dangit, Mister Meyer, you've gone and altered my perceptions again. I am confused.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDrake

you've taken "supportive" to a whole new level.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGreg

To think I've been doing it wrong all this time. Thank you basic instructions, I have been learnt!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJawfin

Love the comic!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterIdiotbasher

Great! New feature - Out of panel comments!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermohrorless

Absolute classic from start to finish. Kudos!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTitanicus

I love the word bubbles from the characters off scene in panels two and four... cracked me up!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCar1EF

honestly one of you best one so far. I actually laughed out loud after the second panel.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGuillaume

Brilliant. Thanks for the pointers, Scott.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCletus

FIRST!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterfirst

Good work as usual. Love panel 3, hehe, possum.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHero Prinny, Dood.

Full of WIN!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLeeTron

Pure win for sure! I love this one!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDavid N

Panel 2 and 3 shine out amongst the gems in this strip! I loved it.

*now enter the over analyzing, ignoring sterotype zone that is not be regarded as negative towards the comic*
Possums are not that helpless or timid. A few dared to cross into our yard and our warrior princess of a samoyden/husky mix made them pay with their lives. The teeth on those things are not to be taken lightly.

3rd and 4th panel... "hearing range"

Pure Gold! Made me laught out loud!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmorim

Oh man! This is gold! I wish we could meet the real Rick. He must be some kind of guy to tolerate all the encouragement you give.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

The guy's always down! When else am I gonna kick him?

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRosie

Neat innovation with the dialogue balloon pointing out of the frame. It sets up an odd tension, because the previous panel is in the space that is apparently being pointed to. So suddenly each panel has its own layer. But then the very last dialogue balloon goes outside its panel, not staying in its layer. A topologically challenging cartoon.

I have a test today in a class about Friendship. These were just the insights I needed to push my grade to the next level!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike

The blank stare in the last panel is amazing. 'I dont want to be a Brine Shrimp :('

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKyle Jinks

"Man-Friendship"?

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNick

The off-camera character, I like it.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commentervtashore

I like how your instructions are actually good advice.
Keep 'em rollin'!!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterelfakyn

And back to 2010 again. It's like Scott has his own personal time machine.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRob

This is officially one of my all-time favorites, especially the off screen hearing comments.
I believe the biblical name for this was "Job's comforters".

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdantheserene

1st!!!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterholkn

Love panel 3.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjcp

One of the best yet. This one is going up on the wall.

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOldbear

Panel number two – voice bubble from another panel. INGENIOUS!

January 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThe_Dingus

I thought I liked the opossum analogy best until I read the brine shrimp one, and now I'm torn.

Loved it, as always.
