Try reading just the last line of each panel. On there own, in or out of context, they are gems.

And that's why Scott's starting a spin-off, "Basic Instructions: The Prison Years"

Alls you gotta do is walk in the store all arrogant, grab the "supplies," & walk up to the register to purchase them. Look the clerk in the eyes & say, "My woman is in danger. I need supplies for my rescue mission."

I was at the store the other day, staring at a huge display of feminine products, trying to figure out where the store was hiding my brand, which my husband can always find for me. I realized at that moment that it's been years since I shopped for my own supplies. I guess I'm spoiled.

Somehow, I remember reading this one a few weeks ago, Dajavu much

It's official, this one is my absolute favorite.
Pure. Gold.

I like how The Monarch phrased it in one episode. "Are you riding your menstrual cycle?"

I thought "Ladytimes" was going to be a soap opera marathon or a shopping extravaganza

What's to be ashamed of? A man buying blood sponges indicates there is a woman in his life. He should be proud!

Well, guess who won the Unabomber hoodie and sunglasses auction.

This is comic gold. I laughed especially hard at panel two.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVR

So funny, Scott, one of your best ever, each line a winner. "supplies" - perfect!

I just say I'm making a salad.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternone

Announcing "The Ladytimes are upon me" seems incredibly badass.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKnastymike

For the disguise, I was hoping for a re-appearance of Snake Ape, but I guess that would have brought security even quicker.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

OMG, you struck gold!

I not sure who to feel sorry for, you or Missy. Good thing you found each other! ;)

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAC

This has to be one of my favourites so far. Handled so well yet still hilarious!

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterUTATS

Panel four!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FTW!

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

I just love the drug store clerk's oh so casual approach to discussing gunshot wounds with a very shady looking Scott in panel 4.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterToe Knee

LOL @ Panel 2 - So that's what why wife was doing!

Sort of takes empathic pain one step further.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWally

lol~ this is pure awesomeness!

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkal

At least you look ready to type a single-spaced manifesto about the ordeal in a Montana cabin.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternorbizness

The title alone was awesome! What is the brand name of the 'pons? I cant quite read it.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGuido

Awesome. Been there, done that repeatedly but without the security part. ROTFLMAO!

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLamarB

I thought my husband and I were the only ones to call it "ladytimes."

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJ. Snook

I'm laughing so hard that I'm crying! Poor pitiful men.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTabitha

Been there, done that. Not that I'm proud of it. In my case, the checkout guy just snickered at me.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike N

"Nothing is manlier than being a good husband." Awww, that's as sweet as "The ladytimes are upon me" is funny, which is very sweet, indeed.

Two HTML problems here:

* no "previous strip" link to browse the comic, in firefox or IE.
* no "Submit comment" button in firefox 4.

"That's your answer for everything" is probably the funniest thing I've read all week. Has Scott said it before? I'm sure he has, but can't remember which comic.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlexalcan

I had a crappy weekend, but now my week is off to an awesome start. Thanks! Great comic.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBonhomous

Panel 4 is amazingly topical, given that the FBI is currently auctioning off all of the contents of Ted Kaczynski's old shack.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterArtie

As a "lady", I have to tell my fellow ladies,
You know it's coming.
You know what you'll need.
Get some in advance.
(girls who have just started can be excused, as the time can be irregular for a while)
I've had fourty years of "ladytimes", and I've never once had to humiliate a man by sending him out for supplies.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDee

He's right. I never expected to see it (especially in a comic- but then again, Scott IS a genius) but tampons DO make good "puncture" wound dressings, as do pads make good compresses.

Oh, the things you learn in <redacted>.

May 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMikey

I thought "Ladytimes" were whenever a Meg Ryan movie was on TV.

May 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterByron Black

"That's your answer for everything." Absolutely champagne.

May 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTroy G

Oh Waily Waily, the Ladytimes are upon us!

May 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercsrster

Right up until the last panel, you can get away with preceding each speech bubble with, "As always."
"As always, I'll start assembling a disguise," is a sentence I need to utter more often.
