I will use the rented donkey line at work tomorrow!
Oh god. That second panel had me laughing so hard.
I love the strained shouting Scott pose in panel 2. Everything is funnier when making that face.
That donkey rental line was fantastic. The rest of the comic was OK(by the standards of BI), but that second panel was wonderful.
Fry and laurie are the best at cursing with flair.
DAMN IT TO HELL AND BACK AGAIN AND BLAST AND DOUBLE DAMN
I have never laughed so hard at a pun before. Panel two made my day,
Reminds me of the cartoon Archer... they particularly enjoy using the word %#@$, probably because they aren't allowed to use the word &@!*, so you get great lines like "What the %#@$".
Since nobody has commented on it, I really like how you did the @$$ part in panel 2.
we need to see more angry customers. if angry-customer had a pet donkey, would it look like him?
(scott, there are 4 different side shots of you, and in each one you have a different jaw line)
"Welcome back to Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. Today we're tracking the rare Andalusian %#@$-parrot. And there he is! What a magnificent specimen! And what an unusual mating call!"
"Unfortunately, we've had to bleep it out because -- well -- if you heard it, you'd know how he got his name."
Always good to see Angry Customer Guy, but panel two especially rocked.
Panel two is the new panel three.
I don't get the punch line is panel 4. Can someone help me out?
I wondered if comics cursing symbols had a name, so I wouldn’t have to keep saying “comics cursing symbols.” I don’t think they do. Let me know if I’m wrong. But in the interest of brevity and the all-consuming desire to be first, I want to propose a name: “cursicals.” If that doesn’t work, perhaps “cursiphors.” Or, to introduce a little irony into the mix, “f**ksicals.”
Is it just me, or do you wait to approve comments that say "first" until you've already approved others?
Strictly speaking you aren't cursing in this installment, but using obscenities. To do a real curse, you have to draw a circle on the floor, call up a demon, and have him take care of things.While I liked panel 2, it doesn't really use obscenities. You can bet your donkey on it.
"Yelling Scott" looks like he's singing opera:
la la la la lalalala LAAAAAAA
Panel 2 is pure gold. I'll have to use that one.
