Amazing as always!
You, Sir, are abundant in good form and fine manner. I applaud you.
Serving Scott bland food then beating him up after he doesn't appreciate it - everybody wins!
This is a rerun? I don't remember it...
I say, this has been a mightily entertaining comical strip. You have my salutations.
Pleading face in panel 3 is excellent.
Bravo Sir. In times like these we still need to remember our manners and the importance of a good soufflé.
Society is only three bad soufflés away from anarchy.
In years to come, when you recount your moral victory to the callow youth of the day, I think you should wear your smoking jacket and cravat. This tale deserves it.
Also, have you thought about investing in a smoking cap to go with the jacket. My Nana's "boyfriend" had one. Crimson velvet, with heavy gold embroidery around the edge, and topped with a magnificent tassel. It was superb! It could have been crafted for you Scott . . .
One cannot help but notice that the gentleman with you has chosen the classic combat stance of "Please give me a wedgie".
Mister Meyer, good sir, I fear you have misplayed your hand in this game.
The proper maneuver when finding oneself in the position of Under-Arm-Headlockee is to reach over and unzip the pants of your designated Under-Arm-Headlocker. This shall inevitably result in one of two outcomes: A. Your designated Under-Arm-Headlocker will immediately realease you under terms of "OH HOLY SHI- WHAT THE FU-"B. Failing release, you may then reach into said unzipped pants and deploy the Crushing Eagle Claw Of Iron technique, at which point the conversation shall be ended.
Simply an amazing comic, though I do wonder if TexasNinjaBuzzard's plan B would fall under the category 'Crimes against humanity'.....
As the holiday season heats up, I trust your forthcoming Basic Instructions on How to Love your Relatives will cool things down a bit north of 60. (Ummm, unless they read this post.) Inexplicably, exhibiting good form in the manner illustrated above did not enable my brother-in-law to embrace my point of view.
Eagerly awaiting your sage advice or attendance and personal instruction at our family gathering -- NEED TO CHILL IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH
PS Your strip rocks my canoe eh.
Mr. Scott, do you ever use a thesaurus or some other resource to locate obscure words for your comics?
"Magnanimous" (meaning not spiteful, and forgiving) is, to me, inexplicably much more funny than if you would have said "not spiteful," or "forgiving." Were you simply aware of the word? Was it contrived? (That is, did you have to think about it heavily, or were you simply able to call upon the information forthwith?)
