LOVE the crazy-eyes.

I'm so very creeped out by panel 3.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Bullet points with pointing finger! Classic!

Holy carp that's hilarious!! The third panel may be the most hilarious thing I've ever seen...seriously, I would wear that on a shirt.

PS: Yes, I meant carp.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTurtleman

hahah 3rd slide.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermoh

Oh my gosh! The pelt for a poncho face! And the stupid chair pumped up to its highest. The main thing is, my kids and I are laughing.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

Creeeepy face in the third panel

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCherry cola

Upon the second read it is much funnier!

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMe

That is the least intimidating chair that I've ever seen.

New signature:

NEG POTENTIAL?
MAXIMIZED!

Panel 3: What has been seen cannot be unseen!

It took me a minute to stop laughing and be able to actually read the words in panel 3.

Love the face in the third pic. XD
It's a little freaky...

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTSG

Do you have any fan girls yet? If not, may I volunteer to be the first? I'm thinking tee shirts, a little tasteful stalking here and there, maybe a website later on...

"Veeeery sleeeepy!"

This zombie face is so hilarious.
I guess, when I'm done laughing I'm gonna fall asleep out of exhaustion ...

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRhythmic

Sleeeeepy. Veeeeeeeeeery Sleeeeeepy. That face would keep me awake or haunt my nightmares though.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

PAnel 3: Your skin will make a fine poncho! The tall chair in panel 4 is genius!

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLeeTron

The 'your hide will make a fine poncho' face! Yaaaay! :D

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatteroast

Fantastic! I'm at work right now 'maximising my negative potential'.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBrendan

I find the tall chair and the crazy eyes to be my favorite parts.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMary

That third panel is the scariest and funniest thing I've seen for a long while.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPyra

I'm the first one to post? awesome!

I still think its almost funny how real life situations can apply to this comic perfectly. I have, I admit, done a few things at work where in order to hide the work I didn't do, I did more work to cover it up than would have been required to the work in the first place.

I'm also guilty of making PowerPoints with twelve slides of nonsensical fluff and three slides or less of actual usable material.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterXzex

3rd panel is priceless. Cracked me up so bad.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDeeGee

Efficiencies?
Streamlined!

I will use this in my next worthless status meeting. I've already got the crazy, "I will eat your liver with fava beans" grin from the 3rd panel down.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChuck

Been reading your comic for a long time, and I'm very glad you decided to reuse the "Your hide will make a fine poncho" face. Makes me crack up every time I see it. Keep up the good work!

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarc

Is that the "your hide will make a fine poncho" face in the third panel?

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterichindar

Soften him up with doughnuts.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPapa Jay

That is a fantastic chair, I want one.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDKaine

You've earned our appreciation by streamling the jokes and maximizing the negative spelling, and making us LOL, veeeeery ROTFLMAO.

You've put the same amount of attention into the artwork, with roughly the same result.

Keep up the gr8 work!

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSolak

Love Scott's eyes in #3. And excellent punchline in #4.

That said, streamlined efficiencies should be part of every sales powerpoint presentation.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterlerkistan

that's the "your hide will make a fine poncho"face from how to smile you cant fool me

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterme

This is a genuine LOL. Third panel especially.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

I have been lurking here for a while, and I wanted to post to say I always enjoy your comics. Thank you for making my weekdays a bit more hilarious :)

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdarkremixx

There are no words to describe the creepiness of panel three.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertheyarnstashattacked

So... Tired...

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLoopylung

I love the tall chair, very intimidating, especially when your legs swing freely, like a child, Lol, awesome strip especially the last frame.

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMiron

i saw one of the other comments mention the need for the panel three face being on a shirt, and i second it. it would just be awesome

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKyle_Q

AHH Yes! The Fake Smile BI was the first one I ever read!

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCalvin

To everyone who says panel 3 should be a shirt... it is, and has been for quite a while since the first time Scott published that picture. Check the store link at the top of the page and pick one up!

January 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGarrett

I used to use that same method (see panel 3) to teach a lab back in college. My calm slow voice early on a Tuesday morning would put about a third of them out!

January 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

These are unbelievable. I hope you are making tons of money off this.

Are you getting a TV show? This is better than "Sh*t my Dad Says", by light years.

January 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMoon

I just realized that the "Your hide will make a fine poncho" face is the same that the AZ shooter has in his mugshot. Honestly I think that actually improves the creepiness.
