*Skips down the hall* I don't believe you! I don't believe you!
This one has a much stronger tone than usual of "based on a true story". Hmm.
Is that "and he's all "AHH." like
"AHHHH!! YOU'RE GOING TO GO ON A MURDEROUS RAMPAGE BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE PEANUT BUTTER!!!!"
"AHH, you don't have peanut butter. How does that make you feel?"
"AHH, I so knew you would find a way to screw up the simplest thing..."
I can't help but think that the characters should be swapped around.
Anybody who starts a story with "I make the best <food>" without subsequently placing an item of <food> in my hand is off my friend list.
That reminds me of the funniest story ever. Basically there I was in an everyday situation, when a person with a comical misunderstanding about the nature of my job arrived! We exchanged humorous words that underscored this disparity, and then I said something clever which made them realise the error of their ways.
What are no-bake peanut butter cookies?
Wait shouldn't Scott be more concerned with no-bake cookies. As it's not a cookie. Whole point is a cookie is baked.
What is next non-freeze ice cream? (Glass of milk with vanilla flavouring in it if anyone wants the recipe)
I agree - the claim must be backed up with samples. off-topic, I found this great strip when Yahoo started carrying it. Does it benefit you more to read it here or there?
Note from Scott: If you read it from my site I get the ad revenue. If you read it on Yahoo, I get "exposure", which I am told is valuable, usually by people who can offer lots of "exposure" and no money.
Are you sure the boyfriend didn't say "BGDAAH!"?
I am not sure if you know this or not, but GoComics has not published your comic today. I typically see your comic there FIRST before I come here to read the comments. So, you may need/wish to check with GoComics to see what is going on.
I love no-bake peanut butter cookies, but they are indeed more of a candy than cookie.
I love Innominate's story. I wish I could + comments.
@Stevens, A local ice cream place sells an Xmas "eggnog" that I am convinced is just their vanilla ice cream batter that has not been frozen. It is the only "eggnog" that tastes good without rum.
There's condescending and there's hand-on-the-shoulder condescending. Ouch.
For the uninitiated: No-bake cookies are mostly oatmeal, cocoa and peanut butter. If that sounds more like candy than a cookie then you get the idea. They are delicious, and the oatmeal makes them healthier than a Hershey bar. Yep, I'm going with healthy. You bet.
Googling around a little I find that no-bake cookies are in fact cooked, so I think it's okay to call them cookies. Just don't call them bakies!
Stevens, you have obviously never had Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies, the pinnacle of chocolate peanut-butter indulgence. Guaranteed addiction, complete with mind-altering sugar high!
I'm sure glad you interrupted my laughing to tell me the funny part. priceless
To this day I still wonder why they don't sell melted ice cream. The stuff tastes delicious! To the point where I just let the ice cream melt in its glass before I start spooning it into my mouth. And no, it's not a milk shake either. It's ... MELTED ICE CREAM! YAY!

I like the way you think.
Gocomics always posts the Wednesday strip on Thursday. I don't know why....
Last line of panel three. I'm just waiting for the next time someone makes no-bake cookies. Which, considering I'm from northern Minnesota, will likely be the next time I go home. I'm just sad I never thought of this myself.

And this is a food? It sounds impressively revolting.
@Stevens well, there's also no-freeze chocolat icecream. Yummy! And you can even make it hot.

This very statement demonstrates how the use of "their" and "them" in the stead of the proper "his" and "he" smacks of amateurishness. It just reminds me of a fourteen-year-old girl, unaware of the proper terms, using what she habitually uses, rather than ever questioning this obnoxious standard.
