So, does this mean there's a third Basic Instructions book on the way?

I imagine the rest of the novel to read something like Tom Waits' "What's He Building?", except it's just a bunch of people saying variations on "What's in the shed?" over and over again.

Hilarious comic, as always.

I think there should be a dash to make it nerve-wracking.

Excerpt from my script for Blood Shed: The Movie:

Moustache boss: We have to do it. We have to open the shed.

*He pushes on the door, it creaks eerily open. He and his companion go in, while the camera stays put. We then have quick cuts of the walls in turn, all covered in blood. The companion is kneeling, covered in blood.*

Moustache boss: It was blood! BLOOD!

Charlton Heston (kneeling): You maniacs! You bled it out! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!

Should "nerve wracking" be "nerve racking"? I think you're talking about testing nerves, not ruining them.

What is mullet-boss doing with his hands in panel two? It has me slightly aroused, in a "stroke & cup" kind of way.

Something about the cadence of "Blood Shed" got the song Love Shack stuck in my head. Blood Shed, baby!

His next book is the prequel, featuring the exciting origins of the titular shed in: "Tool Shed".

Excellent. Although I think we all know Mullet Boss's real magnum opus as a novelist is Fun and Laughing in Las Vegas.

So he's writing a trilogy? Blood Shed, Sweat Shed, Tears Shed?

What he needed to do was run the title together: "Bloodshed". Then the discovery of blood in the shed becomes an unexpected twist. A stupid twist, but a twist nonetheless.

OMG. Now I have 'Blood Shed' to the tune of 'Love Shack' stuck in my head.... Curse you, Lummox! :-)

Later on, in the next sequel, they'll find out where their drinking water comes from in Water Shed.

There actually was a horror movie called The Blood Shed. I remember thinking “Brilliant title!”
