This has got to be the most brilliant strip ever. Scott you never cease to amaze me.

Sometimes your strip makes me smile because of your wit.
Other times, I laugh. This one made me laugh everytime I reread it.
Shared it with everyone I know.

lol, loved panel 3.

Actually, when I was a developer for a very, very small web dev shop, I can tell you that I shared these thoughts many times. If you only could imagine how often we'd say, "they want WHAT? We're not doing that. We'll fire ourselves first."

How... exactly... does one pronounce BDGAAA?

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCurious

After about two weeks of reading through all your comics, I must say this to you: Give me a hug!
But seriously. They're all amazing.

Somehow you created Scott the Two-Headed Monster between panels 1 and 2. I like it. Zaphod Beeblescott, we'll call him.

Wait a minute - isn't that almost exactly how Kirk defeats Harry Mudd in "I, Mudd"?

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercsrster

I genuinely hope you win the war against your throat Scott.

So will we be seeing the super hero reruns?

Love it!

Yay for happy lies!

@ Curious: It's pronounced "BDGAAA!," hopefully you've found this to be helpful.

Note from Scott: Actually, the b, g and d are pronounced almost simultaneously, giving the impression of several exclamations trying to force their way out of your word-hole at once.

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGiondi

@curious - its pronouncec phonetically - Buh, Duh, Gaa, as fast and angrily as you can.

@arkla - ninth, actually

@scott - have you considered a spinoff comic where you only do one panel comics? 1/4 the time, and still hilarious enough to keep everyone coming back! I don't know where you come up with consistently winning comics three times a week without fail, its brilliant!

BGDAAA! Love it!

Yes ... Zaphod Beeblescott; he needs "work-sensitive sunglasses," doncha think?

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRob

This was a good one Scott.

I have similar things happen to me when I'm talking to customers that don't realize the cheaper item they see at Sam's Club is NOT the same as the one we sell.

(Sam's/Walmart has a well established record of having electronics made specifically for their store alone, to prevent price-matching. If you look the model number up on the manufacturer's website, you often cannot find it as it's not part of their standard product line. But trying to tell a customer that is a nightmare – one I've had several times already)

Long time reader, first time poster. Just had to compliment you on such a finely crafted strip. One of the best in a while---which is saying something considering the consistent quality. I look forward to MWF mornings now.

I can see this strip being posted in many an internet-forum discussion in the future...

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWilla

It's awesome how a comic which is funny like this one can update so often. There are others that usually make me just go "meh" that have half the posting schedule. Awesome, I say!

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLerkistan

Is BDGAAA a euphemism? :)

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGeli

If I posted every time you made me laugh, I'd look like a creeper. I have to say, you're a genious! Really great strip!

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

Something tells me if a robot read this, its brain would explode.

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

And now, bring the throat roto-rooter! :)

(I'm a doctor so I'm allowed to make jokes of these things)

"hiring us to us go back hurrah, hurrah! da-da-da-da-da da-da, da-da..."

June 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaul_Bags

OK, frame 4 should really be a T-shirt all by itself...maybe left as it is, or for us consultants you could add at the end "...and charging you for it"
