Is it ever frustrating to read over something and, since you wrote it, completely miss a typo and then submit your creation to an audience analogous to screeching, poo-flinging baboons who will pick up on it immediately?
I think that the footnote on your use of the word "querent" is one of the funniest things I've seen today, and that wasn't even the comic!
How have you and Mullet Boss not been fired from this place yet?
I didn't even notice it until you said that, RK. Thanks!
Panels 3 and 4 were both just great, as was the footnote.
The wordiness is what I like...
Every panel a winner. Never saw that coming!
I think this one is one of the greatest strips on this site, even as good as the Omnipotent man ones! Every panel made me at least smile, and I actually started laughing to myself at the last panel.
Oh, and thanks for the word "querent", I think I'll use it to confuse my English teacher.
I think this is the beginning of the Word-A-Day comic. Every strip you could introduce a new word. Heck, you could just make words up and let the hilarity of comments ensue.By the way - stellar comic as always.
Great, as always! Love the first panel, it really seems to summarize you and Rick's relationship.
Panel 1 wins.
Finally, I learn something potentially useful from BI! Namely, an obscure word whose meaning is easy to (heh) guess.
Nice double entendre on "low." But those two need to work on semantics. The client doesn't meet with himself.
I was expecting the foot note to be 'guess what a querent is'
Are there really people who don't know what the word "querent" means?
I love Scott's posture and grimace in panel 2 when the answers go progressively lower to culminate into the delicious double-pun: "That's pretty low!"
Ironically, using the word "querent" also led you to using more words to explain why you used it and what it meant. Love it.
If the boss is the "Querent" does that make you the "Queree"?
The problem with the word "querent" is that the dictionary states that it means the same thing as a plaintiff, which is a defendant in court.
That's annoying. I was hoping to actually have a word that literally means, "a person who has asked a question."
this word even exists? wow!
Querent; sounds like a word that will get you a punch in the nose if you call a homophobic that. :-)
