So... Is Rick claiming he can attract a female?

What is wrong with being covered with hair? I am covered with hair over every square inch of my body. In a survival situation my hair is far superior. It gives warmth and can be used to braid several feet of life-saving rope.

And your skin will make a fine poncho!

Nearly every line of this dialog is winning -
Why can't my conversations about trivialities be this fabulous?
I think scott and rick have superpowers of cleverness...

When threatened by a predator I can take off my shirt and the reflection blinds them, giving me time to escape.

Huzzah Rick WINS!!! About time time he got some love instead of always being on the receiving end.

Great comic as usual.

Face and palms, too?

Back to the comic - complete gem of a panel 2. Nice one, Scott.

BrianJ, your point about rope made me choke on my Dr Pepper.

My biggest problems with guys going shirtless in public is that women are not allowed the same privilege. I for one would much rather see women walking around shirtless than men.

A hairy man is usually a sexy man, I think, Sean Connery being the gold standard. :) And they're so nice to snuggle!

I don't get the recent decision by "trend makers" to label men's body hair as gross, but facial hair as essential. As dumb as expecting a woman to be rail-thin with enormous breasts. I expect silicone chest covers to hide hairy men's shame are being developed as we speak.

I had a bio professor who said that it was estimated that something like 30% of humans had what would technically be a "super power." I admit, though, that I never bothered asking where he got this information.

@robin: I for one would not wear anything to cover my manly chest hair.
(The mental image of the "garment" you mentioned almost killed me. (with laughter))

What a ridiculous society we live in. One hundred years ago, men were not thought to be Men until they were covered with hair.

It's as if someone Wants us to be divided and hateful, rather than United and Loving.

I love you. All of you. O

Maybe the best second panel ever! This is clearly a 95th percentile BI. Outstanding.

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

I think Scott has misunderstood part of the meaning of "Superpower." In particular, the "Super" part.

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRich

@sliz: maybe chest-to-chin transplants, then? : )

October 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterrobin

Or I could put my mustache on my chest. :P
(If I had one)

@Hari, I'm for women walking around topless. However, in both genders, Excessive torso hair or fat are dealbreakers.

October 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDrowlord

oh boy! star wars is a documentary. just GREAT.

October 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos Castillo

Drowlord: You feel that everything you don't find pretty should be banned from sight?

I really want to see Rick with a Fu-Manchu stash. Panels 2&3 give me a vague hint of this. This would be AWESOME!

My power is the ability to reach any itch on my back.
