Thanks to my job at Walt Disney World, I have a few friends in Japan. Luckily, they and their families are all right. If you want to help those who aren't so lucky, here's one way.
Agreed. I totally know how he feels. Many thanks to all my worthless friends who make me feel this way!
Mnins mninn'd mnaging mne mneel mnedder! Deeeeeeeeeeerpppppppppppp.
You, sir, are a genius :)
A solid laugh in every panel. Great job, Scott.
2nd panel was the hardest I've laughed in a while. Though I do wish Rick still had long hair...
Best BI ever!
I would like to see an episode about how to disgust. Talk about irony! Brilliant!
Wait... You work at Disney World?
Note from Scott: Yes ... yes I do. If anybody has any questions about Walt Disney World, shoot away. i'll answer if I can.
Disney World Question!
How many people can you fit in a Donald Duck costume at one time?
Note from Scott: I assume you mean that little sailor costume Donald wears, since as a Cast Member I can assure you, Donald is real.
The answer is probably two people, if they each use one leg and one sleeve.
"Well, there's no need to thank me.""Agreed."I cannot wait to use that in conversation...
Is there truth to the rumor (which I heard something like 20 years ago) about men working at Disney having to be clean-shaven? I mean, if true, your head's clearly not violating that, but the face... (Wait, is 'comic you' identical to 'real you'?)
Note from scott: The comic reflects how I looked before I came to work for Disney. I did have to shave the beard, and I miss it terribly to this day. They did recently (a few years ago) change the rules so that we could have a mustache, most likely because Walt had one.
I didn't change my look in the comic partly because i miss the beard, and partly because no hair at all looks really weird in my art style. That's why I gave my brother that crazy Paul Teutel Sr. mustache.
Is it true that Walt Disney had himself cryogenically frozen and the head is now in that giant golf ball in Epcot? Because that would be awesome.
Note from Scott: No comment.
Wait...Disney lets you interact with the public? Are they mad?
Note from Scott: Clearly, they have no idea who they're dealing with.
I was just singing "Herpa derp derp, Herpa derp derp, Herpa derpa herpa derp Kit Kat bar" in my head. Those stupid Kit Kat commercials annoy me.
"hot, onion-scented surplus". Brilliant. The only change I would have made would be: "hot, onion-scented discharge".
Does this mean Mullet Boss works at Disney World?
Note from Scott: no. My workplace in the comic is based on the dynamics of everywhere I've worked. MB is not based directly on any one person. That's what I told the guy who was my boss when the comic started running in Seattle Weekly, and I'm sticking to it.
"...hot, onion-scented surplus." Now I know what to call that smell in the air behind McDonald's!
Obligatory Disney Question: Is that you, Pluto?
Nicely done, Say u don't sell anymore the t-shirt, in wich u draw the person from a picture that he sends u in a infinite loop anymore?
Note from scott: Not at the moment. They're just really labor intensive. Thanks for asking.
Is Pluto sad about not being named after a planet anymore? Or is he basking in his new status as the most famous thing named after the Romanized god of the dead?
Auto playing video ad with sound Scott!!? SHAME!
Not only major netiquette fail, but some of us are on limited bandwidth caps, and I do not selectively block ads, I stop viewing sites that carry these kinds of ads.
Note from Scott: My ad provider's supposed to stop those. I'm net getting it. What was it for, so I can complain?
aha..... explains Cinderella's 5 o'clock shadow last week...
I think I may adopt that as a username.....
For the record, Walt is not being kept in cryogenic storage in Spaceship Earth (the big golf ball). Everyone knows he's in a secret room at the top of Cinderella's Castle. He was frozen way before EPCOT was built.
I'm amazed that Rick is still friends with Scott. . . . I'm told guy's brains work differently. . . . But, still.
I'm planning on heading to Disneyworld this summer. My boyfriend (we're in our early 40's) loves your strip and posts it to his Facebook everyday. Any chance of scoring an autograph from you at Disney?
Note from Scott: Sure! E-mail me closer to when you're going.
If I remember correctly, "derp derp derp" first entered the BI lexicon as a sea lion sound effect by Rick. Hilarious then, and good to see again.
