Well, you might still want to wear a glove for protection, like maybe a boxing glove...

Time to buy some hand sanitizer...

Hahah, the "Conjunctivirus". Awesome

You could always sanitize the region with an aerosol disinfectant. I'm sure those warnings about eye contact and consulting a physician are just suggestions.

I get a feeling Scott my be living out a fantasy here...

Shouldn't Scott be dipping his hand in sanitizer -after- he punches the boss? Otherwise he could end up spreading the virus to other people, requiring him to punch them in the eye... ohhhh, I get it!

Is touching eyes with someone even possible? It must be like trying to lick your own elbow!

I'd sanitize my hand afterward instead. But before causes boss more pain. Do both, win/win.

Side note: I think it can also be bacterial.

Every time I see someone NOT capitalize "of" and "to" in the middle of a title, my day gets just a little bit brighter. Thank you, Scott!

I thought the fourth(t) panel was going to be about how you had blacked the wrong eye and needed to do the other side now. Good stuff man, I bought your first book for my brother last year so I think he needs the sequel this year.

Hand sanitizer? Doesn't Scott have a perfectly serviceable board (with the word knowledge on it) to whack people with? I'm sure that he could use it as an eye poker in a pinch.

@Thom re: glove - Boxing glove too soft to get job done, I think brass knuckles would do better. Easy to clean, more effective in blackening the eye region...

Love the conversation! :) Maybe a little retouch on the faces to show their emotions would be perfect!

@The KFV: Yes, but brass knuckles don't provide any protection to the hands. The suggestion was to keep the pinkeye from spreading, not to inflict more damage. I suppose you could modify the boxing glove, put little spikes on it or something.
