How to Make Fun of the Opposite Sex

I'm considering doing an event in Seattle in late March/Early april. It'd be a book signing / Presentation / Q&A. Missy, Ric and many other familiar faces would be in attendance.  

I would be there also.

There'd be a small door charge to help cover travel costs and such. If you're in the Greater Seattle Metroplex, and would be interested in attending such a thing, please say so in the comments below. I'm just trying to see if the whole thing is feasible.

This one is REALLY funny

A woman driving a V8 engine would impress a man, but a man in heels would not impress a woman (or not in the same way, that is)

I had to immediately google that. Can we call it "Auntie Sam" instead so I don't feel so sordid?

December 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterShackleford Hurtmore

If I lived anywhere near Seattle that would be a "Duh." Since I don't, I wonder, Scott, are you ready for the onslaught of adoring fans and trivial questions about your B.I. universe? Or will you be making a Shatner-esque SNL appearance immediately afterward? =)

I would be interested in your meeting provided it included you eating a 12 egg omelet at Beth's Cafe in Green Lake.

Well, I guess not; I'd stop by any way.

December 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRy Jones

Can't attend, since I live in South America :-)

Basic Instructions in Seattle? I would be interested in attending such a thing. Please keep us posted.

>>>I'm considering doing an event in Seattle in late March/Early april. It'd be a book signing / Presentation / Q&A. Missy, Ric and many other familiar faces would be in attendance.

I would be there also.<<<

But the REAL question is, will you be there wearing a "sexy Uncle Sam" costume?

December 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKierkegaard

I, too, would be very interested in a Seattle area... thing. Count me in.

December 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDargocitfer

Wow, "Sexy Uncle Sam" wants you. Wonder if they'll update the old poster...

December 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJohn M

I live in Portland. If I can make it up to Seattle (or if you decide to drop down here as well), I will so be there... But only if Missy wears high heels, because I would not ever bear to look at a woman who doesn't... Oh wait; that's not true. I forgot that I've never once noticed a woman's shoes. Oops.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSmith

I live in the Seattle area and would definitely be there if you decide to do it. You & Missy signed my copy of "Help is on the way" and I'd love to meet you all & get signed copies of your other books.
I'll even wear my InfiniTee.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRon

This one is excellent. I love that first panel.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

Seattle event: yes please.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBjorn

If Ric promises to dress as the Moon-Men Emperor, I will haul my lazy up from Olympia for the occasion.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJudas Peckerwood

Travelling to Seattle might be a little too far for me: when will you visit Australia? Mind you, the last panel makes the cost of the trip almost worth it.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTroyG

Your copyright says 2011!!! OMG!!! What is one to do? I guess I better whine at the author!!

Living about 10 miles East of Seattle, I would be very interested in a book-signing/Q&A/Presentation thing. I might even break down and buy a book. That, along with the far superior brewery options (compared to FL), ought to make it worth your while.

And Sexy Uncle Sam is just creepy...

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterphaser

I would very strongly consider coming up from Portland, ideally if on Sat night.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRob

Thank you. I just shot soda out my nose onto my keyboard. A sammich was also lost in the ensuing melee.

Oh well the laughs were better than the sammich. Keep up the great work man.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSerne

I would definitely like to see you in Seattle. Only if you dress up as Uncle Sam and Rick as knifeketeer.. ;)

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGHR

I would definitely be interested in attending a Seattle event, if it should occur. We've got a Comic Convention every March (ECCC), but it's probably sold out for this year already. Either way, though, that's a big yes from me!

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnthony vW

I'm in Seattle and would love to come to such an event. How formal an event? Black T-shirts only?

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSteveL

hahahahah "The feeling is mutual"

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHngggg


Mrs Dolbia is shouting COMMENT COMMENT COMMENT until I say that yes, please, we would like to go to an event and pay entrance fee and buy your books and possibly buy you meals as well. Except Ric. He can get his own meals.


December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDolbia

I'd totally fly up from SF for that

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMaitland

Any plans for a tour, Scott? If so, I suggest the smoking jacket for signings.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnother Rob

Understand, the grammar nazis drive me a little nuts too, but I just can't resist pointing this one out, it's too funny. Will the entire event in Seattle be done in pirate voice? "There's be a small door charge…" No doubt gold doubloons are preferred, or pieces of eight.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjpoteet2

Another YES vote for Seattle.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLime D. Zeze

I would fly from the East coast to any event that includes Scott in a smoking jacket (complete with ascot).

Also, I now have my Halloween costume for next year: Sexy Uncle Sam! I can be slutty and patriotic all at the same time! Win!

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Yeah! We're in from Moses Lake! (Bonus points if anyone actually knows where that is. Double bonus points if you've ever been OFF I-90 in the process.)

Note from Scott: Who do you think you're talking to?! I've been to Moses Lake! I've seen the inexplicable JAL 747s circling like vultures. I've eaten friend (Sorry for the typo. Meant "fried", not "friend") mushrooms at Zip's.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEasternWAhead

Dear Scott:
Have considered doing a world tour with the rest of the gang?
Here in México te esperamos con los brazos abiertos... well at least I know I do.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos Castillo

Four words: high heels with jeans. What the hell is that all about?

If you're petite then just wear a tiny skirt to make your legs look longer--problem solved.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

Can't make Seattle, but if you ever come to the Twin Cities I'll take you and your posse to Buffalo Wild Wings. Keep up the great work!

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSteveR

I work in Seattle and would love to come. Hopefully this signing would be in the late afternoon/early evening hours, or on a weekend?

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike N

I'm on the other side of the country. Any chance Omnipresent Man could do the event so I could check it out without leaving my house?

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterArtie

I would, but sadly, I'm in Orlando now and not Seattle. If you flew Rick down here (and maybe your brother too), I would gladly pay an admission cost. I would probably also buy you a glass of bourbon. For kicks.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGonzo

I'd certainly try to attend such an event; if nothing else, I want to see how well the figures in the comics match the real world! :>

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Panel three...
I will never see an image of Uncle Sam again without laughing uncontrollably.
Thank you; Inexplicable and seemingly unprovoked laughter is just one way I keep 'em wondering when was the last time I dropped in "to see what condition my condition was in"
...and gentlemen, we'll stop asking what you think of "this" outfit the day after you show you are able to walk past the little number in the short red dress with the long black stockings without getting whiplash.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDee

Argh, how about Portland, OR? There's so much more to do in Portland! Plus, I live in Portland.

December 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel

I would definitely want to see you at a Seattle event!

And I assure you that I would notice a woman wearing only high-heeled shoes.
