How to Live Your Dreams


We're now officially back to normal. Of course, some will cry foul because this comic did run on cracked, but that's just the way my posting schedule works.  Besides, I gotta admit, this particular comic is one of my favorite things I've ever written.

Welcome back, Lordship! I read your strips on both Cracked and here, so I get a double hit! Woo!

Too sexy for my car,
Too sexy by far...

Nicely done, Scott.

Welcome back!

July 24, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbyevad

Yay! I almost wasted away DX

Wow. I actually laughed out loud when I read Rick in panel 3. This one is hilarious.

Glad to have you back, Big M.

Is this a rerun? It's weirdly familiar.

July 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJ P

Huh...I think this may be the kindest I've ever seen you be to Rick, from a writing perspective.

July 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLaurel Raven

This Rick fellow is starting to look like a man of wisdom and expirience!

Even though I have read Cracked regularly since long before BI started appearing there, I only look at it on this site. Otherwise it just feels like I am cheating on you, Scott. Also, awesome job once again.

July 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

Double awesome since it's one of your favs. And yay for Rick for once, sort of. Welcome back!

I love how the conversations are EXACTLY the SAME, only VASTLY DIFFERENT. Great. Welcome back, Scott. Loved the reruns, but I'm glad to see new stuff.

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

Welcome back! And you've come back with a good 'un....

Deep stuff, man. I remember seeing Benny and Joon and thinking "She's crazy, that's so hot" and many years later and wiser seeing Howard's End and (alone among my friends) preferring Emma Thompson to Helena Bonham Carter insofar as "She's sane, that's so hot".

Woah, how is it that young Rick looks like he is the same age as young Rick, although he is about ten years older? :D

Also, John, it's not like Cracker are simply posting Basic Instructions without authorisation. It is part of a deal they have, so it's all good, I think.

I read the comics on Cracked and here. That way Cracked will continue to pay Scott that mad Webcomic money.

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterC.S.Strowbridge

Glad you're back, though I enjoyed the superhero collection again, and the guest comic!
Today's is great, yet poignant - I'm still personally stuck at panel 2.

TMBG shirt ftw!

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarkusWolf

good to see you back Scott...enjoyed reading the reruns but Im waiting for some brand new shiny brilliance

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCliff_Mystic

If you want a color the police won't notice, my recommendation is metallic grandma green. I used to have one as a teen when the speed limits were 55. Even at 85, never stopped on the highway. It was great! Just like having a cloaking device!

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermcinsand

Hah! If it's really a new comic then why does the copyright thingy say....oh nevermind.

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKibi

With hair like that I can see why you shaved your head

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdoppleganger

I must have missed the comment thread controversy in re Cracked. (Can't say I'm sorry about that.)

Well, glad you got through surgery okay. You're not dead, so you must be stronger.

I did enjoy the Supers marathon. Toss in a cheezy Hostess advert and it would have been just like my childhood.

Welcome back, Scott.

I already posted this under the rerun of 'How to create a diversion', but it probably won't be seen by many people there: The Moon Emperor's plan seems to be coming closer to reality. On Saturday, Manchester United played at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears), though the game wasn't against the Bears and I don't think Madden was anywhere to be seen.

Note from Scott: Thanks for helping prove, yet again that I am the Nostradamus of comics!

This comic reflects the old adage: 'If your not a liberal at 20 you have no heart. If your not a conservative at 40 you have no brain."

Nice to see the Flood shirt again. Personally, I've always been a "color the police won't notice" man myself.

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

Right said Fred, both of us together now
One each end and steady as we go.

Tried to lift it, couldn't even shift it
We was getting nowhere.

And so we had a cup of tea...


Oh... the shirt was for the band, not the song? Dang, I always liked that song. Sorry if I mucked up the lyrics, did that from memory (which is probably more disturbing than anything else).

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergekkobear

Awesome strip, yet again! Great to have you back, Scott!

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

Welcome back!

This comic gave me the wonderful laugh I needed to brighten my day.

Thank you! :)

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCally

welcome back - hope everything is well on your world. Another great laugh = thanks!

July 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersillyus

Oh yeh... thats one of the gooduns! Welcome back.

July 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAdam

I didn't know about the licensing with Cracked. Glad you are making money because I was worried you would start charging us and I am such a cheap bastid I would have a hard time convincing my wife to let me spend the money on this. thank you for keeping it free it's the best strip I have ever read.

July 26, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdeimoscom

Wow, that's so funny on a personal level because when I met my husband, I thought he was driving a strangly practical car for a young bachelor.

July 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKitty

this one has to be the best one! !! for emphasis
