How to Give Someone An Intangible Gift

Yeah, this one's been in a holding pattern for a while. Since we're on the subject of gifts, please don't forget about the people of Christchurch, New Zealand. Charlie Sheen may be beyond help, but they're not.

Awesome; I love the claw in the last panel.

Ah yes, the "International Star Registry", or whatever the heck it was called. Truly a scam for the totally clueless. Good take on it here.

Avid lurker here, Thanks so much for thinking about us in New Zealand, or as Australians might say the "Shaky Isles".

Oi ACF that's my line. Awesome Scott, and thanks for including Christchurch again.

Two words, "Crotch Panel"

I couldn't be more horrified by what we are doing to areas of the galaxy that potentially hold life. I recall an episode of Scrubs where JD named a star Freckle Fart, and I know there are some stupider people than that out there...

Just wanted to post and thank you for the new zealand plug with regards the Christchurch earthquake, I have been reading your comics for a while (in fact I tagged my wife and I in the one about mens emotions) and am really quite amazed and touched that you took the time out to mention New Zealand and get support.

This is one of the rare cases, in which I love every single panel. thank you

Good call on the New Zealand plug. Completely unrelated side note: Future Scott = My next Halloween costume. Either that or Future Rick's electronic cod piece.

I'm going to be using that line amongst my less-than-internet-savvy friends.

The comic was funny, but it was the line about Charlie Sheen that really made me laugh. It's so great that you're using your comic like this.

It's intantible. Not intangable. Check the URL and your RSS feeds.

KidTheFat: Don't worry, those "star registries" are complete scams. Only the International Astronomy Union can officially name stars, and they don't name them after any random jackass that gives them $20.

"This calls for krun-par" is a phrase with countless potential applications. I expect that I'll find myself using it several times a day. Thanks, Scott, for fashioning such a funny AND practical comic!

Future Scott always wears a sorta creepy cod-piece.

March 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJ

Patrick, I think there's some Internet rule about what happens when you try to correct someone!

Krun=par? Bring it on, your alien hide will make a fine poncho.

March 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLumpy

Great comic. Just wanted to say thanks for including Christchurch. I am from Christchurch and now that we finally have electricity back on, your comic is providing some much needed comedic relief for me!

The beauty of the final panel is that Future Scott doesn't speak Alienish, he just
anticipated the reaction when introducing Rick, who looks like a guy that has
pinching as his favourite weapon in the first place.

Something many people don't realize is that more than one in every twelve people in New Zealand live in Christchurch. Proportionately, that's larger than New York. This makes overseas support all the more important; we really do appreciate it. Thanks to everyone who has helped out.

The codpiece is to protect the world from his radioactive genitals, of course.

March 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermisterfweem

This may have been commented on already, but -- is Rick's codpiece that of the Dark Genitals of the Sith?

March 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRob

let me see if i got it right... Rick has a mechanic claw, o.k. then scott's glasses must be some kind of bionic attachment, right??

"I had a star named after you."
"Really? Which one?"
