What's a Clyde?

"Reno offers the crime of a big city with the crushing lack of opprtunity of a small town."
LOL! That is such a perfect description of MANY cities in the US.

Sadly, a few of which I have lived in...

I'm pretty sure that was an actual slogan for Mesquite, NV. "What happens in Vegas, costs less in Mesquite."

Note from Scott: If that's true, I apologize to the city of Mesquite. That said, I Googled the phrase without a city name while writing the strip and found nothing, and just now Googled it with Mesquite's name attached, and still found nothing. So, If Mesquite's tourism board was using that as a slogan, they weren't using it very effectively.

I really liked the slogans. Will there be more on the 'Clydes'?

Oh, very good... I take it you're not planning on visiting Reno any time soon!

Clyde as in Pac Man??

Reno: At least we aren't Janet.

Very impressive collection of one line zingers today.

I'm fairly confident that "What happens in Vegas costs less in Mesquite" was spoken in a commercial for Mesquite, but I don't think it ever became an official slogan for them. Currently, their official slogan is "Escape, momentarily," which is hilarious in the context of the comic.

I didn't know what a Clyde was either, so I googled it. Turns out that a clyde is "a river in western Scotland that flows from the southern uplands into the Firth of Clyde; navigable by oceangoing vessels as far as Glasgow." Hopefully that will clear up any confusion.

I thought it was just a picture of Thomas Lennon in cop short-shorts, playing craps against the side of a Hardee's building.

I don't know what a Clyde is but I don't care, the first panel is absolutely amazing.

March 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterhighritz

Clyde: rube or bumpkin (biker culture roots)

March 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHarry Badface

I shot a man there once.

March 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnon

Sounds like a good slogan to me. Certainly better than its current one, which I remembered from Sister Act.

March 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

All right, Anon, Johnny Cash has been dead for years. So unless you can whip out a black guitar and and can play.... (starts hearing Falsom Prison Blues in background) Oh. My mistake.

March 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThatJeff

You shot a man in Clyde?

Did you stay to watch him die, Anon?

March 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNalano

Lovely as always. "business travelers" made me burst out laughing.

March 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJuli Carvi

"Reno: come visit optimism's grave" Classic!

March 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMiron

Dude - change up your font choices. The panel subhead is too overbearing and the "handwritten" word bubbles aren't easily legible.

I like the lolz though.

As a Reno (area) native, well done, my man, well done.

Hi to Scott and the Mrs. from Jerry in Seattle

Note from Scott: Hi Jerry! How're you?

March 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJerry

Reno: You didn't really want to see Robert Goulet, did you?

March 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterByron Black

Scott and Rick are so in their right element in panel three; making fun of others.


March 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSkywalker

are you sure you arent talking about Buffalo NY?

March 23, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterisiah

Reno, still better than living in California. That's a slogan with staying power.

March 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterR

damn it, how i'd wish to know, at least, one Reno's native, just to invite him/her to know this wonderful strip.

March 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos Castillo

A clyde is a :
–noun Slang .
( sometimes initial capital letter ) a stupid, inept, or boorish person.

From :

Hope that clears it out.
Scott, you, sir, are a decaffeinated genius. Lulz from Tunisia.

Reno: close enough to hell you can see Sparks.

March 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

I happen to live not too far from the River Clyde that Gary mentioned (sail and kayak on it regularly), would love to know what your definition of Clyde is!!

Keep up the good work Scott!

March 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlistair

Hey, I'm from Reno, and I thought this comic was incredibly offensive- ESPECIALLY after I found out what a "Clyde" is!

Seriously though, I love these comics. Keep up the good work!

Why is the truth so dang funny. Yes indeed, we may somewhat live this strip here in Reno/Sparks.
I'm taking the Vegas/Reno slogan to the streets although I truly prefer our slogan "WE LOVE THIS PLACE". Every weekend a party and living on the edge of God's country (Lake Tahoe) makes it all beautiful and worthwile.
Can't wait for next weekend.
God, "I love this place"!

Since many didn't seem to not understand what a "Clyde" is I'd like to try to clear up the confusion. A "Clyde" is very similar to a "Melvin" as in "Man I hate visiting my cousins. They're all a bunch of fucking Melvins".
