Somehow this makes me think of the South Park where Cartman is complaining that nobody cares about AIDS anymore... did I just compare dry eyes to AIDS?

"yellow visor"

Wow. I'll never look at Booster Gold the same way again.

I'm tearing up right now. Really.

I cry for dry eyes.

The FocusOnDryEye website tells me that 3000000 Americans suffer from Dry Eye. I was unaware that this even existed until you provided your 'Public Service' cartoon

The writers of the movie Conan the Barbarian were sensitive enough about the disease:

Akrio: Why do you cry?
Subotai: He is Conan, Cimmerian. He will not cry, so I cry for him.

Obviously, Conan suffers from chronic dry eye.

Hahaha! The very best line this time is (IMHO) in panel 4.... "Who cries for the dry eyes?!" So eloquent, so profound, and yet so damn funny!!!! Wonderful as always, Scott!!

It would take a lot more than that for the mulletboss to get any sympathy from me. Didn't you write a how-to-get-sympathy comic? He should read it.

May 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNate

3,000,000? that's like 1 in 10 people. Seems inflated to me.

He could be rewired like Molly in Neuromancer: "I don't cry; I spit."

We dry eyes cannot cry. We have neither tears of sadness nor tears of laughter.

@ Patrick

Are you possitive?

May 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterScott

This is great.

Should this go in the "Webcomic" or "Web original" section of http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim ?

JFinge: nice Conan reference.

May 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

Second panel made me laugh out loud. XD
So did the Conan reference. XD

man this reminded me of all the visine commercials

May 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterskulltorn

@ Martin, check your math. 3 million affected = 1 in 100 Americans. That's plausible, I suppose...

And Scott, I see you've written another tear-jerker of a comic. :-)

May 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWard

I laugh so hard that i cried. Well would have cried if i didn't suffer from dry eye

May 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterxenapan

3,000,000 (3.0 x 10^6) is one in a hundred, not one in ten, as the U.S. population is a bit more than 3.0 x 10^8

Now, 'scuse me, I gotta go blot my drippy eye.

May 17, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjuvenal

yeah i meant 1 in 100. typo. still seems off to me

May 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMartin

Yellow visor? A reference to Geordi La Forge of Star Trek Next generation by any chance?
