Hahahaha! Robot porn...
Scott's keen powers of observation have once again destroyed my innocent perception of the mindless filler on the DIY / HGTV channels. I can never again watch an episode of "This Old House" without sniggering at the sound track. Priceless!
Hmm... panel 3 my first thought was "Haydn piano sonatas." I wonder if there's a pattern there.... Also: you need more strips with your cat in them.
HAHA! Gotta say, Scott, your comics are awesome. They always brought laughs when I hung them on my shop door in Afghanistan. Thanks for what you do.
Note from scott: That is really good to hear, ... and thanks for what you do!
and now to try to unscramble the science channel
My work is like porn but less rewarding.
O_O This happens to me everyday for two hours after work....Ive been watching machine porn? GAHHHHH
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Scott's face in the 3rd panel killed.
"Porno music," can only ever be accompanied by a fist pump.
Gives a new meaning to the DIY Network eh?
Soon to be 10!
Panel 3 made me spit beer! You, sir, are the best thing to happen to comix in a long time! Huzzah!
Hahaha brilliant as always
Panel 3 made me snort. Very unladylike.
You're awesome at Panel 3. You should make a comic that's made entirely pf Panel 3s.
I love the joyful pose in which he says "Porno music." :D
I loved panel 3, Great job. This is defiantly one of my favorites by far!
We've watched marathons of How It's Made before and it becomes mind deadening at around the fifth or sixth episode. btw The How It's Made drinking game: take a shot whenever a pun is made. Not for use with hard alchohol.
Third panel: "Yeah! Porno music! Woo hoo!"
Porno music always deserves a triumphant air punch, except when you're alone, watching a porno...
I so loled at "PORN MUSIC". :DGreat strip!
Oooh we now have Couch / Sofa poses :)on the other hand Missy only has 4 toes :(
I was watching How It's Made once when a friend walked in and pointed out I was watching lathe porn!
Genius, as always. Thanks for the laugh
so married life is sitting at opposite ends of the coach TALKING about porn.......
being single no longer feels so bad.
Mister Rodgers did this quite well. As he was working long before the porn industry was cranking out titles, it would seem to stand that they are mimicking him, not the other way around.
A little too excited about the porno music in Panel 3?
Scott's gloriously victorious expression in panel three is priceless, not to mention his jubilant exclamation.
Porn isn't educational TV?
......and now I know why I love those shows.
Is the title of this comic intended to be this creepy? It had me thinking Scott had started to go a little off the deep end, seeing "patterns" everywhere, but luckily I was wrong, just another solid four panels of LOLs.
Seems to be a lot of love for panel 3 which did make me grin, but I didn't laugh till the panel 4 punch line."And we've watched five straight episodes."
@The Chosen One
They started us early and now we just can't get enough. Sesame Street was doing it, too. I still get the peanut butter song stuck in my head.
I love that the cat is providing you its classically feline input: cat butt.
Actual porn music might make How It's Made watchable. It's the kind of show I really want to like, but it's too darn dull. The narrator sounds like he's doing an eductional program from the '80s. Of course, before he took over all the narration segments the intros were done by a woman with a highly grating voice, who made the bad puns come out a hundred times worse.
Loved it! Can't believe I haven't noticed the similarity in patterns before. Considering the topic I almost expected each frame of the comic to be the same layout or something as well.
"Porno music" and a fist pump...new t-shirt, perhaps?
Is there any way to incorporate the cat into a rocket hat episode? maybe the cat can be a silent sidekick? or a snack that is highly desirable to moon men?love the porn music reference!
How come we only ever see ONE of your cats in the strip?
Note from Scott: Nobody sees the other cat. EVER!
My girlfriend and I are the same way. We watch marathons of shows and pick them apart, but we just keep watching.
Scott, love you even more for the shout-out to "How It's Made" and "Factory Made"! My husband is not as big a fan, though; maybe if I used the porn comparison he'll change his mind!
