Romeo and Juliet spoiler alert!
Is this the plot for the next Rom-Com with Jennifer Aniston? Or, maybe, an episode ofGlee?
as much as i enjoy bi, this is the first one i've actually laughed out loud while reading in a long time.
is the caption to panel 3 intentionally self-contradictory?...oh, now it's fixed...interesting...
I write YA fiction. I seem to have this exact conversation with my agent or an editor at least once every few months. (But I'm Scott, thank God.)
Thank you for speaking to my pain! I wonder if showing them this cartoon would help my case ...
I love Mullet Boss's conclusion.
Oh, God. I'm scared to sleep now....
To be honest, I think the story idea in the first panel could be interesting if done well
"It was like a reverse 'Mulan', and I still say it would've worked!"
Corporal Klinger disagrees.
seriously dude, that's just gross.
Panel 2 was perfect. Well done sir!
A reverse Mulan? Yeah, the "Achilles for Kids" idea may actually be better than "Two Lice, One Host: They Fight Crime."
Remember the Tick!
Dreamworks is reading this comic and a lightbulb is appearing over their figurative/collective head.
Being Dreamworks, the title writes itself: "Lice".
Nobody likes lice . . . so when they die it's a happy ending. AWESOME!!!
Hey, you beat CRACKED to the punch, this time!
This afternoon's article draws an analogy between happiness and the number of lice on one's body.
Wow, this is brilliant. That is all.
Definitely gave me a great idea for a book I'm probably never gonna write.
Reverse Mulan sounds like a good idea for a comedy story. Mullet Boss would probably write it as a melodramatic tragedy about the horrors of war and sexual confusion.
I actually think Mullet Boss's idea in the first panel is pretty good. I'd read that.
I shouldn't read your strip after beer #3. I laughed so hard I almost grayed out.
"Theirs was a forbidden love"
I missread "pubic" for "pubLic" so when i read "he was a public louse" i thought it was some kind of reverse Noting Hill story. Ooops
